    Unhappy Don't park facing down a slope!

    Got up this morning ready for a nice early start, fires up the siggy and gets out to scrape windows...
    Siggy conks out through lack of diesel with 70 miles or so left in the tank, I then spend 2 hrs with my mate getting the thing started again!
    So basically dont park a diesel siggy facing down a slope with not much fuel in it unless you like pushing cars and spilling stinky diesel all over yourself.

    Here endeth the lesson for today.

    Oh it's a pain in the arse all right, I wouldn't care but if my fuel light is on I usually park it on the road where it's nice and flat but I still had 68 miles indicated...

    Probably would have been fine if I didn't have to scrape the windows.
