    Default Robbing Bar stewards

    Just been to my local VX dealer to get some 10/40 semi oil. I know its cheaper on Auto vaux but really wanted it today to change oil. I thought probably be a few quid dearer. Parts man comes back with the oil thats £29.00 please
    Youre having a laugh i said, no thats the price all VX dealers charge he said.

    Guess what i didnt buy it. Went on Auto Vauv £12.04 for the same oil. A 300% mark up daylight robbery. So i bought 4 off and quite a few other bits and bobs as well.

    Just have to wait for a different day to change my oil, but at least i havnt been ripped off.

    Rant over
