Fuel/utilities/ Rip Off

March 10, 2016

Bob, In the 1960's I had 1 x TR4 and later 3 x TR6 (not same time!!), and could fill the tank for a fiver, using grade 5 fuel,enough for many days, which took me many miles, costing 5 or 6 quid for a full week, and pleasure drives extra, but nowadays it would cost me a month's wages ...just to go into the city centre, 2 miles max...well.. a bit more... It is a real rip-off, as ever. LFC 2 MUppets 0...
