I have discovered the secret

Husband said, 'Now remember, if you have to put fuel in, that Minni's a diesel car.'
'But you should have enough.'

I checked when I got in and according to Minni I had enough petrol - sorry, diesel - to travel 391 miles. When I got to Newport, about 45 miles away, I had enough pet...diesel to travel 392 miles!

I was driving so economically that I wasn't just saving fuel: I was making it!!

What with this post as well as the last one, I'm guessing that maths isn't your strong point?

That's what my BMW does, it's mad, some times I end up with more miles than I started with and for the life of me I just don't get it.

By the way if you go to comment moderation you can delete the spammers comments.

Bet your loving it down there with the baby, have fun.
Much love

Can you teach me that trick, I am sure it would be useful!

Does it always do that?

Those 'fuel range' indicators are notoriously unreliable, did you know that? We drove into town and back on Sunday with mine reading 'O'! LOL!

This could be the answer to worries about fossil fuels running out . They need to put you in charge .

Now, this is a secret I'd like to know, especially with gas prices going up!

Good luck with getting rid of the spammers--they seem to be everywhere lately.
