When filling up (yes, another petrol station thread!) do you accept the click?
I certainly do not. Two click minimum.
could be a splashback
til I realised this always lead to excessive dribbling. Now I'm a one-click man. It's a calmer life.
do you bother checking whether it's petrol or diesel? All the same isn't it.
a diesel hole and vice versa.
your thinly veiled sexim.
you can put petrol in a diesel but not diesel in a petrol iirc
not going to try this
i don't know are you filling your car to the max everytime isn't that what your parents tell you not to do
i don't know what the click is
little oases in a desert of despair.
Filling right up is the most economical way of doing it.
does the click happen when you've got optimal fuel to weight to get the furthest?
£85ish of deisel
do you mean you drive an actual tank?
Get about 650 miles out of it though
£899 if I double click.
which gives me about half a tank.
Always worried my car will pack in (it's pretty old) so would never want it to have a full tank.
keep going to round up to the nearest fiver. if that means spraying petrol everywhere, then so be it
As I had a car that would leak if it got too full. Especially if you filled up when it was cold then it got really warm, I guess it expanded in the tank. It would just come out of the petrol cap and dribble down the side.
Sucking it out of other people's cars in the dead of night
Between 1/4 and empty.
I just drive back in.
or before a long journey.
Not good to let a diesel go under a 1/4 tank.
until you can nail a triple click?
Averages out at about 550
more if I have some work trips to some godforsaken hellhole (the midlands or Essex).
My expenses are getting ridiculous
100 if I'm busy
I don't drive to work though.
i only drive to football or gregs
Usually wait a bit between clicks too. Let the petrol settle.
round up to the nearest 10p. Not sure why - just seems to be the right thing to do.
Usually put £20 in, or £40 if I'm feeling flush.
because if I crash it's less likely to explode if it'sa not full .
So a tank full to the brim is probably safer.
I put £35-worth in, which is usually enough to get me to work and back for two weeks, although I can usually stretch this by borrowing my work's pool car and engineering jobs at the end of the day so I can take their car home instead.
someone let me have a go on their car?
I think i just thissed smee's awful post by accident
all that extra weight of fuel increasing the load on your car's performance, reducing the efficiency, wasting energy and valuable resources
Seen a few drivers get covered in diesel as a result :D
Serves 'em right for filling the tank, when we're only supposed to do 3/4.
use a pay at pump with a debit card and it won't poll the charge until the following working day, meaning filling up on a friday won't hit your account until monday am. good to know if pay day is monday and you need gas on the saturday. this works with HBOS accounts and Asda, Tesco and Morrisons PaPs.
additionally; it should be called "gas", not petrol. gas is short for gasoline, which is more accurate that the name petrol.
I'd bet a lot of money that the vast majority of Brits call it "petrol" rather than (the technically more correct) "gasoline".
