Learning from you guys in the USA

It's just struck me as a little ironic that I should be learning so much about fuel-economy from a site in the US!!

I'm old enough to remember the days when you were all driving huge V8 powered gas-guzzlers and it was us here in Europe who were driving the little bitty econo-boxes!

But the world moves on...

You have one major advantage over us in the UK - with your big local market many auto parts are much cheaper and more readily available in the US than here in the UK.

Even Correx - or is it Coroplast in the US? - is double the price here!

I think we're also still paying a LOT more for our fuel than you (mostly TAX!!!) I am currently paying USD2.26 per litre for Diesel or USD8.55 per US Gallon!
