I gather you either tip a bottle of `lead additive' in your tank

It makes me fu@king mad that they keep putting the price of petrol up to
"stop ppl using their cars".
Im not the most travelled person in Britain, but I do know that if you
live in, say, London, then you don't really need a car, as there is a
decent public transport system in place.
It would appear that the present governemnt is determind to make us
"rural country folk" suffer just because they base all their environmental
issues on shitty, crappy, stinking London. If I want to go out anywhere,
I *have* to use my car because there is no public transport to speak of, and
even if there was, I doubt it would go to the places I want to go to. To go to
the cinema for example, I have to drive 25 miles, which takes me 20/25
mintues. If I were to go to the cinema on PT, I claim it would take me 2
hours plus, and then I would not be able to get home until the next morning.
If they really want to stop ppl using their cars (by this I presume
stopping ppl driving to work in "the cities"), then they need to
tax/penalise the ppl that do so. Maybe inner city tolls would do the
trick. But to keep hiking up the price of petrol makes me want to punch
the bast@rds in the face. Its about time they pulled their heads out of
their backsides and actually found out how "real" people live, not just
everyone south of Watford.
