How to score some petrol.
« on: March 28, 2012, 08:23:25 PM »
Not really.

Heard second and third hand of petrol based lunacy locally today. Is it really kicking off already.

If you fill up now surely you'll run out just in time for the possible strikes?

Govt policy is apparently to panic buy. My bath is already full, certainly curtailed smoking on the bog.


Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.

Filling at Asda late last night (after Lidl shopping and Blunsdon arms grill night) was a nightmare. Lots of panicky car owners all filling right up.

Well done Cameron :tickedoff:

Hahahahaha, brilliant :)

I'll fill mine up at 4 inda morning, as usual, and it will last me about 3 weeks or 1,000 miles, whichever comes sooner...as usual.

Panic buying seems to be infectious and is likely to make minor supply problems/issues much worse.

As a user Perhaps you can enlighten us all as to how many charging points by the roadside, at workplaces or car parks are there in vibrant, innovative, Swindon?

I don't know about electrical charge points. (I'd guess that there are Nil within 20 miles of the Civic.) However, feel free to be the first customer at SBC's partnership liquid Hydrogen pit stop up at Honda, Steve. Why not pop up there and have a word with the pump attendant ahead of the May elections? That'll counter any "Look what we've done." claims!

What will you find?
What's it all about?

Well as far as i am aware there is my house that i currently live in and the place I purchased it from a year ago which is Fish brothers (Nissan) at Bridgemead.

It has on-board satnav which highlights charge points across the Uk. I will have a look at the weekend and make notes of locations. I don't think Swindon has any.
If you do a Google search for Nissan leaf charging stations ukyou will get various links.
I suppose if i got stuck I could always ask someone if I could plug it in.

Chav: Plugged mine in - tis on charge

well, youre alright then Chav - well until the electric station srun out or no one can get to work to switch them on!   ::) 

Come to think of it, my transport is plugged in too.

Oi! Listen mush. Old eyes, remember? I’ve been around the block a few times. More than a few. They’ve knocked down the blocks I’ve been around and rebuilt them as bigger blocks. Super blocks. And I’ve been round them as well.  The Doctor (Night Terrors)

Look out for the one with a knob on the end.

I've got a t shirt with an AK47 on it with all the parts noted in that Russian Cyrillic writing.

I've always had questionable taste in t shirts.

I got it from f*ckin Bulgaria on the holiday from hell.

And I've got a Prague one with a 'No Tanks' road sign, that was a pressie.

My favourite, worn to pieces, was a 'Charlie don't Surf, 1967 Da Nang Surf Classic'. Saw it behind a pub bar and bought it, never seen one since.

Wore it to a Chinese restaurant in a moment of fashion befuddlement.

I'm a stranger to Armani.

And that restaurant.

What does the KGB stand for? Keith, Gary, Bluh?
