Get in car, start car, put into drive, drive to petrol station, fill up with fuel, drive from petrol station to post office, tax car, drive home, parkup, select park, apply handbrake, exit car, lock car.

Ah - what you did wrong Dave was drive the car yourself. If you'd let Marina drive it then you'd be at home, warm with a nice cuppa and £270 better off. ;) :D

I got in the car the other day and had a puncture, one expense I could have done without. Tyre was only 6 weeks old :-(

I know what you mean only to well
So far this month 4 new tyres, new rear discs,pads and sensors. MOT is next Tuesday and then I can get it taxed
Cheapest thing I have done this month was the oil change.
