Inter shitty collection

Recommended Posts

Just realised I posted this in the open forum. Silly me...

 

Waking with the familiar excitement. Getting on a train with a one way ticket and a bag of food. Rain soaked cityscape giving way to muddy vistas, the blue-grey morning light revealing huddles of new lambs, still bare trees and affordable housing. It can only mean one thing, a car collection!

Currently heading due north, being moved for the first and last time today by a V12 engine.

It’s all gone. Clues, hmm.

It’s the first car bought for purely financial reasons, as I’ll be doing a fair few more miles from next week and economy will be a factor. Been using my Elgrand for commuting and it’s a lovely old thing but 23mpg is losing its novelty, even using veg oil.

So the brief was:

50+mpg

Vegetarian

£30 tax

Which narrows it down somewhat

Small yes, but less French. Wish it was a 106 but afaik they never snuck under the £30 tax threshold

I don't think I would risk putting veg oil in anything that is in the 30 quid tax bracket

There is one car, as far as I know, that won’t have an issue with it

Like a school trip, lunch will be demolished by 8amattachicon.gifD3514CFF-7CFC-4B1A-A1B4-18FCC5F82C5E.jpeg

Good work on maximising your value on the £3 Meal Deal, I thought I was the only one who had those Naked veggie milkshake things just because it's the most expensive drink, hence biggest discount*. Hope you got the privies T crisps too.

The only £30 tax thing I've had was a 2.1 twin turbo Merc that allegedly made over 200 bhp , does that mean if I'd rum it on chip pan waste everything would have been hunky-dory?

My sentiments exactly on the meal deal. Out of shot was a pack of fridge raiders chosen because they are the most expensive snack.

Arse would be nipping a bit putting veg in a merc CDI or D4D Yaris, this is much more towards a tractor in terms of its propulsion device

I too would be interested to know if that will happily run on vegoil. If it turns out to be the case I will bear it in mind for the future, if my 190D ever gives up the ghost.

There are numerous sources of knowledge online that swear by the sdi for vegetarianism. Funny a 190d was mentioned, I have one of them but a bit of quick maths on an envelope put a lupo much cheaper overall. Obviously the merc has a style that can’t be matched by many things but for once I’m trying to be sensible.

The girl I bought it off was asking what I was gonna call it, I said it’s not something I’ve ever done but Mingebag quote suits it.

64.1 mpg on the way home, I think that can probably be improved with a few tweaks and improving how I drive it
