    Should my next car be 280bhp or 503bhp?
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    I am for the extra horse power, not necessarily for top speed, but it comes in very useful for over taking

    I was in the UK last week, drove from Gatwick to central London and then to the FoD.

    I gotta say, the UK is becoming one full time traffic jam.

    It seems, no matter what time of day, no matter what day, there were congested motorways.

    My conclusion is obviously, those same old motorways which have been there for the last 40 years don't have the bandwidth/capacity for the number of cars

    And as public transport in the UK will never be invested in, and therefore never seduce people away from the motor car, then the only way will be to add more lanes to the main motorway arteries

    I had to laugh, driving down the M4 to the west country and the FoD, I was surprised and taken aback to see one of those old Intercity 125 diesel locomotives still in use !!!! How old are those things ? and the line on the welsh side is still not even electrified

    Where are we ?

    Shouldn't we be using standard EU metric units for power, if we're ... Ah, no, as you were.

    Well, my choice is either a 2l or a 2.9l engine. Petrol is 116.9p per litre.

    If I wanted to use the EU standard units, I'd talk in watts.
    If I wanted to use the SI standard units, it's also watts. That's the global standard and is named after a Scotsman.
    So, much as you'd like to bash the EU (as ever and at every opportunity), you'd look as big an idiot as usual for doing so.

    Perhaps you'd prefer we used the FFF system?

    oh yes, the price of petrol

    on the mainland most of the west and central European countries are paying the equivalent of 1eur at the pump for a litre of diesel

    remind me how much they were charging last week at membury services
