Perfect candidate for Electric vehicle. No oil, no fuel, no coolant to ever worry about.

I borrowed the 40w. Launch model Leaf (for a Day) which has a range of around 240 miles, and I took it on a 104 mile each way trip down the the M4 to Cardiff , and back, and just to be safe, I gave it a short 45 minute boost /top up charge at Magor Services , on the way back.

As I understand it, If you buy a Leaf, but then need a car for a longer journey, Nissan guarantee to lend you a petrol or diesel car, for up to 14 day’s, free of charge during the first 3 years .

I think that electric is the future, but it will take a few years yet for everyone to get on board, and in the meantime i will enjoy 4 cylinders of VW?

Until it becomes 3 unexpectedly as mine used to, due to a design fault... :-(

Electric is teh way to go for short runs especially if in built up areas.
Diesel is a big no, little point in LPG as by the time you reach change over temp your likely to be switching off and the LPG system works best when fully hot. That leaves you with running petrol or going for an electric car.


Electric is now making much more sense for many cars users. As most housholds now have two cars it makes huge sense to go electric if one of the cars is normally used for short runs
