You know something's not quite right when diesel purports to be £1.60 per gallon.
When was fuel last sold by the gallon? We seem somehow to have gone metric when it comes to filling up. How did that happen? Did no-one kick up a fuss?

Hey - we must make sure that if there's a coming together of the EA and BW in the future we stick to miles and mph.)
