Hi from a Newbie

Hi, introducing myself on here so here goes.....

My name is Rob, live in Nottinghamshire, England. I recently sold my pride & joy a 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX. I now have a Toyota Aygo Sport as I needed something cheaper to run. Found this site by chance but glad I did, looks great !

Please feel free to add me as a friend.

Cheers, Rob

Used to have to put in 98 RON or higher fuel. Locally had a choice of either Tesco Momentum or Shell V-Power. V-Power was about 6p per litre more the Momentum. Used to average 25mpg in the Scoob. Wish I had found this place before the Scoob went. Hoping for a bit more MPG from the Aygo !!

Welcome to the Fuelly! I think everywhere around the world people are running into the same problems. For instance I'm in the US, and I purchased a Ford Escape (Maverick in the UK) Hybrid and made my V8 pickup truck a secondary vehicle. I was tired of spending $80/week on fuel. Now I only spend about $40 every week and a half.

Yea but at least your fuel in the US is still cheaper than dirt, it's $10.65 a gallon here now!

Even averaging 40 MPG in my old car was not good enough unfortunately.
