Matt looking at your gaslog if the driving situation has not changed your only driving 300 mile a month so that's only 3600 miles a year. I wouldn't worry so much about FE even if there was a 30 mpg difference your looking at 350 buck a year. Just find a solid reliable car that you don't have to worry about or tinker with so you can spend your time productively and drive it for 3-5 years and save your cash. There will be plenty of time to get back into owning a car that requires tinkering with all the time. Just my 2 cents.

Good thing the VX is a solid reliable car, so you can have the fuel economy and a reliable drive that is affordable in one go.
And hey, as one of the people powering this site Matt needs something along the lines of good fuel economy I also hate seeing these VX's end up in the hands of tuners!

The gaslog is misleading. I keep MEANING to make entries, but I also keep forgetting.

That looks like a great deal if it is as rust-free as it looks!

- too funny.

Ditch the aftermarket. Nobody needs to tell you they're probably heavier than the OEM wheels/tires and will have more rolling & aero resistance.

Plus it'll be harder to fit rear skirts around them. Right? Right?
