    Basically I've managed to travel to work and back, a 25 mile round trip in heavy traffic, with 0 miles left in the tank, when i left my house!

    I eventually made it to a petrol station and ran out of petrol as i was waiting for a free pump! I got lots of laughs as i pushed my car to the pump!

    I was very lucky!

    Bet you was bricking it for the last 5 miles of the journey before it cut out. My mate tried the same in his Alfa 147 2.0 TS, he tried to limp his car to Tesco's whilst it was misfiring just because he had a 5p off a litre voucher, driving past 2 other petrol stations in the process. He finally conked out 1/4mile away on a busy dual carriageway and called me for help! :sos:

    Olly loving the mixes....

    Have you heard of phatbeats.net - I'll be on Sundays 7-9pm.

    Re the petrol... You are so brave to drive on zero miles - I shizzle myself when the car beeps and the dreaded orange petrol like comes on!!
