Well, yeah...  but...  you don't have NEARLY as far to drive as we do.  If I drove as far in the UK as it takes to see family here, I'd need a
fifty-fathom snorkel and I'd end up in France.

Does give one a new respect for the drivers of those V-12 Jags and Rolls
over there, though.  Buying gas ('scuse me, "petrol") for those shows not
just money, but intestinal fortitude as well.

> True...I have been to the US and the distances are inherently larger. What is
the average distance to work, i.e. the most common journey, however? I'm sure it
isn't 400 miles. I imagine up to 30 miles is more likely, which is the same as
the UK.

> They really dont impress me at all. There is enough *shit* going into the
environment without people driving unnecessarily large-engined cars. Nothing
sounds as good as a V-8, I know, but its about time we started to look ahead.
Cars with engine capacities around 1.2 litres can manage to do 80MPH all day
long - is there a need to go any faster?
