Yeah and its cute manda! But that would mean you only have about a 30-35 litre tank...Mine needs about 5 litres of fuel just to start up.

Slight exageration, but you get the point lol.

I want a small car too, or a shetland.

I don't know angela...did you watch "Kath and Kym"?
She had a horse and cart ( I mean pumpkin coach for her fairy tale wedding..and look what happened)
I think 300 horse power under the bonnet, in the long run, may be cheaper, than one in the paddock.
I am ashamed of how much petrol we burn each week. I try to stay home and car pool when i do go out, but the boys have to go to work and school.
I think where I live, a sailing boat may be more useful. You'd just have to leave for work at about 2 am and hope the wind was favourable.

PS: had to come back and say , with all the hot air I generate, I may be able to fill my own sails. No worries mate

PS @ your use of the word 'flamin'"
I it.
I used to make earrings for guy, echidnas, goannas and platypus, made out of wire and silver -plated. He displayed them on black card and hand-wrote in silver ink his company name, it always made me laugh..."Very Flamin' Original"
I quit on the animal earrings, could never get the echidna's toes right.
I wouldn't mind betting you have seen some of it for sale at markets.He was the original $2 dummy man. I used to do wire bracelets and rings with little beads on them, made thousands of the things. Must all be lurking in someone's jewelry box, somewhere!!!

lmao @ kath and kym. That show was hilarious. The wedding was even funnier than kym's wedding preparations!

Everyime I hear someone use the word 'flamin' I think of Alf from home and away or ted bullpitt. Leave your money on the fridge. Ahhh Kingswood country. Why dont they bring that gem back to tv?

That is so cool about the jewellry! I dont think I have any, but I am sure I saw them at some stage at our local markets. I love markets!

Ahhh...the joys of living in Brissie, the land of cheap fuel. I filled up my tank at 70c per litre today ladies. You guys are well into the 90s now arent you?

Alf: "thats me flamin wife in there"

*uttered whilst house is in fire

you sydneysiders need to graduate up from those lower class soaps... to something quality... like, i dont know... neighbours?

and as for brisvegas.... the only reason fuel is cheap is cause there is a glut of pauline hanson highly flammable hairspray now being sold as petrol
