    In the last 2 weeks I've spent about £140 so about £70 a week on PETROL . I usually spend about £70 a week petrol sometimes more.





    How much do you think you've spend in the last week on petrol/diesel?

















    I don't work but get DLA and ESA because I genuinely need it, I drive because I can't face other people sometimes and having a car does that

    On a £40 diesel tank, probably £15 every 2 weeks. Don't use my car too often for long hauls these days (filler)

    why do you even have a car then if you never use it ? £15 you use every 2 weeks I use in a day easily everyday

    I don't get the bottom statement? You drive because you can't face other people? Does that mean you don't like public transport?

    I spend about £20 a week. That gets me to work and back 5 times a week. To the gym and back 3 times a week. And any trips to the supermarket etc (maybe 1 or 2 times a week)

    I dunno, maybe to use to carry Building equipment from A to B? Large shopping from Tesco? ... £15 fills just over a quarter of the tank, and that gets me quite far.

    And I didn't say "never" use, you just pt words into my month ... I said I "barely" use it at the moment -_-

    I put £35 in my tank last week, and I have approximately half of it left in my tank. I will put in another £20 next week. I drive to work every day and also out of town as I live in a village, and my family live in towns.
