PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR
PRICES TO THE 90p a LITRE RANGE

It's easy to make this happen. Just
forward
this email, and BUY your petrol at Shell, Asda,Tesco, Sainsburys,
Morrisons
Jet etc.

hi darren, funny scratch .....i was told by the ford machanic that other smaller local garages usually sold cheaper quality of petrol which sometimes has water in it........thought this was a load of crap but because ever since i bought the car it never seemed to run right and ford couldnt find anything wrong with it i decided to go just to asda, since ive done this the car seems ok now so its given me something to think about....... scratch

mind you, it cost plenty for them to tell me they didnt know what was wrong with it, £80 just to plug it in to a computer, plus repairs if they found anything............robbery. No

to be honest, i think the big dealers/garages are more likely to rip you than the smaller ones.......nearly every time i get mine back from ford theres something different wrong with it, either a rattle or a squeek etc......... Evil or Very Mad
