Yes. And our other-halves are well known for their method of choosing stuff using cold logic, hard figures, and sound expert advice

Jokes aside, before using Zyklon B, the Nazis actually used the exhaust gasses from lorries' engines (presumably petrol?), however this required loading people up into specially fitted lorries and then driving around for 30 minutes, which was deemed too slow and not meeting the need of dealing with 10m Jews, Gipsies, Gays, Disabled, Mentally-ill, and political opponents.

Interestingly death by CO is far more merciful than death by Zyklon B... though still very macabre either way.

To be fair to Mrs. MJ, the car did tick all other boxes apart from fuel type, and with 7 years warranty I have to concede defeat. Indeed we had no issues with it yet

Vpower would work out cheaper due to lack of packaging and delivery costs.
Doubt it.

Ultra Pure <99% Fuel Cetane Booster Diesel Bug Treatment

They have 25% sales a couple of times a year.

HTH.
