My car does 60mpg on the motorway, probably more like 70mpg on the 50mph road I'll be using. So it'll cost me less in fuel, and be much, much quicker than using the bus. Especially as I live about 1.5 miles from the nearest bus stop.
My new job is on the way to my partner's job, so we'll be able to car share 3 days a week, saving even more money
Well done!! I'd hate to think I was starting out on a work career these days. In my early days it was really easy to say "Don't like this job", pack it in and move on. Even left one job for another, didn't like the new one so went back to my old one!!
Hope it all works out for you and you have a long and happy career.
alan14. Yes congratulations also. And may you and your lady friend have many more Happy Christmasses to come.
Sounds like good mileage from that car of yours. What make and model is it? I've got a little VW up! and that is doing about sixty to the gallon at the moment on all sorts of different routes. I imagine if I could get on a motorway at night and stick at fifty mph, I could up the average to maybe seventy.
