Driving with the Fuel Light On

A new study has revealed that one in six drivers broke down in their cars last year due to running out of petrol – A number which has trebled since the last review in 2011.

The cause for this rise in cars running on empty is due to drivers adopting a dangerous “devil-may-care” attitude to driving with the fuel light on – An issue in itself which is attributed to soaring fuel costs.

In response to the crisis, supermarkets that provide fuel are now engaging in a Bank Holiday fuel war, in a competition to corner the market of drivers embarking on weekends away and needing to top up beforehand.

Safe driving from Britannia!
