Well, sorry, I didn't mean that.
I'd agree with Nona, though, that in the UK we generally tend to go for smaller engine cars. If it's a run-around car for one person to drive to and from work, most would be a 1.4 or a 1.6L. A bigger family car for the school run would be a 1.8 or maybe 2.0L. Above that, the fuel bills and insurance costs mean that you are, to some extent, making a statement about your affluence.

Petrol in the UK varies in price from area to area. Round my way it's currently averaging 86.9p per litre, so about £3.50 a gallon using GG's rough conversion - which is, I think, about $6.25 a gallon. Most of this is tax.

I see you have Renault Clios (plural? lol) in the UK too. But you have the steering wheel on the right! I would crash after a few meters/yards.Emotion: surprise
Here gas prices are very high (about 1.2 euros per liter, 1.56 dollars per liter, 5.8 dollars per gallon, good! LOL, considering 1 euro = 1.3 dollars), there's a lot of traffic, lots of people use public transportation... what else could I say? Ah, the speed limit on freeways is 130 km/h, about 80 miles per hour. You pay to get on freeways, and that's not cheap, just for a change. Emotion: smile

Sure it's common in the whole Europe too but you get bigger engines without any trouble.

By the way, do many parents drive their children to school in the UK?

Hello Nona,

I wonder it this is an idiom and in case that it is, what does it mean? I've got an idea but I am not sure about it!

About the car..maybe you can fix it, can't you?

Thanks in advance!
