things you dont see very often...

Some things just can't be placed elsewhere. Have you been speeding and got fined? Or spotted a nice new Volvo on the web somewhere? All non-480 messages can be posted in this part of the board.

Ha!

In Poland in '80 we had a lot of problems with buying petrol. Once upon a time, my dad saw a guy which filled tank in old Skoda 120. The counter on the distributor showed 120 liters! In this case model of car was consistent with the size of the tank :lol: Of course, big petrol tank was a joyful creativity of the Skoda owner :wink:

well, i already managed to get over 63litres in the 480, without filling it up by force.
Our E-class got a 80litre tank aswell, a few months ago i managed to get about 78litres, well over 110€. :angry:

Well, everytime i'm refueling it feels exactly like that.... :x
