Sorry Philip but I have to relate this story! Off to Sun City this afternoon for a couple of days - Pip very kindly says I can use his car because it has more boot room and with luggage for 3 ladies for a couple of days PLUS all the wine .... I needed more space than my little Polo was prepared to offer! Pack up this morning and head on my way - NO PETROL! So I pull off at a little garage near the Waterfront and fill up! NO OIL! To make my day, the petrol attendant unscrews the cap and the top comes off leaving the bottom tightly turned and no way to get the oil in!!! To cut a long story short, the manager came out with a pair of plyers, opens the cap, puts in the oil and closes with the plyers again! Cap will have to be replaced! Luckily its going in for a service next week!
