Six miles to the nearest shop, that sort of thing?
It is brilliant.
Plenty of places around here that are several miles from any sort of decent shop, railway station, bus route or taxi service. A car is the only practical option.
My weekly shopping run is a 100 mile round trip.
I can vouch for that. I should have gone to my cats' vet, rather than up the road to a GP - she did a better job than the GP.
I occasionally get verbal warnings on my motorbike's MOT, the chap I take it to knows that there's no point putting an advisory on as he just hands me a set of brake pads with the MOT certificate and tells me to fit them by the end of the week, job done, the pad has enough above minimum wear to pass but it does need changing soon.
I go home and change them.
My dad had a couple of XJ6’s, first a mk1 2.8 litre and then a mk2 4.2 litre, and iirc they had 2 x 12 gallon tanks. Filling up took a while.
