I only used the fog lamps once in my Peugeot 405 before they got smashed in by stones and I haven't bothered to replace them as they would never be used anyway. Fog lights have become a pet hate of mine lately, especially since I'm doing a l...

Re: What MPG figure do you achieve?

Re: New Homepage and request for input
