The last serious problem in, I think, '99 cost me almost £1,200.00.

The fuel stations were all dry by then.

It happened that a company, with whom I had a good relationship, had a deal with their
filling station (they had about a dozen vans) to hold back fuel for them.

I was given an introduction and I filled two ten gallon containers with diesel.

Very soon after the car developed a serious problem and ground to a halt.

I was told it was water in the fuel and needed a new injection system.

It was either water in the containers, that I wasn't aware of or, I think more likely,
in the filling station tanks as, if their was any in the containers, there wasn't enough to see!

Our man in Cyprus

Is there a favourite place for British weddings ?

We're going to one over there but haven't found out where it is yet.
Report madsimon March 27, 2012 4:12 PM BST
cyprus cannot be that big surely -just enquire of a local when you get there

I haven't a clue I'm afraid. Not that I'm aware of.

Why don't you do the same as anyone else would do and ask the people involved?

Maybe they are hoping you don't turn up!

Or do as I just did and Google "Weddings in Cyprus" and take your pick!

I think it's a bit off not telling you if you are Best Man! Laugh
