So no longer does my commute consist of reading a paper/book on the train for a hour but now I have to drive 84 miles per day to get to an office via a very congested motorway. At least it's a reverse commute as I'm heading way from London in the morning peak and towards London in evening peak. It can take anywhere from 45 mins to 2 hours to do each leg so I set off at 7AM in the morning as the traffic is tolerable.
it's not quite a Jaguar
The Alfa is holding up quite well as it's over 11 years old and is way past the time for new a cam belt etc. Despite having only a 1.8 four pot, it's not that economical as it's a revvy 16v unit. The cost of a weeks fuel is £90 ($144) . I don't know how that compares as I assume US drivers fill up more as they tend to have less economical motors but I'm sure this is steep...
