  1. My fuel pump decided to wrap it's tits in on the Torpoint Ferry this week.
    Just to cheer me up, can anyone tell me of any where that was an even bigger nightmare?

    Yep, about 15 years ago my engine literally just cut out at 80mph in the fast lane of the M5 near Bristol, with clutch depressed I couldn't go left the middle lane was toppers, slowly ground to a halt while other sensible motorway users continued to undertake at 70-80mph. In the days of few mobile phones it took about half an hour for the cops to arrive by then I had created one of the biggest car parks in Europe :thumright:

    Most embarressing thing? After we pushed it onto the hard shoulder and having called the AA, I thought I would just give it another go, it started first time whilst an angry copper asked me if I had been "pissing about" my reply "yes I often stop in the fast lane of the M5 for a laugh"
