    I would say the NHS, but lots of funding for that comes from the sale of cigarettes.

    Philth you obvously have a very polarised and incorrect of what happens to real Asylum seekers.

    Micb goes Off Topic for a sec........

    Our almost none of our taxes go to people who seek political Asylum.

    Asylum-seekers are totaly mistreated here, people who seek asylum come from a country that is at war, they have been forced out of their home/country and need proctection and help.

    What do we do, we don't help them we lock them up in a detention center (yes they are like a consentration camp and the guards only know one communication method; the use of a baton) our socaty have huge prejudices against them because of crappy news papers slamming BS storys to the public.

    A few facts:

    The number of refugees that aply to Brittan each year is a tiny 0.15 percent of the population!!!!!

    Britan is not over crowded, nearly 60 million people live here and the birth rate is falling.

    There are 753,188 empty homes in Brittain according to the governments own figures.

    Immigrant workers contribute 2.5 billion a year to the economy.(that is no small thing)

    People who seek Asylum are not allowed to work here untill they get refugee status which is very hard to do.

    I have been trying to drive more fuel efficently recently, I find it hard to do though, the car feels good when accelerating.

    I had a bit of fun the other day I was driving to pick up my brother, I got to on to a two lane one way system, to my left there was this quite old but good condition VW Golf GTI, I could see he wanted a bit of fun so I floored third gear, pulled up to 52 dropped the Volvo into 4th and continued accelerating, surprisingly he was having a hard time passing me, he eventually did pass me but as we were getting closer to traffic his lane had to slow, luckly mine was clear so I nipped past him and gave him a nod.

    Just filled up yesterday - last tank worked out at 47.5mpg. Combination of long but relatively slow journeys (55-60mph), and next to no city driving.

    oo...according to some rough figures :

    constant 30mph = 42.6mpg
    constant 40mph = 41.5mpg
    constant 50mph = 35.6mpg
    constant 60mph = 31.4mpg
    constant 70mph = 27.3mpg
    constant 80mph = 25.3mpg
    constant 90mph = 22.2mpg

    On the track = 19-23mpg (average 60-120mph)

    That's a two litre 16v SOHC engine with twin carbs

    it's the dolomite sprint engine - first 16v production engine in a British saloon :)

    16 valves all running off a single cam. Really boosted power, but without the complication of 2 cams (obviously :) )

    That's a nifty valvetrain :)

    I really don't know the fuel consumption of my R/C car, but assume it's pretty low, seeing as it weighs like 2kg :p
