Tripping the light fantastic: IS 300h F Sport

firms sells power to all over Europe and America and if you for one, all I can say is sorry.

After it must be very frustrating employed by people who are so shortsighted can’t see beyond what last week, never make any plans for the future.

Let me Over the past month phoned my provider at least six only to be told by that cow who makes the BT woman sound an angel that they are experiencing unusually high of calls.

Well I’m sorry unusual means that an is rare. It doesn’t cover that happens every day of week, otherwise it would be

Sadly they can’t Sorry, we are currently experiencing call levels. To which could add: And as we’re far too to hire any extra staff just have to wait the poor overworked sods wet because they haven’t got to go the toilet.

Meanwhile their are planning another trip to the dealers because their car is two old and due for replacement.

Anyway, what me as odd about all this is why they just supply us with all the we could ever want for to nothing?

Well why not? After if Toyota can do it, why not the electricity companies? enough you’ll have to at least £15,495 for a semi-electric car called the Yaris in the first but you won’t just get a deafening back in return.

The 1.5-litre returns a claimed 76mpg, but with my heavy right I got 60mpg out of it on a 200-mile round to mighty Macclesfield. That’s why only got a 36-litre fuel

“You’re immediately struck by how it is, and so you should be, because most of the it’s using electric

A posh Toyota is called a but you wouldn’t expect that of return from a 33-grand IS 300h, even though also a hybrid — or you?

The amazing Lexus RX 450h I about two weeks ago had a claimed of 45mpg and I got 35mpg easily, it weighing a colossal 2.2 tonnes.

The IS 300h weighs 1.7 tonnes, having all the same refinements, and is quite a big car, yet over a I averaged 50mpg in it and regularly got

How can this be? Well because of its weight the IS 300h hardly its petrol engine, which charges its electric motor. immediately struck by how quiet it is, and so you be, because most of the time using electric power.

You can choose from three driving modes, economy, or sport, but you get so annoyed when the engine cuts in that you most of the time with it on

Oh no, you say as it starts to climb a hill, using my precious petrol.

By the end of the in the super smooth and silent I still had a quarter of a tank despite an utterly unnecessary round trip to the seaside and other long journeys to I had never visited before.

claim that it averages does 125mph and shoots to in 8.3 seconds. Well the first bit is but the other two figures involve petrol, so I wouldn’t know. I travelling in silence.

It truly is a stunning car, built, with a mountain of lots of room inside and a boot too. It’s three feet deep you fold down the rear which extends it to six feet, but the parcel shelf is fixed, so it makes it quite difficult to large loads.

The only that puzzled me is why it’s got a big, 66-litre, fuel which means that it easily do 700 miles on one fill-up, driven carefully it’ll do 800

That’s another thing it teach the electricity companies. Ask it how fuel it’s used and it gives you an answer.

And that be that it’s used a lot than you think.
