    Default Ran out of fuel helped by an unknown Forum member

    Today I ran out of fuel on the Ottery offramp of the M5N in Cape Town.... guy with a Ranger towed me to the garage, thanks man, I really appreciate it, you did mention that you are on the forum... so... once again big thank you..... Had to get 2 pupils to the Little Theatre in Cape Town, towed me to the garage by Plumstead High, could toss in some diesel and do what I had to do.

    Always good to hear of acts of kindness... especially when all you usually hear is other acts... Well done, that man

    But someone is going to say it, it might aswell be me, should he not have rather towed you to the fish and chips shop in Mainroad
