Re: Solve this at the source
@James Hughes "No you don't need to own a car that can do 200miles. You get an electric car, then hire something else for the long journeys."
Bugger that, have you driven a hire car? they are awful!!
If you want something half decent, then you spend £300+ a day, add in the hastle of going to fetch it....
For most people its more cost effective to just buy a petrol/diesel car.
