There are so many things we take for granted. Take our automobiles, for instance. How they come to life with the turn of a key or the press of a button! How the entire internal mechanism works to keep the car going, or how gear shifts and braking works. How we pay through our noses for the convenience of a car – the frequent trips to the petrol pump, the maintenance and service charges. (And I haven’t counted the expensive disco lights, a music system, modern gadgets, or other decorative car accessories!)
Although the context of today’s article is european, we might just learn a lot of new things about our ‘old’ petrol car in terms of its working, and cost economics.
