It's just light snow forecast around here (Sheffield) so I've turned out in my car rather than pinching my wife's FWD Touran. Just took it steady on the side roads this morning and switched to Eco Pro so no unnecessary revving and the auto box choosing a higher gear whenever possible. Seems to work well.

And obviously there is proper snow chaos in many parts of the UK today but anyone would think the world was going to end. Around here there was virtual panic buying at petrol stations and supermarkets yesterday. I do wonder if some people have a basic grasp of geography. A red warning of snow in the south west doesn't mean south west Sheffield. Totley isn't going to look like something from The Day After Tomorrow. And it's Welsh Wales not Wales near Swallownest.
