Much to my sorrow, I can beat that. The same fuel here costs nearly $4.20
per US gallon.
I wish I could wave a magic magnet and save some money.

By the way - a quick Jeep question or 2:

I have the U-shaped blackout lamp on my '43 jeep, as opposed to the
horseshoe-shaped one.
Q1: Most pictures I've seen show the horseshoe-shaped lamp. Are the U
shapes rarer, or am I looking at the wrong pictures?!
Q2: There are 4 or 5 regularly spaced holes in the U-band - can anyone tell
me what they're for?

Thanks everyone and regards from the country with (even more) expensive fuel.
(Is it too early to say "Happy Christmas"?)
