    If it's going to take that long the world will definitely end just as you've finished it so I'm gonna do all the same stuff to second vehicle (Metrocab) today and I haven't even started yet 'cos I've only just got up.

    Try a special system of servicing called
    "maintenance by neglect".

    Basically you don't fix it if it isn't bust, but you pay attention all the time, and as soon as anything needs fixed, you fix it.

    This is how we looked after our old army trucks. We never serviced them to the mileage schedule because they would never have made it that far!

    We had a Scammell wrecker that needed its prop shafts greased every FIFTY miles! What a pain in the arse that was.
