Survey help! Next hour or so....

Hi guys,

As some of you know I am a researcher by trade, I am sat in a brainstorm for a client at this very minute discussing the issues of driving and fuel usage for people who drive a fair amount of miles for a living (delivery drivers, trades, sales execs etc if I were to generalise) - I would imagine there are some people on here that fall into that category?

If you could answer a few questions (either post a reply here or PM me)

1. How far you drive per day on average as part of your job
2. What do you drive, what do you do
3. Best bit of about driving
4. Worst bits
5. Do you have admin to complete with your job
6. How many times do you fill up per week
7. Where else do you stop off during the day apart from a petrol station
8. Do you use the same place
9. Is filling up a pain
10. What is the biggest pain about filling up
11. Do you use BP, and if so what makes you come back
12. What would make you use BP more
13. What petrol station brand do you use most

Clearly I will incentivise with free rides in the Skyline at any meets ;) but any help greatly appreciated and going direct to a fuel companies strategy! Make a difference!

Cheers VERY much in advance...any responses in the next hour would be great.
