Other Owners’ Running Costs…

By April 9, 2019 News Story

In the days when almost all owners kept a log of the cost of running their vehicles, comparing your motoring costs with that of another with an identical car was sure to be a tempting proposition. Morris Motors capitalised on this phenomenon in 1933 by publishing a booklet entitled Other Owners’ Running Costs where extracts from these logs were published in order to favourably illustrate the economy of their products. The booklet is well illustrated with tables, diagrams and photographs, many of which show the Minor. Can you get 50 mpg from your 1932 Two-seater? Huge thanks to Ken Martin for making the booklet available for scanning which can now be found on The Useful Page within the Member’s Area of the website.
