    So what?

    You apply for a job and you accept it on the terms offered, 25 miles is nowt compared to some.

    When I was at school the Dad of a lad in our form traveled to London daily to get to work at his expense.

    We live in Cheshire BTW!  :eek:

    Or put another way, if the firm said right **** it, U buy your own Car, Tax it, insure it, maintain it & fuel it to travel to work, or, carry on using our Van (Tax & insured and maintained for free) and you just pay Diesel?

    I know which I'd pick alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll day long!

    Tetley, If they are sending you in their van to a job 25 miles away, they have to pay for the fuel. If you live a few miles away from where you work, then park the van at work at the end of the day and pick it up there in the morning. They'll soon get the message. Lets say you start work at eight in the morning,, would they rather you were starting this job 25 miles away at eight o clock or picking up the van from base at eight o clock?.
    There's more than one way to skin a rabbit. Leave the van at work for a few weeks and see what they say.;)

    BTW, the shopfitting company I used to work for paid 40p per mile in allowances (covered fuel , mileage and wear and tear, but this was for our own vehicles)
