The chap in the garage said that too, RS.
I queried the price becuase it seemed a lot dearer than where my son goes at Halford's.
I believe Halfords were £40 for a top up, or £50 if you wanted a clean and refill.
At Fiat they want £79! He told me it was because they were using the new gases and they were a lot dearer to buy.
The big service this year is £199.
I am wondering whether to cancel it and shop around.
Thanks very much for your opinions and prices everyone, much appreciated.
