That's great! Until you need to go up a hill or come to a stop. Then it sucks really bad.

Are you sure it was coolant? I had a slight clog in my ac drain and it caused it to run down to the heat shield area when parked facing slightly uphill

Don't worry about it....its closer to $10 US in most of Europe (inc UK)! You still have just about the cheapest fuel in the developed world.....
