  1. I have not had a company car since 2005. I did use a car working for The Tudor Group from the 18th August 2017 for 3 weeks. I did not use the vehicle personally. I have used my own vehicle for all job since 2005. I am currently working through a recruitment agency and I am travelling 90 miles per day with no fuel allowance.
