A Full Tank of Gas for Less Than $10.

Meet the man with Britain's lowest fuel bill as he drives the world's smallest car, which costs just $9 (Cnd) to fill up.

Alex Orchin, the 5ft 11ins car enthusiast can be seen driving around in his tiny 53 inch long, 39 inch wide and 39 inch high car with a 5 litre gas tank. 

Alex, and eccentric 31 year old avid motoring collector loves driving around in his tiny three-wheeler.

Last year he drove the length of the UK in the car, which has a top speed of just 23mph.

Alex got fixated on this idea of having a P50 just because it was so tiny, but when he saw an original price tag of $131,000, the idea was killed.

Then about 4 years ago he bought one of the newer ones from the Isle of Man as the second owner. He says the car always get attention - it is quite staggering because to Alex, it's just a tiny car.

It much smaller than it appears. You can fit a shopping bag down the left of the car by the handbrake, but nothing else. 

The vehicle was built in 2017, but it based on the original design from the first production models in the 1960's, and in 2010 the model was named the smallest production car ever built in the book of Guinness World Records.

Alex said, "I 've owned a lot of cars and none of them get as much attention as this one. Normally if I pull up in a Morris Minor, it is car  people and enthusiasts that want to come and talk to me. But my Peel P50 attracts absolutely everyone, including people who  aren't interested in cars. They think it's hilarious and children love it! Especially under-ten-year-olds.
