Driving me crazy!

Still trying to, at the last minute, decide what is the best way to resolve the mini issue. I have blown £650 on a car which doesn’t work. I have been offered £125 for it scrap value. It’s currently in Luton (40 miles) and I am unable to drive it that far, it will likely not go more than 5 miles and driving with a damaged engine really isn’t overly sensible. If I get it back to Northampton I can possibly put it on eBay and make more than £125 if I get lucky. 

My plan at the moment is to drive it to the M1 and stop either ASAP or maybe at Toddington Services. I am quite convinced that if I turn it off it won’t start again. There I could potentially blag the breakdown service into bringing it home on the back of a truck. It might not make it to the M1 though, even though it’s only a couple of miles to where there is a hard shoulder and 4.5 miles to Toddington. If that is the case, we won’t be classed as an urgent call and the mechanic might just get it going and send us on our way telling us to call back when it breaks down again. (worst option),

It might, of course, blow up, that’s rather drastic but, I got to get it back home.

Now, I hear tell of products which get poured into the tank which can seal a head gasket failure. For about £40-50 that might be worth it. If it works I could sell the car as a runner and make more money, if it doesn’t, I’ve just chucked more good money at the car for no good reason. I honestly do not know what to do for the best.
