I assume the battery is in the boot?
It should be possible to partially power the vehicle via the cigar lighter or socket if you don't want to dirty your hands. In theory it could be possible to charge the vehicle battery that way (trickle charging with precautions).

It should be possible to access main battery points for jump starting in the engine compartment if you have a rough idea of what you are doing. Some manufacturers provide a facility but the starter motor is where the main battery cable terminates.

Probably a matter of age and poor to mediocre maintenance.

Just about anything can affect fuel consumption from the choice of tyres, the wheel alignment and tyre pressures, one or more rubbing brakes to the amount of unnecessary weight that might be being carried under the seats or in the luggage space, even a build up of mud in the mudguards has an effect and of course a fuel leak is quite possible.

By the time a car has reached 18 years old, unless things have been attended to in the past, you can expect tired sensors, increased exhaust back pressure, poor fuel pressures and injector spray patterns and it would be an excellent idea to ensure the engine settings are correct.

There are lots of things to check but before you begin it is best to bring "using a lot of gas" to a number of miles per gallon or litre so you can prove you are making improvements.

Finally, never forget the component most responsible for excess fuel consumption is the nut holding the steering wheel...

No, key cutting will not cause any damage to the original. In the key cutting process, the only key being "cut" is the blank that will become your new key. The blank can come out of the machine broken or useless, but the machine won't suffer any damage.

The main reason being that the original doesn't even get close to the metal blade. The original key is only necessary as a guide for the copy. The process of copying a key is similar to tracing the lines of a drawing, except that clever design is used to keep the original away from the blade. Which is achieved through holding the keys in two different vices that move parallel to each other.

So you can get key cutting Halifax on the same key as much as you want. Click here if you are looking for key cutting in the Halifax area.
