>Lets take a 2nd hand car dealer as an example. A car node has a "Fuel

>"Petrol" from a drop down. Now, what happens when he gets in an electric

>And I do not want to have to go in every time and add a new Fuel Type
I'd create a admin settings page for your site in a custom module, allow the
user to define values in a text area, one per line as per the CCK field and
then create function to return these. Use this function in the allowed
values field on the CCK setup. Kind of duplication but lets the user change
the values without being overwhelmed by all of the extra CCK widget/field
settings. Hope this makes sense.
