it's appropriate for small vehicles to yield to large ones
Good point, I should start doing this.

Actually, I've found that 18-wheelers tend to yield to passenger cars at four-way stops if it's close, at least around here:  they know it takes longer for them to clear the intersection, so they decide to be nice and let the car go first.
Keep right except to pass.  Yes.  You.

I've driven a number of times in the UK, and driving over there proved not that difficult t.b.h.  Especially motorways were a lot easier than expected. However on a normal crossroads you have to think about turning your car correctly to the left side of the road.

My experience was in a normal continental European car (my own), so I have no experience with driving a rental vehicle over there.
