Re: Cheaper alternatives to Scottoil

EP80 (or 90) is usually a "hypoid" oil, and is therefore incredibly smelly. (I've an old LandRover so have got through gallons of the stuff :roll: )
In my opinion, a very good reason NOT to use it!

Re: Is non-automated traffic enforcement dead?

HedgeHopper ... I have to agree with you. It seems we live on part of the local Test Route: we have a constant supply of learners doing 273-point turns and reversing around our corner, "supervised" by halfwits who seem to be more interested in their phones, or delving into their handbags, than in th...

Re: GASH !

Not nice!.... but at least it looks well-finished, except for that luggage rack(?) - that seems to have been knocked up out of a few lengths of roofing batten!

Re: Bit OTT, but interesting...

Years ago, someone in my 4wd club replaced the centre seat of his old Land Rover with a standard CH radiator, plumbed into the engine cooling system. Apparently it worked well! Looked a bit "Heath Robinson" though ;)

Re: Ethanol Fuel (+ F**k morrisons)

I'd hazard a guess that, whatever the mysterious hobby is, it involves plastic fuel tanks. (Or other fuel system bits).

Re: Ethanol Fuel (+ F**k morrisons)
