    Try some of this over redex , it won’t break the bank, and adds cetane to the diesel turning it into the premium stuff :D

    My brother bought an extravagantly beautiful old car some years ago. His neighbour's comment, 'Ah, I see you've bought yourself something to polish.'

    I enjoy cleaning my car when the weather is okay. I'm happy to let others do it when winter is punishing.

    Neither will I, the car washes I use are all insured, are VAT registered pay business rates as well as income tax and pensions. They are also insured and wash ~10,000,000 cars per year in the UK.

    Your more likely to be contributing to tax avoidance when you go for a coffee...

    I use Momentum-99. Have done for a good many years now. I did give Shell V-Power a go for a few weeks but to be honest, other than the price I felt no benefit. Then the nearest station closed so stopped going as now the closest one is over 6 miles away, Tesco, 1 mile.
    At the moment Momentum-99 is £1.28.9/lt and normal Unleaded £124.9/lt.

    The only real noticeable difference between the Unleaded and Premium is an improved economy, which as far as I'm concerned is more important than performance!

    Fixed non functioning PSE pump on r230 (blown fuse). Also found the boot key doesn't work (lock spins round and round). Fixed the fuse and found no soft lock any more even though pump works. Cause broken was a broken boot latch where mechanical linkage attaches (which also explains the metal key not working). Also cured SBC "Service Brake - Visit workshop" message. Next week will source some brushes for the motor and plan to do a refurb.

    Installed a new o-ring for the distributor dust cover. Changed the distributor and rotor arm to a new one as car was suffering from starting issues. Changed the M104 top engine block spark plug cover to a newer used one. [​IMG]
