Slightly off-topic, but we were generally healthier during the post-war rationing days and, black marketing aside, it meant fairer shares for all.

I have used PB for quite a while without problem and have a lot of hosted pictures. I think I pay a nominal sum. 30 pa? Mine is still working,
but I shall try your suggestion Zirk. Thanks.  :-*
If your paying them money then you should be fine, thats what they want now, but why do that when you can host them for free on other sites, and annoyingly some are better than others.

My personal experience of PB is, it was quiet good, but has over the years got repeatedly slower and almost unusable on free accounts, not to mention the Ads., I recovered my stuff, as well as leaving it on PB as at the moment for me its still works for hosting, in a round about way, but should the demand fees from me they can go and multiply.

For security I need to move it from PB then. Now all I have to do is find the time.  >:(

One of the "victims" of events in Charlottesville has told reporters that she wont rest until she has driven Trump from office.
Doncha just love those Democrats ::) ;D

Albs, as we are both well aware, democracy and socialism rarely co-exist.

The political spectrum is an almost complete circle.

1. On the far right the Nazis, KKK, White Supremacists who want to return to a feudal system, no freedom of speech or action, no property rights, no independent judiciary, kill those that don't fit their idea of a perfect race and not totally dedicated to the cause and all those that express any independence of thought or deed and are a danger to the state and party, state run everything, absolute obedience and mass pauperism and slavery of the populous except for the chosen ones in the party.

2. On the far left you have communists, Marxists, Maoists and Trotskyists who want to return to a feudal system, no freedom of speech or action, no property rights, no independent judiciary, kill all those who don't fit and not totally dedicated to the cause and all those that express any independence in thought or deed and are a danger to the state and party, state run everything, absolute obedience and mass pauperism and slavery of the populous except for the chosen ones in the party.

The far right and far left hate each other where they are both trying to recruit from the same pool of misfits.

I've no time what-so-ever for 1 or 2 where we should banish these misfits from mainstream society and treat them for what they are. Call me old fashioned, but I like my democracy, freedom of speech, freedom of choice, freedom of economic activity, freedom of markets, all people being treated as equals in society and the eyes of the law, property rights, an independent judiciary, every increasing health, age spans, material and economic wealth and will fight with passion to justify and keep them and so should all of you. Be thankful for living in the West, be thankful for living in one of the freest and wealthy countries on earth, be thankful for what I, you and we as a society have got. :y :y :y

I at times take quite a lot of flak, where I have no time for dictators and despots where everything is about them, I will always fight and oppose them and defend our democracy as it is by far the best system this planet has got. :y :y :y

As usual, I am in absolute agreement with your synopsis Rod :y :y :y

Being a suspicious person, I cannot help but think the latest government statement that next major negotiations will be later in the year is to stall for time until after the conference season. That will no doubt bring a new Tory leader with new party line on softer than soft Brexit. If not then you have got to wonder at the lack of progress on what is the biggest change for the country since WW2 (not the conflict per se but the things like rationing, rebuilding and so on). Tik Tok as Barnier says.

Gave the ProjectMV6 a decent run.

After 2 hours / 100 miles of dual carriageway plus some twisty & hilly bits the average mpg display now reads 22.6 mpg. (an improvement)

Found myself pondering the fact that the AR35 (4L30E) is basically a 3 speed box with overdrive.

There is a big gap between 3rd & 4th which really spoils the experience between 45 & 50mph.

4th gear only comes alive at 80mph+. With cruise set at 70mph the box changes down on most of the uphill gradients. Set it to 80mph and the thing purrs along.
Check the autobox firmware versions, as there may be (partial) cures for that.

4th gear only comes in above about 128mph, unless cruising. Apparently ::)
OK I will check the firmware version :y
My code reader says "system name/engine type GS8211/Y32SE"
My recollection is that GS8211 was the final update so I will just have to drive a bit faster ;D

STFT should react quickly. LTFT reacts much, much slower.

However, if LTFT is that far out, something is badly wrong.  LTFT for an Omega on petrol should never deviate from 0%

That's what I thought. I have run it for the last few days with the scan tool connected on short journeys but wormed up to temp and the LTFT never changes from 7.03. Any suggestions what graph to look at next to diagnose the problem?

Thanks
Is this for the 4 pot in your profile, or a V6. V6 makes it easier to diagnose due to 2 sets of data.

That link was misleading on page 2. On an Omega not on LPG, LTFT should *never* drift from 0% (or 127/128 on non EOBD compliant cars).

The usual reasons you have a LTFT > 0% (ie, running lean, the most common fault) is an airleak in intake systems or exhaust (particularly if pre cat), a suspect MAF, or knackered lamda.

With a V6, due to 2 banks, you can rule out MAF if its only happening on 1 bank.


Get the MAF reading. At idle, a 4 pot should be approx. 12kg/hr, a small V6 about 13kg/hr, and a proper v6 around 14kg/hr.  Additionally, careful check for any unmetered air being able to get into the intake or top end of exhaust.

It is a 4 pot. I will check the MAF reading later and have a good look around the engine. I'll spray some propane gas around the intake joints to see if it gets a response. I'll let you know later what I find.
