I'm not too happy with the Licencing Dept (the real one). As most of you know, we now reside in the Kingdom Of TB. I have changed my address online or verbally with all the utility companies, South Northants Council, etc, etc, etc. All free of charge. Oh no, not the TV licencing...they charged me 16 !!!!!!!!

is there not still such a thing as a motor fuse? ie it allows a shed load of amps for the initial start up of the motor but will blow if the motor starts to pull a high current in use
most big motors have start capacitors ,or starter relays etc ,HRC fuse links are outdated and used on domestic portable appliances/ stuff

fuses will take double the rating for so long before blowing ,some will happily glow away for half an hour before calling time

I could find a informative video if anyone is interested  ;D

I suspect many OOFers still have wylex rewirable fuses in t'lectric cupboard  :-X
It's a bugger when they blow in the dark and your wife has run out of candles.

If 3.2 blows up tomorrow, I really must get a V8 before big engines are locked down for your average driver.

Yesterday whilst outside working on the elite I noticed a Dvla clamper man putting one on a valeters van parked on the corner of the road. Out of interest I looked up the reg. on the net and it was mote'd on 9/10/18 but it said not taxed (not sorn'd) and get this, was last taxed till April 2017. Surely it should have flagged up before now and had a fine issued.

Committee of MP's want sale of new fossil fueled car ban brought forward 8 years to 2032.

UK currently uses about 53Gwh of electricity per day.

We use about 1,559,000 barrels of oil per day where around 70% (USA percentage) is used by motor vehicles and there are on average 1,700kwh of energy in a barrel of oil. So in this new era of electric cars we will be using 1,559,000 x 0.7 x 1,700,000Wh = 1,855,000,000,000wh or 1855Gwh with our current peak generating capacity of about 60Gwh, so current generating capacity is 1/31 of what is going to be required in 25 years time, so nothing to see here, no problems with coping with the extra demand, oh no. :o :o :o

In 25 years time almost all fossil fueled cars will have be remanufactured into beans cans. With UK's impressively fast planning and infrastructure building record and power companies being reluctant to invest in new generating capacity, everything should be just fine here, so nothing to worry about. :o :o :o
