Anyone achieving greater than 25mpg (petrol) or 35mpg (diesel) from a 3l engine needs to try harder, and stop holding up the traffic ;D

Feels 'light' on torque though.
I suspect, following our current cars, most things seem light on torque ;D

I think the ST220 is the same 3l engine that my mate has in his Morgan? In which case, it does need revs to get it moving properly.

I thought that it was the tensioner pulley that failed  rather than the belt. If you are doing a cam belt change don't cut corners it could cost you a lot of money let alone the grief when the car breaks down.
Not that it matters, but I thought it was the pulley bearings that stiffened, causing the belt to come off and disaster to ensue. I have twice experienced auxiliary belt derailment, which is bad enough but does not destroy the engine.

Your local Highways Dept have probably got too much cash floating around and need to spend it before the accounting year is up.  ::)
Shame the knob jockeys don't send some on improving the roads. Properly.

I reported some potholes (approx. 25 in a 25m stretch) about 3 weeks ago, got notification they had been repaired about a week ago.  Just travelled down that road this morning, they've all started to dig out again, due to the usual half-arsed job.  FFS, even I could fill in a pothole so it would last longer than a week...

The main problem around these parts nowadays is the fact that every household has two cars, and the streets are becoming impassable during the evenings when everyone is at home.
And the new estate round the corner, the 2/3 bed houses have 1 parking slot allocated, and the 4 bed, 2.

So, you'd never get a fire engine through the main roads through the estates ;D

At almost 111 days, you should get out more, too.
I'm going to the tip. I have a shagged plasma television surplus to requirements. :'(

Whole games totally over hyped by the Beeb, as usual.
Claire bloody Balding notwithstanding, if the Games hadn't been shown by UK broadcasters you would be moaning about how unpatriotic they all are...

We may not have won many medals, but at least we turned  up and tried...  ;)

Yes, and we do have 5 medals which is a tremendous achievement when you consider most of the successful teams in these games are full of individuals who are born with skis or snowboards welded to their feet.  Unlike our children who hardly see any snow and ice in any real quantity, the Scandavian, Germanic, Swiss, Americans, etc kids either have to get around on the stuff as soon as they can walk, or they have mountain ranges they can practice on.

That makes one hell of a difference. :y

Well said Lizzie.

Had to smile. The Russians are still cheating re doping. Why on earth an athlete needs drugs to participate in curling is beyond me.

Perhaps it would relieve the tedium of doing housework on ice? ;D

Look at the lease rates for an indication of the residuals...

The cheaper the rates the better the residuals are... traditional company cars being the notable exception as fleets can buy them for significantly less than retail.
