I mean, he's also killing his throwout bearing, but plenty of people drive that way.

These are the same people you see rocking back & forward in the clutch on a hill rather than just applying the brakes

Yes....although some of this may be down to 'lady drivers' who have trouble selecting a gear once stopped.

I'm just not convinced stop/start saves petrol.......instead putting extra load on the electrical system.

Stop/start should go in Room 101, along with bankers, and feminists with excessively hairy pits and bush.

Agreed!  :y

A mate can't help himself at auctions etc & bought a load of stuff blind. In it is this .....



No idea what it is. It sits on two suckers and the 'eye' is on a gimbal inside.

Cheers  :)

..... I have had a similar afternoon dealing with a payroll provider. It used to be simple when the payroll provider was part of the same local authority that ran the school but, of course, it's all been farmed out to private companies now, all in the name of economy efficiency.
Like pulling teeth, except the tooth is still there even after all the pain.

Our payroll & some of Anti-personnel has been farmed out to India ..... so everything from days-in-lieu to wages has to be emailed to someone that has only a basic grasp of English  >:( >:(

Do they do the needful and revert immediately, though?*


*Will make sense to anyone who has ever dealt with IT in India..

You've lost me then .....  :-\

Know that stretch of road very well & is a very dodgy junction at the best of times.

As above we don't have the facts, but a bloke in Phil's position has no need to drive on the public roads ..... he's miles of his own private land he could drive on & use (probably) one of many possible chauffeurs if he wanted to go anywhere proper.

Years ago, the driver's mirror on my Omega would move to its setting on the memory button, however if I pressed it again, the mirror would move again to another position. Cleaning up the contacts at various plugs sorted it.
