Really pretty good, actually. IIRC it's a Prins system with Flashlube, it might be a tad undersized though as it drops to petrol if you're at WOT and above 4k RPM.. rest of the time it's entirely unobtrusive :y

That's often the safest way to go with high aspiration LPG setups as you don't often (!) spend much time at WOT in then anyway.  That's what I was thinking for the XJR lpg setup instead of finding space for 2 vaporisors in a crossover configuration to deal with the demand of the SC at WOT.

In the wet is when a RWD becomes worth it, lots of fun ::)

I prefer the BMW over the Skoda in the wet, too. Although I think the proper weapon might be a Subarahhh that might be a sore point still  :-X ;)

You cut deep.....

Ok, I deserve that  ;D

Just driven back from rugby practice and it was still steaming when I booted it.  A funny slight burning smell too, but I guess that must be the exhaust drying out.  I'll wait until I give it a good long drive before I am fully happy with it.

Looks like I'm gunna be a pick-up driver  ???
have you fixed / dried out the engine you washed  :-\

Yup, all working fine although there is still a lot of moisture in the exhaust system which keeps the tailgaters away at least ;D

A good blast at the weekend should sort it out but tomorrow I am testing an Outlander PHEV for 24 hours so it'll ahve to wait until saturday when I go down to Gosport.

Well, I have spoken to all the dealers (VOlvo, Mitsubishi and NIssan) and the financials are compelling.  For a Ltd company with personal usage an LCV is best.  The Navara comes with a 5 year/100k mile warranty, drives as close to a car as a truck can get atm and if the company purchases it then the tax advantages are significant, not to mention the significant discount from the dealer.

What makes me laugh about the female debate is that it is obvious that the doctor is asexual which is one of the letters in the LGBTQA...WTF...IDGAS, but no the problem should be that this incarnation is a female embodiment....?  ???

I dont think they can polish the CGI too much.  The sh!te level of graphics has given it a little charm along the years in that 'It's sh!te but it's British so it's ok' kind of way  ;D

Mine seems to be the exception then.  New build, 5 years old and the driveway is still intact.

You might be on to something there.  I didn't realise the BIK rates for LCVs are so low.  Hmmm, Merc X class, anyone?  ::)

Id buy the Navara (exactly the same car) for several grand less personally. But the ideas sound.

It is less but not that much less on a company lease from what I can see.  I do like the Navara though, I'd have to test drive them both to see which one suits me best.

How about a pick up? Hilux rates aren't too bad... Gets Swmbo ready for the F150 Raptor :D

Thoughts on the XC60 PHEV?

Financials just about work.  Reviews look good. Pretty decent performance when wanted and half decent mpg when charged (I still have the charger attached to the house from the Leaf). Good spec and build quality.  Looks ok.
