Have you checked fault codes ?
make sure  there are NO petrol leaks (tank connection can rust apparently )
and check there is no oil or water in the plug wells

Vauxhalls do overfuel when cold too

Failed on headlight aim and a dicky xenon...

A few minors to boot but nothing unexpected.

So I call that a win :D
that shouldn't  cost much to resolve then  :)

A brick fetishist and a comedian, who knew  ;).
Don't knock "BRICKS"  :o  they're the building blocks of modern ......

well if it passed the emissions we know the HCs where less than 200 ,CO % vol sub 0.03 and Lambda within range of 0.93 to 1.030  :P

good luck with the rest of the test  ;)

Probably suggests the cats are getting 'tired' then :-\

2 tins of Whiskers and a rest by the fire and they will be fine  :P

A generator will run on LPG with a few tweaks ,no need for a car .
it would still cost way to much compared to a natural gas condensing combi @ 90% efficient ,even at todays prices  :(

change the burner jets and adjust the gas valve and a natural gas boiler will run on LPG too .

No doubt Opti has big forests of firewood anyway ,so just some petrol for the chainsaw and log splitter required  :P

Burning climate protesters and extinction rebellion types on an open grate is the only cost effective/efficient  way to heat homes  :D

they all look the same  :(

I'm probably not allowed to say that these days   :-X

for clarity I mean the santa smileys  :P


Mothers decreasing mobility means that she struggles getting in and out of the Barge so need to expedite getting something slightly higher. On a limited budget.

The Trolley (A160L) cost me 400. The Barge cost me 460 plus the Trolley. Or 860.

The Replacement would be the Barge plus 300, aka 1,160, as opposed to the asking price. Simples really.  :D
OK .that makes sense now  :y

My Mum (78) gets in the omega easy enough, I just have to hand her the seatbelt
then put the passenger seat control to  "melt" and the AC heat that side to "inferno"
they I just turn a def un to the screams as she tries to press a brake pedal that isn't there  :P

Dropped me Mum's Astra G in for MOT
passed with no advisories  :)
though I advise myself to take it on a warmer day next year  :D

Had my Omega's traction control light flash at me a few times too this morning  :P
Winter tyres ;)

The Barge sticks like the proverbial pop to a blanket.
I'm looking into winter tyres  :y
got Mrs builder steel wheels with  Bridgestone Blizzark Winter tyres
I have enough 7J steel 15" wheels to put some on ,
but do I go 195/65/15 or buy another set of 16" wheels and match the 225/55/16 size
or just get some summer/winter type tyres as the ice age is now  over  :D
                  I would go for the smaller 15 inch 195 65s they will be better for the snow
Thanks for your input Rae  :)
I've heard a few people say similar
plus side to that is I have 15" wheels already ,so could just get winter tyres fitted to those

internet police or Opti might throw ne in jail  :D
