Re: Compare fuel prices in your area

Petrol is currently at £1.09 in the supermarkets and up to 12p more elsewhere. Pays to shop around. AHH those were the days. Before wars and Covid.....Not quite as good as 79p a litre in 2003 though! I can remember 4 shillings and 6 pence a gallon (approximately 5p a litre) in late 1960s. Leaded pe...

Re: Your previous cars...

There's some quality cars on your list Ron240. The Austin A40 which started my list was 1951 vintage. It cost £45. I think the Morris Minor was 1954 so wasn't split screen. It cost £90. These were really basic cars. No heaters, no radios. Not much at all. Although owning a car in those days was fun...

Re: Fuel light bingo

Personally I like to know how much beyond they go so that I'm not forced into an expensive "panic" refuel when I could have made it to the cheaper petrol station a few miles on. If you find yourself in a 'panic refuel' situation then this is bad planning and entirely of your own making. I...

Re: Aircon - regas or leak?

The rear discs they fitted to my 70 plate were garbage! Rusted and pitted after 4k and then changed as a goodwill gesture. Replacements have done 19k without issue. As for the air-con - we always leave ours on when we drive. Evidently it stops the joints from drying out and leaking. My wife’s 2010 ...

Re: Your previous cars...

Is it the same as what it was 3 years ago? :) No, my current Puma is not on the list. Trying to drum up conversation as to what other members have been driving. As Sparks says, a lot of the original posters have moved on. Yes thats fair enough, and trying to drum up conversation is a good thing. :)...

I haven't checked to see if the ST Line X 155 is available with an auto?
I'm sure the 155 is only available with the auto box. Vignale has been dropped.
