Re: recommended fuel grade for petrol HRV

Back in my military days we would use OM15 (hydraulic oil) to clean the engines :shock: made a lot of smoke for a a few minutes but really cleared the combustion chambers, worked best if injected direct via spark plug holes and left to soak overnight. :D

Re: recommended fuel grade for petrol HRV

Out of curiosity I had a look at the premium fuel and when we had a discount offer for supermarket fuel I tried it both solo and while towing the caravan, not an extensive test but as mentioned there was a small benefit from the premium, especially while towing, but I doubt the extra cost would be a...

Socket is rated at 12.5 amps max (fu...

Re: Sensitive sensors

I agree with both of your comments, but honestly the difference in diameter would be barely measurable, I doubt the car system is that accurate, and yes I do a visual external check as a matter of course (life time doing said on aircraft tends to become second nature) my thought was if the system no...

Sensitive sensors

I recently did a wheel swap front to rear to even up wear (and with winter coming have the more tread to the front) and to check there was no adverse driving effects (balance or tracking) took the car for a quick spin.
