    Happy birthday you old bugger lol

    I don't use the forum much nowadays so does not really bother me too much.

    I spend most my time on the FOC seeing as I now own a Ford focus with a Peugeot engine lol.

    MG with a BMW engine, now a Ford with a Peugeot engine lol seem to have a thing for a car with another make of engine in it these days.

    Will do John. I need to do a bit of hands on car work too - the job list of little things that need doing is growing.

    Now that's very kind of you John, not too bad, trust you're in the pink as well.

    Mind you, you're rather lucky to receive a reply within the week as I'd don't frequent these boards as much nowadays - not been the same since the Canadian takeover.

Think I'll plonk this in here. Might be handy for someone. [Image]


Rate of battery charging.----The main thing is to keep the battery temperature low. ( Around bath water temperature. ) Much hotter than this and the water content will start to get boiled off.

I have a little Satnav, I've had it all my life
It's better than the normal ones, my Satnav is my wife.

"It's sixty miles an hour", it says, "You're riding far too slow !

It tells me when to stop and start, and when to use the brake
And tells me that it's never, ever, safe to overtake.

It tells me when a light is red, and when it goes to green
It seems to know instinctively,...

What have you done to your 75/ZT today?

Well this is for all those folk who have done something today and LOTS of expensive things in the past to keep their cars driving about on the road---------


The cost of driving is really bad, you'll end up twitching or even mad.

To give it up would be a dream but then you wake and start to scream.

Another day, a day in hell. You'd risk the train but what a smell.
