  1. Hi Konrad, Might be worth changing the valve and grommet. I have taken the view that as I intend to the run the car to the bitter end I might as well have it running as well as possible and capitalise on good parts availability from dealer or breaker. Good knowledge on the brake disks. I shall bear that in mind. Happy motoring

  2. I might Matt. My car has a clean exhaust with only the usual brief puff of white smoke in cold damp weather. I think the rubber may not be sealing due to age. The engine has got back most of the smoothness since I re-aligned the exhaust. I also with be cleaning my old disks, because they are 'warped', as is the replacements. On this forum, it has been said that the disks are not actually warped, but are contaminated. I will try and removed this contamination and see if the warp feel disappears. Back on the oil consumption, I will be going to the NEC next Sunday so will see where the oil is blowing and I will see if I need to replace any other seals.

  3. Considering the frontal area of any car, or a slippery prius, the wheel size or tyre width will make very little difference to mpg from wind resistance...but the rolling resistance of the wider tyres on t-spirit models certainly will. Try doing back to back mpg tests with all 4 tyres at 40psi, then at 30psi.....and you`ll see a difference.....and all thats changed is rolling resistance.

  4. And so it begins ....................... All back to normal now. It looks like I can fit a 30ltr tank underneath now I forgot to take a photo after I painted the inside, I painted it in red hammerite to match the car !! Just for reference, the bodywork on the car is 1.2mm steel, I replaced it with 2.3mm steel It looks like I will be getting a 42L LPG tank Max fill of 33.6L - more than the petrol capacity !

  5. Hi Ivan Your work continues to impress me, do you like the idea of working for Bentleys in the UK, you would be a 'natural' as you like perfection. Click on the link below to have a look or copy and paste it if it isn't 'live'. http://www.bentleycareers.com/en/vacancies/search.html Have a good day. Mike.
