Re: E85

Hi,
Yes, up to 10%.

I always add Alcohol to my tank when I see it available cheap.
Never a problem. Helps remove water from fuel.
I really do not worry about E10 in my cars.
Cheers,
Iain.

Re: E85

We've only got E5 and soon to get E10 in the UK ... and E10 is going to cause some older cars problems .. E10 is destructive to some rubber hoses, seals and other important stuff in the fuel system! Fake news as the old US president would say. Question: How much ethanol is in E10 fuel? Cheers, Iain.

Re: E10 Petrol

Hi,
your car will run fine on E10. Most if not all cars will run fine on E10.
It's a lot of hype about nothing.
if you do not run your car a lot it will benefit from E10!
Cheers,
Iain.

Functions of wires on radio 12V plug?

Hi, I have 7 wires on my OEM radio plug. IMG_3415[1].JPG I have eight if you count the extra connector. IMG_3417[1].JPG I know which is Battery, Ignition & ground. What are the other five? I'm guessing Illumination is one of them and somewhere is a form of SWC. What is the OEM stalk control? Che...

Re: How to: Replace drop links

You likely won't get a lot of responses, as you posted under a 6 year old thread about replacing drop links. You haven't said which engine you have, so I've guessed the 1.6. You could try replacing the inlet air pressure/temperature sensor. Also camshaft position sensor. Both are cheap. Hi, I would...

Re: MOT Fail

I expected the disks to last forever on the rear. Minimal work to do and I would never expect them to get as hot as the front. The handbrake requires less force & the first pull is enough. So far. The 20 quid 55Watt driver/35W 6200K HID dip & 36W (3 Amp) Main LED's max glare and little pract...

Hi,
My roof timed out in the program. I needed to connect to CANbus to reset. Bought cheap PP2000 gear.

Looking at the condition of the label you do not have many wet roads. Jealous!

Re: Tyre sizes and clearance

£40 to £50 quid is fine for me. Let me have a look..
The 55 is indeed cheaper. Raising the car 19mm is not for me.
