Toolbox additions

I know that technically this should go in the Sales section, but I figure if it's in here then the regulars may get first sight of it................ I've been going through my garage having a lockdown tidy up and I've found several items I will never be likely to need again, so it makes sense to of...

30% more fuel for same power as before. But in my case since power rised then maybe +50% fuel consumption on peak power.
Ah that makes more sense. Thank you.
Your initial statement seemed to read more power for same fuel.

Re: Esso Fuel - No Ethanol

Call me a cynic, but I would be taking that with 1/16 of a teaspoonful of NaCL. Martin, Ethanol has a far lower calorific value than petrol: A gallon of gasoline provides one-third more energy than a gallon of ethanol. Blending ethanol and gasoline at a ratio of 85 percent to 15 percent (E85), the ...

Re: Esso Fuel - No Ethanol

In my car E85 fuel gave me aprox. 20% more power than compared to 98E5 fuel. ( I found no pretty much no difference with 99+ maybe 1-2bhb) Seriously? 20%? Even in a stock 3 litre that's an additional 27.6bhp! Just from changing fuel? If that is true, why does anyone bother to spend any money on eng...

Re: Esso Fuel - No Ethanol

Hello and I must say I read this and got excited. Capri got used yesterday and as it was pretty much empty I thought I would take opportunity to brim it with this ethanol free stuff. I noticed at the Esso station though that even the Supreme+99 has an "E5" sticker on the pump, suggesting it has Eth...

Esso Fuel - No Ethanol

Not tried it myself, but I'm told a lot of good things about Esso's new Fuel - Synergy Supreme + 99 RON. For a starter it is apparently ethanol free. It contains 'double detergent additives and a friction modifier'. 99 RON makes it a good match for the old Capri engines and it seems to be selling ab...

Re: key fob not working

I had a similar problem years ago. Didn't realise the alarm had it's own internal battery. That had gone flat.
I got away with reconnecting the battery and leaving it for a couple of days until it recharged the alarm one.
Not sure if that would work for you though?

Re: transmission jack

Don't forget the Burton postage prices - double the order cost, increase it by your age and add the number you first thought of. That's a relief! When I saw 'pbar' in the replies I immediately thought, here we go, he's going to ask someone to crawl under their car again to check a gearbox number or...
