    100k miles of fuel economy data

    Dedication to the pump!!! I get 500 miles per fill of 60 litres, but managed 600 in the last fill as we been on various family days out as well as my 12 mile round trip to work over 9 days, I could get more mpg but I’m heavy footed, mine is 2.5d sport and I’ve never put fuel in it n thought “ffs”

    Halfords discount????

    I’ve never been refused anything yet! Only ever seem to need gear sets replacing in ratchets, and the occasional deep sockets,I once bought an old n rusty and seized 3/8 snap on long ratchet at an auto jumble, presented it to my snap on man, he gave me a brand new superseded version the week after, I did the same with an old 1/2 facom ratchet too , old as the hills didn’t work, presented it to my Indy tool man, week later got a brand new one

    Halfords discount????

    Just thought. If you’re on machine Marts mailing list they have vat free days on all Clarke products, decent quality too, saved a small fortune on a mig welder a few months ago

    Fuel filter replaced in 2016? as it’s now 2years old I’d replace that as a matter of elimination

    Halfords discount????

    Snap on gear doesn’t wear out like the Halfords stuff, it’s ok for the diy mechanic and I’m not knocking it but used every day professionally it just would not last

    Problems with BMW battery

    I replaced my battery with a yuasa a few weeks ago,£94 with trade discount. Top tip, put your receipt in a food bag and gaffer tape it onto the battery, you’ll never lose it then .

    My old girl...

    Well it’s almost ‘run in’ now, Mine hit 170k a few weeks back , owned it for almost 3 n half years and it’s still a pleasure to drive, it’s going to take me another 5 years to get to 200k and I’ve no urge to replace it, we (wife n skids) are off to Bridlington tomorrow, bout 160 mile round trip and I’ve recently run some very impressive fuel additive thru it and I’ll reset my mpg before setting off to see what I can get, I’ve managed 56mpg on previous trips!
