Re: T2 KEF Kerzenheim

When I drove my van back home after picking her up, the fuel hose entering the engine bay was leaking fuel so I had a very lucky escape from a long drive home; the first work I had undertaken on her.

Re: T2 KEF Kerzenheim

The odds of that happening must be small, and the irony! When I was visiting the fire station where my van was stationed I was told that funding is tight; will this station have any problems replacing all the tenders that will be written off?

Re: Petromax

Quite a collection you've got building! You've persuaded me that I must purchase one in the future, however I have some existing commitments before I do; all the van graphics are at the printers and I will post all the details of these in case any one else needs anything as some of this involved art...

Re: Busfest 2014 5-7th September - Emergency VW Display

I was also unable to make it, suffering the same fate as last year as I was caught at work unable to get the time off! :(, however a change of position may well mean more weekends off so the future attendance is looking good for me.

Re: Petromax

Great news, where did you locate the illusive lens in the end?

The Genial looks great, how does this compare price and quality to the Petromax?

Re: Morning!

Good evening John, Enduroline is Tanya's own brand battery, but from a reputable supplier you shouldn't have any issues but my personal choice in a similar size to this would be the Varta LFD75. I was taught that the case size of a battery is relative to the maximum achievable capacity, so when comp...

With regards to my bus, im waiting to get her in the paint shop for some repairs, a colleague owes me a favour and will be changing ...

Re: E10 fueling speculation

John, That's an excellent article that thoroughly explains the issues which is much more extensive than I first thought. I forgot to add to my last post that the irony was the driver of the tanker was also explaining how the fuels were damaging all the rubber seals used to connect up to the transfer...

Re: E10 fueling speculation

John, I spoke to a tanker driver when I was filling up this afternoon at Texaco. He said that the super they supply from Hamble is the same as BP ultimate and is a very good fuel which doesn't currently contain any ethanol, the rest of their fuels are E5 although not advertised. He also said that th...
