Hame has indeed been achieved.
A collection, not worthy of its own thread space, happened.

It started at dark o'clockDSC_0853.JPG
Wife dropped me off at Dundee station where I boarded a turbostar class 170 (not a reference to its speed).

It was early on Sunday morning so Scottish children were enjoying the usual breakfast fare.

Apologies for the laguna-esque nature of this posting, but I am currently in the field so to speak and my signal is weak.

Slight panic set in when the train took a sharp left and crossed the Tay, heading for Fife. Home of many mentalists and also the wrong direction. DSC_0858.JPG
But apparently this was a diversion due to track works. I used to have similar trouble with the hornby 00.

The train almost fell in the North Sea

..but Lenzie was made and Neil was there to greet me with a welcome coffee.

Neil forced me to strike the pose of AS.

The 93 miles home were interrupted only by a quick splash and dash at Stirling whereupon the eml decided to make an appearance.DSC_0872.JPG

It was needing a wash and has scrubbed up not too bad, although there is still some lichen and moss that will require a bit more elbow grease.

There is a slight hunting at low revs sometimes, which might be related to the eml. I'll get the codes read at some point.

All told, it was another very pleasant AS transaction. Many thanks to Neil and all the ticket buyers.

Plans for this? Who knows. Maybe rag it round an AS trackday. Maybe I should go mad and rat look it.
If anyone needs to borrow, let me know.DSC_0883.JPG

Might be the idle control valve - I have a Corolla T Sport kicking around in my yard which had similar issues until I changed that

I've just been having a google and an internet expert suggested that change of fuel could make a sensitive cat sensor throw a wobbly and illuminate the engine light.

Now, perhaps by coincidence, I had just treated the Toyota to a belly full of BP Ultimate.
Any wise owls on here heard of such a thing?

Worth taking the battery off overnight in the hope that it resets any adaptations it's made for fuel quality?

Without spending on tax or insurance, probably only the allegro. The Honda is away, the omega, Subaru and corolla all have mot but would need a month's tax and some kind of insurance. I took out one day insurance for this and it is taxed but that will change now the v5 has been put in my name.

You could transfer insurance off one of yours though.

Still got the raffle Rover and the Defender but neither are ideal for rattling to work and back for a week or so. I swapped the insurance off the 25 to the ZT as the 25 ran out of MOT! Found out about a week later the bloody ZT MOT had ran out 2 weeks before that :shock:
