  1. blimey it must have some range on it. My 9-5 Aero HOT LPG had a 110l tank in the boot and would do 500+ miles on LPG and over 800 mile total range including the fuel tank and that with late 20s MPG

    Kitten kapers

    Was just thinking I haven't seen any updates on this for a while @doug. Did you ever get it all sorted?

  14. some more progress on the Panda today. given how grim the coolant was I decided it needed a good flush before putting the new stuff in. Sadly this meant disturbing the thermostat which was reasonably new according to the receipts from the work @spartacushad done. Being a cheapskate responsible citizen I bought some gasket paper and cut a new gasket so I could keep the original stat once I had hosed out the block. dab of Hylomar blue each side for good measure so fingers crossed it holds. Its a 5.2L capacity but after I have finished bleeding it through I reckon I will have got about 4 liters back in, perhaps a tad more. Seems to run up to temperature ok and heater works well so hoping a few more runs will have it properly bled After the last update changing the RHS mount I have now done the LHS and the gearbox end this probably explains the huge powertrian movement ! Its noticeably different with all 3 mounts done. Before the engine could be rocked with just light finger pressure. now its faily solid and the shunt on power take up/lift off is gone. Given it a longer drive after finding a few liters of E5 in the garage which I bought to clean the LHM filters on the XM back in the days where one could be so carefree with petrol. The new fuel pump really has made a huge difference on the light tip ins when hot. Picks up pretty cleanly now , so I am calling that fixed. However a new issue has come to light, with the throttle starting to stick open so that's the next job on the list.........

  19. that was on here a few weeks ago but didn't sell. someone mentioned it might be a launch press car IIRC I spent the whole of the last auction wondering how I could justify buying it.

  22. had my mum's red 5 door for a few weeks when the Favorit failed to make it past Hull on the FOTU trip. decent enough drive, felt like kind of last of the old school small cars before they got all fat and heavy
  23. might be something I have to think about soon, as the ULEZ extension comes to the next street over from me this month and the XM, Panda and Favorit don't qualify For me it would be a mk2 Escort probably as it was my first car and first love, or if I was to go for something I haven't had before it would be a Kitten, Estelle or Lada
