What makes you grin? Antidote to grumpy thread

When can you start?

We make seven different lenses to go into a head-up display projector. Lenses are manufactured in batches, due to wanting to spread machine set-up time (3-7 hours versus 20-45 minutes machining time per lens) over as many lenses as possible, whilst still needing to make all seven before Assembly runs out of one type. The 'grand plan' was to reduce batch sizes by from 24 to 14, but manufacture two batches at once, so one set-up covers 28 lenses. Benefit being that Assembly don't have to wait until 24 lenses have been made, but they can start building once the first 14 have been made.

Problem is that as the batches of lenses are also processed at other departments within the company, so we rarely get two batches together, hence almost twice as much time setting up! We've now increased the batch sizes again...

After two back to back return trips to Liverpool airport, doing a brim to brim fuel check and discovering that my Dacia Logan MCV diesel managed to do slightly over 70 mpg. Mainly motorways and at night, but even so. It's a P/H (taxi) so these things matter.

It's been great TBH. Round the doors local work it does around 50 MPG with the above on longer stuff. The adblue consumption seems very low also. A few niggles, trim isn't very robust ( door seals becoming detached with passengers scuffing them with their feet ) and floor covering being thin and fragile, odd position of some switches etc. Am becoming very attached to it though. It does the job and being 'my office' on a daily basis am happy to go to work.

Is it possible to remap it for even greater economy?

My mate wanted a van to move a few things to storage, so I lent him my Vivaro. He left me his Peugeot 507 coupe to use. 

Must say it is comfy, quiet, a real waft barge, but bloody hell it is huge. 2.0 diesel although can hardly hear it running from the inside.

He can keep the van for as long as he wants.

EDIT: Silly boy, it's a 407, as indicated by the exterior badges and the embroided floormats.

I managed Uttoxeter to Aintree this afternoon, and got 34.8 mpg according to the trip computer.  It's never been that high ever. 

The traffic was light, and I toottled along with cruise set at the speed limit or lower.

"Influencer?" My arse!

As much as I like a beige mk2 cavalier with the wrong wheels, I'm not about to be influenced by anyone on social media.

That's the trouble with online reviews. I had a total bellend post a terrible review of my business this week. Reason being  that he didn't 'want' to pay £25 for a part he wanted....therefore I've rubbered his calls looking for it.  Now my  customer service and business is 'appalling' !  I'm just building up the roasting that wanker is going to get!!!!!
