    Can you mix dot 4 and dot 5.1 brake fluid? A Google search gives an inconclusive answer so does anyone know for sure what the answer is? I guess people like to know why such questions are asked. Well, I'd like to change the brake fluid of one of my cars, of course. For other cars in the...

    I have had a few issues with the fuel economy of my C250d Sport manual, since I bought it. However, in a discussion with the dealer principal, he raised the issue of fuel source, which in my case was Sainsbury's. He immediately suggested this might be the source of the problem and pulled out...

    Can I mix 2 sizes of tyre?

    May be an odd question this one? I currently have 4x225/40/18s all round but know the correct size for my W210 is actually 235/40/18, I can't really afford to replace all 4 at once and my rears are getting near renewal time so I am thinking could I run 2x235/40s at the rear with 2x225/40s at the...
