    Loading bay rules

    I received a parking ticket whilst unloading my 1990 250TD which was in a loading bay. It was for being an incorrect type of vehicle. The rules are that only "motor vehicles and trailers constructed for the carriage of goods" are allowed to stop in loading bay. I want to argue that my 1990...

    Are Hybrid mpg and co2 levels fantasy and misleading

    Is it just me ? I'm fed up reading about stella mpg and minuscule co2 emissions on hybrid exec cars, which attract all the relevant benefits of low emission vehicles including full tax allowances for businesses that buy them and low benefit in kind for employees that run them. And yet "real...

    New emission test rules?

    It's generally accepted that the economy test in NEDC does not reflect real road driving conditions and cannot be achieved in real life so you don't need a test to try to reflect that. The test can only be used as a benchmark against other cars. So how about just have a test which measures...

    MOT rules - bit of a nuisance..

    Well the MOT on the C43 runs out at the end of this month. Now, there is not a cat in hell's chance of it passing an MOT as it needs a right dose of welding. This won't happen in time for the MOT end date so I will need to get the car to the 'garage appointment for repair' without an MOT. This...

    Screenwash. I broke the rules.

    A lot of the screenwash on sale these days isn't up to much. I got tired of not being able to see properly through the screen, especially at night on motorways with a high volume of truck traffic which seem to throw up more oily stuff that smears on the screen. So, at the risk of blocking up...

    Wikipedia rules...

    My daughter came into the house saying she'd just seen an interesting old car with numberplate OAD 24 with a winged bonnet badge - could I look it up? I'd noticed that there was an Austin A30/A35 owners' day near our house and recalled the winged Austin badge, so I decided to open the Wikipedia...
