  1. There was a time when I could go to our local office and receive a professional response. I now have to write to Swansea when I will invariably wait many weeks for a response. You may have a different opinion of the DVLA if you had as much hassle as I have in recent years. I am still waiting for a replacement driving licence that was requested almost two months ago . . . Service? Pha! That went out years ago with the introduction of the centralised office in Swansea. One point of contact means that they can hold the country to ransom at the drop of a hat. I therefore repeat that I hold the DVLA office in very low esteem, and if there were an alternative, I most certainly would have nothing to do with the Swansea office again.
  2. I tend to agree with you LE however I felt the immediate impact on both motorists pockets and the environment was worth mentioning in order to maintain a balance in the discussion. Not all change is necessarily positive in overall.
  3. While I totally understand and agree with the principle of reducing our carbon footprint, I am not convinced that the change to E10 fuel is necessarily the best approach overall for petrol powered cars. Since the change to E10 fuel (in place of E5) the average fuel consumption of one of our vehicles has now dropped from 31mpg to 24.5mpg and it is also interesting to note that the only UK refinery for the bio-additive has closed and the environmental costs of shipping additives from other parts of the world negates any environmental benefit. So not only are we now running less efficient vehicles, we may not improve our carbon footprint either, and we are paying more at the pump for both E10 compatible engines (typically 3p/ltr) and excessively more (I am paying 15p/ltr) for engines that require E5 fuel. See my earlier link.
  4. 2seaside, I took the decision back in the 1970s NOT to buy another newspaper because of the biased nature of much of the reporting, and have kept to that decision. Steamdrivenandy, I totally agree that today's gutter-press is less influential that the ill-informed posting on social media. Ern, I hold the DVLA in very low esteem as their own bureaucracy has been permitted to rule over common sense and customer service. Why on earth the local DVLA offices were ever closed in favour of "putting all their eggs in one basket" remains a mystery to me. As soon as you have a monopoly - sooner or later inefficiency is guaranteed. If there was an alternative agency through which UK vehicle registrations and licence issues etc., could be administered, then I for one would be first in the queue.
  5. I have always run my vehicles until below a quarter full, then filled up . . . and repeat! I see no reason to change that BUT if restrictions are imposed over the amount that can be purchased in one session, then to be honest, I will be inclined to fill up sooner. Currently I am running a neighbour to hospital three times a week for dialysis; a total of up to 80 miles return per visit, so while I normally use LPG, I am currently using petrol because of having to transport a wheel chair and a passenger with restricted movement, in a vehicle that does not run on LPG. Instead it runs on E5 fuel at £1.43 a litre instead of the previous price of £1.28 prior to the introduction of E10 fuel that unfortunately is not compatible with the car.

  7. Sadly I cannot use E10 in our vehicles, consequently the price I now have to pay at the pump has increased from £1.28 a litre to £1.43 a litre just to continue using E5 fuel that is now laughingly classed as 'super'. In addition, I now have to travel further from our home to seek out suppliers of E5 as the local supermarkets currently are not stocking E5 unleaded. Talking to a local taxi driver yesterday, I was told that some of their cars are petrol powered, and any fuel increase will be passed on to their customers in the form of increased fares for all, regardless of the fuel used in the particular vehicle used. At the moment the cost remains too high but I would seriously consider an EV if the technology allowed greater distances between charges and / or quicker charge times. Currently in my opinion they simply are not fit for purpose for anything but relatively local journeys. Link to FBHVC where it states, "The Federation will also seek reassurance that historic vehicle owners will not be financially penalised at the pump when purchasing protection grade fuel and that its availability will not be time limited."

  14. While some cars allow one side light at front, and another at the rear to be illuminated if the indicator arm is set to left or right, with the ignition off, I vividly remember my father using a parking light that clipped over the top of a side window, and was powered by a lead clipped connected directly to the car battery under the bonnet (no cigarette lighter sockets in those days). I also used to have a small adaptor that fitted between the 12N and the 12S sockets of our caravans. This allowed 12V from the leisure battery to be used to temporarily power the front and rear side lights of the caravan, when detached from the towing vehicle. From memory I believe this gadget was produced by Hella.
