  1. If there are no leaks, then it's likely to be grit in the valves in the pump head. You have three options: Replace pump head cost around £40. Fit a non return valve in the system. Strip down pump head, clean, reassemble and hope it works. Note you cannot get overhaul kits.
  2. It may not affect you and no doubt others can comment but I have in the back of my mind that some breakdown companies have an exclusion on cover if the van weighs more than the car.
  3. Now there was me thinking Doncaster was in Yorkshire.
  4. Just watched it display at bournemouth air show. Sad to think I will never see its like again.
  5. In that case, it more impressive than I thought.
  6. Saw it at Bournemouth today. Didn't display at Shoreham due to accident. Was due to do a fly past at Bournemouth in transit to Dawlish Some fly past. Went around several times before disappearing up into the sky like a rocket. Four Olympus on reheat. An amazing noise, noisier than the Red Arrows but not as noisy as the typhoon. Full display at Bournemouth air show tomorrow. Weather permitting
  7. Not as far as my first point. At one time we had at least 13 refineries almost all operated by companies whose names were on the pumps. In the last ten years fuel companies have moved out of refining and a number have closed hence now only two are owned by fuel companies.
  8. I insure with LV. Just been diagnosed with Type 2. (No tablets or injections) They were not interested.
  9. I think its worth remembering that there are only six refineries in the UK now. Of these only two are owned by companies whose names you might see on the pumps (Total and Esso) In reality fuel usually now comes from the nearest refinery whatever brand you buy. The difference is supposed to be in the additives,
  10. CC site at Denham. Overground to Marylebone 5 mins away with good but not cheap car park. You can however park about 5 mins away for free Also not to far to West Ruislip or Uxbridge underground but not sure about parking though
  11. I was tempted to say that in the light of your penultimate sentence you may not be posting very much but then I decided that would be childish so I didn't.
  12. I have a friend in a wheelchair who qets quite upset with the phrase disabled toilet. He says that it is not the toilet which is disabled but the person using it hence it should be called a toilet for the disabled.
  13. Only certain buses can use it without grounding and they use their air suspension. I would be very doubtful and has been pointed out a coach got stuck recently It would be quicker to go via Wareham
  14. I think there are a number of people on here who are not familiar with the geography of Dorset. Bournemouth, Poole and Swanage are at one end and next to Hampshire whereas Lyme Regis is the other end and almost in Devon. They are between one and a half and two hours driving away. Remember we have no motorways and not many dual carriageways. Then there's the tractors.
  15. Having done these routes a number of times both towing and solo, I would also go for route 3. Mind you M27 and A31 through the Forest were horrendous today
