Ultra Low Emission Zone

Ultra Low Emission Zone

No point in doing it in Newcastle as everyone knows the coal mine pollution is so bad that it would make no difference. There is a motorway through Newcastle though - the central motorway - got to be almost a mile long. No motorway in Northumberland - the road to Edinburgh ( the Scottish Capital ) i...

Ultra Low Emission Zone

There are no printed emission figures for the 1800ti - our Sabre is always below 1.0 - how are they going to know what your emission levels are unless they measure them. Coming out of Europe may change things of course - or you could fit a cat. Another daft law.

heater fan switch voltage

If the relay were faulty you would have a lot of other things not working - I would remove the fuse clean the ends and replace it - after checking it ok of course with a meter as a visual che...
