  1. AndrewMaston Is this your video? Is that white container approved for petroleum storage? if not then you are taking a massive risk,( don't forget your home insurance will be voided if its not) if there is a fire. I know Ethanol loves Aluminium, there are corrosion inhibiters that are added to prevent this, also what are you doing with the water, I hope that's being disposed of properly and not just thrown down the drain, nice to have that making its way back into the drinking water. or even worse put into your nearest water course. Just Like Lebro says look out for Esso

  6. Hi Allen I have had ceramic coatings on my last 2 euro boxes, , it makes the car easier to clean and the water beading is truly phenominal Stunning effect and also gives little stone chip protection. To be honest I would go little further if I had the 6 repainted, I would also go with a PPF (paint protection Film) no more stone chips . again don't do this straight away after painting . leave it to cure properly.
  7. Hi Jim The tesco owned Esso branded sites sell Esso spec fuel also re Yesterday, I had a phone conversation with someone in the "Product Tech Team" at Shell UK in an attempt to discover the ethanol content of their VPower fuel. I was informed that it is "up to a maximum of 5%" but that this varies depending on the season. When I asked by how much and in which season was it at the lowest level, there was no clear response. The reply to asking whether it ever arrived at the forecourt with no ethanol was an emphatic "no". The Ethanol content doesn't change, their is a diffe

    Door Cards

    I have for awhile had an issue with my drivers door window, so having sorted that I need to re do the door card as this is very warped as there was no weather curtain So I have decided to re make a new set of cards, main issue is staples, I have hand stapler but I can't find 3mm staples, Would any forumites have any ideas on what staples i need, I don't have an air supply so the pneumatic type isn't an option, looking forward to any guidance before I take the old door cards apart. Cheers
