Thanks for all your info I am a master at fooling myself and I can at least now tamper my enthusiasm when explaining it to other people. When someone asks what the contraption is I'll say its a supercharged windscre...

Re: Going Hybrid

Thank you for your considered response - very valuable Few points 1) The bang ain't no small pop - in-fact the wife has banned me from showing it off 2) A tyre kicker from the MOD gave it a once over and the thumbs up. 3) It used a lot of stuff I had in the shed 4) I get to write Hybrid on the boot ...

Going Hybrid

Hope your all doing OK in lockdown
Despite the drop in fuel prices - I've built a hydrogen generator for my Consort.
Works fine - but haven't been able to do any long runs to see what the MPG improvement is.
All the best Michael

Driving About

I went out for a drive to give the wife some air.
Someone, asked if we were on the way to a funeral.

It's Exhausting

Got my new 'muffler' set. I have removed the old - jury rigged system. I'm lining all the parts and it's fine to the first silencer box. Does anyone have a picture of how the exhaust should look underneath? One option brings the second silencer too close to the hand brake mechanism, another just loo...

Stainless steel exhaust

I've had a quote for a new exhaust system in stainless steel £600.
Does anyone know how much louder they are than the old steel ones.
