  1. Brief scenario, going to work and went into fuel station to buy the local rag and as the fuel light was on and showing 37 miles left decided to fill up. Put £20 of petrol in, went in, paid for it, started car but fuel light was still on. Checked mileage, still 37 miles til empty. Went inside to speak to assistant. He said to take it for a quick drive and jab on the brakes as 'Fords are known for it' tried it, didn't work so went back in. He said there was nothing he could do there and then but to come back later when the boss was in. So, after work, driving back to station, petrol light was still on. Getting myself pumped up far an argument.................and the light went off and mileage to empty went up to over 100 miles! Sent the assistant a message on Facebook(I used to work with him) and apologised for any hassle it may have caused. He replied saying he's had a few Fords in with the same problem. Personally I've never heard of it but just wondering if it is a common fault and if so, is it curable without spending a fortune?
  2. I don't like remembering how old I REALLY am!!! I was speaking to a mate yesterday about going to see a band again that I first saw 20 odd years ago...........................and then figuring out it was actually 30 years ago!!!!!
  3. I have thought that myself, but unfortunately I don't know the previous numberplate. I only checked because I was being nosey after she got her new number.
  4. Been closed since 2011!
  5. Think about the 16 GOOD years you had with her that she may not have had, had you not chosen her
  6. I find flashing lights at folk, especially up here where the chances are you might know the other driver, just results in a friendly wave back!!! And sometimes it's the bus that needs to switch it's lights on! Seen quite a few busses up here recently driving on either very dim sidelights or dipped headlights with one blown bulb! So much for daily checks!
  7. The amount I see in the morning going about with no lights on is unreal! Lights are dual purpose ie see and BE SEEN!!! Switching your own lights off and on a couple of times usually gives the oncoming driver a clue
  8. I do like that after hearing about my incident with a hammer and axe head, as detailed in the 'I don't like' thread, a workmate gave me this today
  9. We bought a couple of them for our boys last Christmas, think they got fed up with them after a couple of weeks! They've lost the remotes now! I stuck one of the bulbs in the police sign I spoke about the other day, looks quite good with the colours changing
  10. I like receiving a large Jiffy bag in the post today! 3x100 watt equivalent(actually 10 watt) LED standard lightbulbs and 2x40 watt(3watt) LED cooker hood bulbs. Instant light now in the sittingroom and outside the back door as opposed to waiting 5 minutes for the old ones to heat up, and I can actually see what I'm burning now on the cooker!!! Am I sad in getting excited over LED bulbs?
  11. But have you actually tried it?
  12. Have you tried leaving the keys in the house and trying to open/start it?
  13. it used to have a handle but it broke!
  14. We buy bags of kindling from a charity shop, saves me the bother and helps a good cause as well. I take home the blocks from old pallets and split them by placing a handless old axe head and hitting it with a hammer! Only this time I managed to miss I'm now looking for a less dangerous method
  15. Mind you, I do have a mate who, many years ago, stole the old fashioned blue revolving beacon off the top of a cop car once!
