In Topic: Esso

11 January 2015 - 08:10 PM

Our local Esso now takes Clubcards too, although they don't explicitly ask for them (at least, not when I've went in to pay) so if you forget to hand one over then you miss out. 


That actually happened yesterday after spending £52 filling the tank up (pretty cheap though, thanks to 108.9 per litre) which resulted in me being mildly peed off.

In Topic: Will We See 99.9P Per Litre Again?

The government letting fuel prices drop is like a hostage taker putting their gun down.  It is good news for now, but they have the power to turn it back around again in a second. 


I think everybody is right to assume they will.  There is nothing in it for the government or retailers to keep the prices low, but that said I hope it stays down for long enough to get a few tanks of petrol and at least see some benefit from the - albeit brief - reprieve.


The bottom line is though, even if it went up to £2 per litre, we'd probably still pay it - because lets face it, we don't have a choice!

In Topic: Only One Reversing Light !

Both our '97 Fiesta and '00 Focus have only one reverse light, as do most other Fords as far as I know.


I really don't see it as a problem...

In Topic: The Best Battery?

Just had a research on CarParts4Less and inputted my Car Reg and it comes up with a different Bosch S4 then the one on Ebay!?


Why are there 2 different types of S4's!?


First: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item5d402c9eaf


2nd: http://www.carparts4...44d857&1


the 2nd looks to be smaller in height but longer?


This ocnfuses me now, i dont particulary want to buy a battery that doesn't fit.


Thanks again

They are different sizes - one is 063 and the other 075. 


I would say that the 075 would be the one for your Focus but don't quote me on that.  I'm pretty sure both could be used in the MK1s but as for the MK2.5 I don't know.

Found this one on ebay: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item5d402c9eaf


So if the Voltage of the car is 14v+ then thats bad? sorry you haven't put full stops or comma's down so i didnt get what you ment.


I'm guessing this will fit in my car perfectly fine and i'd need to remove the negative before the positive when changing them over? 



14.2v - 14.4v is fine, any higher than that would indicate something unusual.


Negative is removed before positive and positive before negative when reconnecting B)
