In Topic: Decision Time

I decided to go ahead with the welding and now have 12 months MOT, but £300 lighter!

In respect of the clutch the mechanic said it could last for a while and might be worth waiting. I have driven it with a high bite for a good few months and it only slips in 4/5th gear.

What is the best way to nurse a clutch? At the moment I accelerate very gently and if going up hills use lower gears.

My petrol gets about 41mpg on a run but around town can be as low as 28/29. When we bought the car we were using the car for just town driving but then my wife got a job which requires 25 miles of A road driving each day.... diesel next time!

Had a look at the tyre and can't see any mention of run flat or any mention in the manual. As the car has a space saver wheel I'm guessing it doesn't have run flats fitted. Would be good to have other peoples opinions though!
