Battery Voltage Query

25 November 2014 - 02:01 PM


This morning I thought after a hellish frost it was a good time to check my ginger monsters battery when I did it read 12.3v bear in mind this was after a 3 mile journey last night and about 20 minutes idling to de-ice the car, this morning I went on it must have been a 15-20 mile thrash, the alternator is working well pushing 14.5 on idle, I stopped the engine and left it for about 5 minutes and checked again and the voltage seemed to be holding on well to 12.7v do you reckon the battery is alright but depleted due to a sudden drop in temps and a few short runs?

I just love coming out of work to a steamy window. Thank God for AC.

I'm Thinking Of A Little Upgrade.

Right the top and bottom of it is I want a new shape ST, but one can only dream, so I have found myself a lovely little Fiesta Metal on a 2011 plate, now where I'm stuck is a rough idea of how much ,my insurance will go up by from my little 1.4 flame, my current insurance costs £820 being a little 20 year old I guess I'm branded with the boy racer mentality, I'm thinking something like 1100 perhaps more are there any other younglings with such a car who could give me some idea?


Fiesta Mk6 Interior Lighting

I'm just sitting here in the dark waiting for someone and have noticed that the boot release button doesn't illuminate is this broken or is it that just they don't.

Roundswell Roundabout.

26 June 2014 - 12:39 AM

I was out to barnstaple on Monday in the gingermobile and the roundswell roundabout changes have been completed, I'm not sure how many of you lot use that road but anywho it's a marked improvement except for the fact that the barnstaple and north Devon massive seem bemused to get into the correct lane and it's totally hellish, just thought I would share it as alot of people have avoided that's area during the works due to the traffic it caused.

Cheers and gone.
