    Tesla one year on

    I’m was hoping that someone would launch a decent usable electric van, with a good range, but nothing seems to be happening. The government have more or less forced us to have diesel everything and soon they will be trying to charge us a million pounds a day to use a diesel.

    Sounds like a good choice then, they are definitely the way forward. How have you found the range?

    Vw Transporter black smoke

    It had about 75k I think, it was unbelievable that van it had a new gear box under warranty then a couple of years later the intercooler, then the head, then it needed a new radiator, then the water pump went, then the injectors had to be replaced, then to top it off it had to have new wiring loom. When I asked the vw garage about it they told me it was an 8 year old van with 90k miles and that's what I should expect, I was gob smacked. Still I hope you have better luck. It put me off VW for life.

    It was the smaller one, I think it was 1.8 or 1.9.

    Boiler recommendations

    Ideal vogue is top end for good price. Don't go near Potterton or Baxi their after service is non existent. Worcester are seriously overpriced now, valliant good but a bit overpriced.

    Land Rover Freelander Terrain Response

    Freelanders are permanent 4 wheel drive aren't they?
  15. Defo replace it, no chance of repair. Don't use a crane or hattersley valve, they are all made in the same factory and are the most unreliable valves I have ever used and I fit a lot of big valves. They are an absolute rip of as well, a 6" will prob cost £600-£1000. Albion valves are the best value at the moment and good quality, al least half the price. Best thing to do is replace with a stainless butterfly valve especially if it's buried, most gate and globe valves tend to seize unless used fairly regularly. What's it used on is the other thing that determines the best valve type to use?
