Re: E5 E10 petrol

one problem I see with the older fuel injected cars is that they are not able to be adjusted, they left the factory adjusted to try and reach 14.7:1 air fuel ratio as that was the fuel in the 90'ies, but now with e10 you have a stoichiometric air fuel ratio of 14.1:1, so they will be running a bit t...

Re: E5 E10 petrol

yes the added ethanol content seems to bring out more crap in the fuel, didn't use to run a fuel filter right be fore the carb but now the gets totally brown with crap and needs to be changed once a year or more. in my mind, if you solve the rubber related problems and that sort of stuff, I don't se...

Re: E5 E10 petrol

hello. yes the 10% ethanol is a bit of an annoyance, but a smaller problem that you are led to believe in my opinion. I have been running a 998 metro as a daily for a long time. this car has been running on 5% ethanol for very long and has also been running some months on 10% with out problems. the ...

Re: MOT Tomorrow

Mine sit out all year round and it's a real battle keeping the rust at bay as they get older. Two are going to need both arches doing in a year or so. Already done the cills, some of the floor pan and inner front arches at a cost of £530. Price you pay for trying to keep them going I guess. Still w...

Re: MOT Tomorrow

yes that is sad. cant you sell it to someone and then buy a working one. it seems possible to find a relatively cheap metro still. Sadly, my Rover Metro is still outside without an MOT but I liked driving it so much, and it is worth so little as it is that I cannot really justify getting rid - it s...

Re: 4 pot calipers

there must be a lot available. try requesting one on the metro power for sale facebook page. a lot more users on there. but yes, you have to be really really carefull with those bleed nipples. they have a tendency to snap even 5-10 years from new. I have never had success with drilling them out, the...
