    End of an era for British Airways.

    Hi 4WD That is a good find, thanks for posting. For anyone interested, the programme 'Top Gear' is filmed here.

    C-130

    Hi As for not using overslung wings on transport aircraft. I am not an aircraft designer so i will defer to those that are. I did notice however that the C17 and the latest A400-M all use an overslung wing design.

    C-130

    Hi Lads An interesting debate. To show just how ahead of its time the C-130 was i will make a comparison. Back in the 50s us Brits were still designing and building some pretty cutting edged aircraft. The RAF needed a new heavy transport so tenders were sent out. The result was the Blackburn...

    Deagle

    Hi The Wilson or Ed Brown sound a good idea. I always hankered for a Caspian Arms or STI Infinity in 10mm. Just a pipe dream for me now of course. Looks like life has patted you on the back with the oil care package. Well done.

    Deagle

    Hi. How well do you cope with recoil? It would be a shame to buy one in 50AE and be reluctant to shoot it. If that is not an issue then it would have to be the big .50AE. I know this may seem a little odd but i enjoyed recoil. I had a Lew Horton 629 with a 3 inch barrel and that was a hoot with...

    2008 Grand Cherokee 3.0CRD OM642

    Hi. I am mot really sure to be honest. I thought iron levels at 27 were high considering only 4000 miles on the oil. Having said that i noted the soot levels are at 0.9% so it may well be purely down to a lot of cold running and stop starts. It all seems consistent with previous oil analysis. I...

    Hi Sorry, i presumed Petronas would be a big player in American market. They own the Selenia brand also so are the fluids that fiat chrysler use over here. Should you look at a Ravenol product in the future i am not sure which one would best suit the forum. Here is a list of the PAO oils they...

    How much is a gallon of gasoline in your area right now?

    Hi It looks like we will be moving to the E10 petrol in the not too distant future here. 99 RON is the highest octane i have seen available although i do believe it is possible to get some really high octane stuff for track cars. I always thought the Grand Cherokee was available with the 3.0...

    How much is a gallon of gasoline in your area right now?

    Hi Yes we are taxed to high heaven on fuel over here. Hence why diesel is so popular for the mpg. If i lived in US my jeep would be a V8 Hemi and not diesel. Standard unleaded is 95 RON and is 5% ethanol. You can get a super unleaded that can be anything from 97-99 RON but is much more...

    Any 2 Euro oils you guys would like to see a VOA for?

    Hi. It is very decent of you to make the offer. Thank you. How about a Petronas offering? They are one of the big players now and i presume supply Mercedes. Certainly enough sponsoring of the F1 AMG team. I do not think i have ever seen an analysis. Another one is the Ravenol as suggested...

    Hi Astro14 Fair enough. I appreciate you giving us a little slack anyway.

    How much ammo do you need?

    Hi ollie. I do not want to get political as the site does not allow. I do hope however that the mods will allow me this. Those rights are not your Government's to either grant or take away.

    How much ammo do you need?

    Hi. I will be the first to quote Kipling. :) “A man can never have too much red wine, too many books, or too much ammunition” Had i still been Pistol shooting i would have got one of the fancy Dillon presses. As i only load for rifle i make do with a Rockchucker. As i said earlier i am...
