Weekend after next. Is the stuff you've used the long life stuff? Otherwise you should change more like every 30k miles.

I agree, and exactly what I'm doing Ian (Bods), Gordon did it and a service at 65k, but I had a strange noise afterwards. So at 75k I devised this method and flushed thinking it would cure it. It didn't, a genuine fuel filter did though.... :roll:
So now at 108k, and I had shudders. :thumbright:
Farm is near Nailsworth, we've got it in the diary to meet up :thumbright:

I am thinking of this too, however I just worked out we have spent over £3k in the last 3 months on the cars for tyres, repairs & servicing etc :shock: . That's even with a £800 warranty contribution

I can't bring myself to spend any more :cry:

House needs re pointing too.

Edit: on the plus side, renewed the road tax on the Volvo and it was FREE :thumbright:
