Re: Mot

Clio passed again today it seems that Diesels get cleaner as they get older.
2009 44600 miles 1.85 on the smoke test
2010 55486 miles 0.98
2011 66639 miles 0.51
2012 77266 miles 0.36
2013 86394 miles 0.33
2014 95908 miles 0.11
last 2 it had the EGR disconnected 3.00 is the max allowed but it does seem to be getting cleaner the last test was on Morrison's fuel and a dash of 2 stroke oil in the fuel, it's not loosing any power and will still spin the wheels up if the road is a bit wet in first and second.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?
