Yes i can imagine the lorry i used to drive was a scania 142 double drive STG CAT 3 we used to move plant up to 150 tonne no MOT or PSV because the lorry was classed as a locomotive not allowed to do more than 25MPH and you should be aware of the pressure that is in the hydraulic self steering and suspension rams when you have 150 tonne on top off them and i can tell you its very scary when the seals or a pipe blows beside you.

hi, i have just done the maths to calculate my MPG according to my dash read out which is in litres/100km
if i do 7L/100km which is unusually low for me on an average journey (thats if i'm really trying to conserve fuel) then my calculations say i would be doing around 37.7mpg
my usual average is more like 8L/100km (that's driving comfortably and sticking to the limits) this gives me somewhere around 30mpg. please explain how you achieve 50mpg???????? as in the current climate with diesel as high as it is, this would help me greatly

Re: Renault Laguna 2 - dCi Fuel Tank Reserve

Hi there... just got here beacuse me Lag II 1.9 dci run out of fuel...

First I had a error on dashboard, but dont know for sure what it said.

Car stopped and after putting 4Liters, and after few trials the engine started. (also needed to operate by hand the fuel pump).

It started and sounds good ... but have an error telling to "STOP INGNITION"... and "speaking" Injection problem.

I assume something got memorized, and just want to clear the alarms
