I have an MOT certificate!
Him: "CO emissions are barely registering. What did you do, just the tappets?"
Me: "I changed the lambda sensor too. I thought you said you didn't think sorting the valve clearances would make enough of a difference?"
Him: "Ah. Yes..."
Still, I didn't get charged for pre-MOT emissions testing, so just the half-price retest fee.
Thinking about it, the car's been getting around 7.5 miles a litre on long runs and 6 (at a push) around London. At 9000 miles a year that's 13-1400 litres. If all this work has improved fuel economy by 20% then that's a £300 saving in a year.
The engine's running so beautifully I can now properly tune into the driveshaft noises
