Re: E5 and E10 petrol containing ethanol

I have always run my 216 Cabbie on 95 octane (E10) but, following the debate on the forum, I filled her up with 97 octane (E5) yesterday and what a difference that made! It’s like having a new woman (oops! I will have the politically correct forum after me for that remark) but she runs so much smoot...

Re: New R8 Rover 200 book to be published in April 2021

It is a mine of information and excellent value for money. A must for every R8 owner.

Re: E5 and E10 petrol containing ethanol

So it’s E5 petrol for my 216 Cabriolet and E10 for my wife’s Volvo - she always has the snarling power monsters!

Re: E5 and E10 petrol containing ethanol

I feel it is a bit much that the DoT does not provide information on their website for Rover "because the manufacturer does not exist". Surely they should accommodate older vehicles as part of their service to motorists irrespective of how old our vehicles are. It is not our fault that petrol is cha...

Re: Cabby windbreaker?

As a cabby owner I have never come across a windbreaker and can’t wok out from the photograph what it’s use is.
I opened the item on 1st April so thought it may have some relevance to that. However if this item is something to stop me, as a cabby owner, from breaking wind then I am interested!

£2,500! Mine must be worth £5,000 based on that! :)

Do I recognise the photo location as the approach road to Speke Hall?

A bit late for Easter but not as fattening as an Easter egg! It’s on order.

Re: specialist rover garage

The big dealer garages only want cars that can be plugged into a computer that then tells them what to do - as Rover Revivals says, “employing monkeys”. I am lucky to have found a garage here in North Wales that looks, when you go in, like something from the 1950’s, where the owner is hands-on and u...

Re: RoverRevival Open Day (new year maybe)

Great idea, but as others have said, it all depends on the Pandemic situation at the time.
It would be just our luck here in North Wales to be still in lockdown and have to watch as the rest of the UK join you !

Re: Peak District Run N-S from Holmfirth

I would agree with a Spring event. This Covid19 outbreak is going to be with us until after Christmas as people are being very lax with masking and social distancing. It seems like a case of "it won't happen to me". You only need one member of your family to go for a test, because of other peoples s...

Re: 216 GTi TC + 75

Woodend Lane, off Speke Boulevard. Went to Stockton Wood Road school, then Stapleton Avenue and Central Avenue. Have been round the world since then and am now domicile in North Wales. Have had my 216 Cabriolet (red, which may give you a clue to my loyalties) for 23 years. It was previously a Rover ...

I grew up in Speke too. Two Rover owners from Speke! Well, that's what I call class.

Re: Peak District Run N-S from Holmfirth

Having read the Telegraph report it sounds just the thing for a northern run. However, caution is the word in these Covid days. Would be interested once Covid is beaten. Having had a taste of the Peak District, I would do the 75 mile day run then stay over and sample some of the hotels as listed in ...
