A litre of oil for every tank full of fuel?

Crikey.

It's semi-related to the GST caper; in the vein of Amazon, Demon Tweeks has started geoblocking its UK site to Oz (per ISP) browsers.

As the saying has it, "If you don't ask..."  :)  Maybe Mr Speedlux would like to vend my first nose ID19?

I personally think you could probably have the same amount of motoring enjoyment for a lot less, but high priced restored cars hopefully foster a quality restoration ethic.

Hi, at the rear of my grilles there is an unusual looking nut that the headlight screw fits into (see large-scale photo). On the other headlight there is a normal-looking nut and washer (bottom right of the other photo). My questions are should both sides have the unusual looking nut?, and if so, where might I get hold of one?

Synth oils do not stink like mineral oil if your car burns oil like my 156! use synth and your passengers won't get out rubbing their eyes and wheezing. my JTS uses a  liter of oil per 60 litres of fuel  good fuel economy and shite oil economy

I had a similar experience too recently with my 147 twin spark, i've been using 5w-40 for about a year, i moved back to 10w-50 in the last oil change and consumption has dropped and the variator noise on start up is gone. Fuel consumption seems to be the same - i've travelled about 1000km since the change, next change i might go to 10-60 to see how that goes.

Mine feels slower when there are reds and blues behind it!  :P

Overall though, I also reckon it's the Placido Effect.
