    Fuel filter performance

    10,000 km ago I removed my OEM split-system filter & sediment trap assemblies from my Rodeo and replaced them with a single CAV unit because biodiesel had perished the rubber primer diaphragm.

    Green Way Up

    I've just watched 2 episodes of this show on Netflix - the first & the last.

    Sounded like it was pretty controversial when it was first conceived 7 years ago, judging by this closed thread.

    I might have found my Shitbox.

    My grandad bought a Peugeot 405 SRDT brand new back in 1993 (I think) and is looking at trading in on a Mazda 2 and they are offering about $900 on the trade.

    Johnno - I think you have summed it up well. Any old utes in NSW are subject to annual inspections, so are probably in a lot better condition, on average, than in states where annual inspections are...

    I doubt it would fly as you'd still have an unfair advantage with extra ground clearance + limited slip diff + low range.

    I should at least ask the question though. It sure would make things...

    Re: Outstanding pre-filter performance

    That particular filter has been on the car for 5 months. I doubt the car has travelled more than 1000km in that time.

    I change the main filter once a year and carry a spare of each just in case.

    Outstanding pre-filter performance

    I knew I had some crud in the tank of my Mercedes and based on this it might be time to pull the tank and clean it.

    What is the total electrical load you are putting on the generator? Baseload is 10A or 2.4 kW and you have 6.6kW capacity. Is the additional load of the pumps etc more than 17.5 A / 4.2 kW?
