Why? I don't feel the need to 'flag wave' for the manufacturers of the particular brand of car I drive. The 'gratitude' should be from the dealer to me as I chose to spend my hard earned cash on their product. Now, if they'd given me a hefty discount in return for some flag waving, that would be a different matter.

Andre,

You seem to be taking it a tad to heart.
I am sure Richard see's it as the light hearted banter that it is.

Of course if it has hit a raw nerve then that is a very different matter

Mollers

You are wise beyond your years

Any way

Ah something I thought to ask earlier but forgot.........
Do you really need inspection covers for the fuel tanks?
Only one boat I have been on over the years had them and to be fair that was the only one I have ever had to get into the tanks.
The reason for this was blocked fuel lines.
We later found this was due to the large amount of both Sicaflx and Fibre Glass in the tank from the build of the boat........not very good so wont ever be buying one of them!!!!


Best regards

Sure do. they generally give you access to the fuel cap and sender on the tank! The senders do corrode and if unchecked this will put a hole in the tank and also they can faill and need changing.

Should you also buy some contaminated fuel (or have sikaflez or fibre glass debris) the inspection hatch makes it a lot easier to get the bad stuff out.
