It's been a long and worthwhile wait trying to get all the "right" components, but it was fired up today on a test bed. Collecting it in the next day or two :cool:

Craig.

Worked out that I could recoup the cost in 4 years, but I was already spending way too much already??

On the bright side.......you will NEVER recoup the cost in fuel saved with the mileage you do :p :p :D :D
