    Will do. I reckon us humans have forgotten a lot and many of these old school natural products are better than many of their chemical equivalents. We also make a honey/wax/coconut oil cream that we...

    Esso Supreme and Tesco Super have NO ethanol in them even though the pump says E5 (currently anyway!). We will need to pick carefully, I won't be using E10 in my cobra that's for sure. And yes,...

    If you have good fuel (Esso Supreme 👍) you will get a lot further without pinking. Add some TetraBoost and even better. About 36 or 38 all up seems to be the objective. You might find it won’t...

    You probably need to have it as far advanced as you can and still start it to get the best out of it. Neither do you want pinking.
    I don’t know your engine spec. My old FE runs at 19 static

    I use these now on all sorts including my 427 and a big old diesel generator. Good quality being a leisure battery and will not suffer with long periods of no use. Good cranking power too.

    Yes, do the flexi. Sometimes they can have a ‘flap’ inside that closes and causes issues too. Change the one on the right first.
