  1. It would be nice to have some direction so one could plan these things. the Victorian Gov't are subsidizing the electric cars far more costly than the mileage User  tax /contribution. that got so much criticism . Not from me I might add.. I can't see why the ICE/ battery combo is almost the same cost though. Nev

  2. Probably all the threads are different on the bottles. I hope not.    They think that the Indian figures are massively under-reported  in relation to being caused by the virus.by up to 300%. Nev

  3. The last time I did the Senate one, it literally took me hours. Some very clever people at that time were working the preferences for money. We got some real whacko's in the senate then..Nev

  4. Jerry . You often interpret my posts as I don't intend them. I don't know why that is. I don't think it's all my fault either but maybe we are just on different wavelengths.?  Nev

  5. You can do a postal vote spacey.  Also what if EVERYBODY DID what I do? Would the system work?. You have the right to vote here. Make it work and be grateful. The rest of the world is much much worse than here. WE of course COULD be better. There's some shonky tricks being used.  We DO have a few polies trying hard to do a good job. Do we  want them to give up? Nev

  6. NoX is a problem in Cities, but it comes down with rain in storms produced by lightning and is a fertiliser. One of the reasons RAIN makes things grow much better than the garden hose does. Lots of people live in cities and it does adversely affect them..

     Any drive by wire accelerator won't blow soot if everythings OK. Earlier injector system s over fuelled slightly at sea level on full throttle, let alone altitude where they blacken the SNOW with soot. The stuff that goes back through the egr valve won't be that sooty either, but problems do abound. It's entering before the turbo and pollutes all the way to the combustion chamber with the blowby gases (and oil) added to the mix. and the whole induction system has this obnoxious black oozy $#!t in it and it can build up on the underside of the inlet valves also and that's harder. This will reduce power output. It's also through your intercooler when fitted.  Nev

  7. If you get onto Pentrites site you can check there Product PDF  (same as with most makes of petroleum products). One component is a small amount of NaOH . (caustic soda) the rest is mainly organic solvents of various kinds. I think I would use it just before an oil and filter change, to eliminate any residuals in the oil.

      EGR valve modulates continuously with lower combustion temps with reduced efficiency, (more CO2), but reduces NOx  IF it sticks, you can pour out heaps of soot  Not friendly and you can be reported and put off the road (and so you should). Nev

  8. Most of us only know someone from how the media wish to portray them. Generally a pretty unreliable source. Yes George must have had enough of his electorate willing to vote for him. There's no suggestion otherwise. It may  be predominantly that he was the Nationals Candidate. I don't know but how people are preselected must have a large bearing on the suitability of any candidate unless they run as an independent and we have a few good ones in that category. (and may we get more). Nev
