Newbie.... Who me??

Post by captpugwash » Mon Apr 25, 2016 8:37 pm

Hi peoples, read many topics as a guest. now i'm registered.

A brief history:-

I have a 2.0 HDI (90) estate, had her 2 yrs now, and don't treat her the way she deserves. got her as a means of getting A-B but she has never let me down. Last MOT advisory for two tires getting low on tread. I do 250 miles per week and average 50+ mpg urban. and all this from a motor with 231000 on the clock, she also pulls my boat and trailer GVW 1300kgs

I have had the 206 1.4 HDI SW l. 405 1.9 TD which I ran on pure veg oil during the summer.

You can't beat PUGS I love 'em

We towed a broken-down 307 on a trailer back from Herts with a certain veg-oil powered 1.9TD estate. :supafrisk:
Getting it going was no problem, stopping was something else. :o

Hi everyone,

she is going good, no issues Steve. (apart from handbrake never been too clever since purchase)

and I ain't brave towing the boat...... the sea will stop me if the brakes don't
