    The bus is ill :(

    The bus is going into have some warranty work done as she's not a happy chap at the moment. Couple of minor things are the front ashtray not closing properly and the front screen trim doesnt sit right (been like that since I got her), but she also requires a new exhaust manifold gasket which is blowing on the o/s, and she needs her excessive drinking problem looking at as she's dropped from an average 27mpg average to 22.9mpg (I am thinking the DV may not be helping this so will be removing that and running her for a bit to see if it makes a differance), down side is Ill be without her for 2-3days as we're only working on her when quiet.

    If you got an exhaust blow Dave that will play havoc with your economy as the lambda probes wont be seeing an accurate signal of exhaust gasses from the engine.
