  1. I don't know what you mean. I had a sensible car........once, and absolutely hated it for all the reasons it was sensible and good. But I do like the iveco apart from the most recent jelly mould version. Mike
  2. I did look at the 4x4 iveco's, to be honest any of the earlier ones would do nicely. My wife had a 35-10 (2wd) for a while and it was quite nice to drive. Mike
  3. I do mean our @Nonimouse, though I do still need to confirm with him. I'm the opposite side of Southampton in totton but I can get to Fareham after work (5.30 ish) relitively easily next week if need be. Mike
  4. Bish im going from Southampton to castle combe on the 13th the down to Lovejoy the next day. I'm camping and will have a small person but should have room, if that helps. Mike
  5. Yes it is a pressure petrol stove, yes it does flare up a bit of lighting and no I don't use it in the truck but on the shelf on the back door. I have a little gas stove for quick cuppa's but tend to use the colman on overnight trips. Mike
  6. I used my colman dual fuel stove in anger at the weekend, I have to say I'm very pleased with it. Mike
  7. I like 285/75x16 but the 110 is running 255/85x16 and the ibex has 33/12.50x15's what ever way you look at it I like the gearing lift that 33's give and they look good. Mike
  8. Our 110 had that section cut out for a discovery gearbox, it made the whole seat box weak. When I put the correct gearbox in I found the bit that was cut out and bolted a bit of stainless angle over it. If I was to cut it off I would bolt or rivet some angle over there to strengthen the bridge. That way it would be strong and nearly flush. Mike
  9. Where as a waeco runs at the temperature it's set (-18°c max from memory) and there's a section that is about 5°c warmer. Same thing but different ways of listing and therefore measuring it I think. Mike
  10. This is precisely why I fitted a 200tdi instead of td5 in the ibex. I get around 27 mpg average but normally nearer to 30mpg, everything I read said a td5 was 23mpg on a good day. Mike
  11. Must resist, must resist. Wait hang on it's not a real mini....all good. Mike
  12. Unlikely anytime soon, unless I really do start to run out of mone........ Mike
  13. My commute has just doubled for similar reasons. I too thought about economy box but can't bring myself to do it. At the moment I'm just stomaching the £200+ a month fuel bill, but I have a workmate who lives near so we have been car sharing but given his mrs is about to drop we thought it wise to go in seperately for a while. I have a contingency plan of a mini based silly little plastic car... the only catch is I have to build it first. So I say either live with it or car share/buy a euro box but I doubt you'll make much impact on your current fuel economy. Mike
  14. Oh........ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/164965688202 Mike
  15. I've got the waeco/domestic CF 35 and a CF 25 both good fridges will do minus 18° However they don't like low batterys. I have a charging fault on my second battery (not fully chargin) this caused the fridge to only work part time after a day last time I used it, normally it'll do a couple of days. Mike
