Re: Anybody done the museums..?

We did Wolfsburg in 2004 and it was amazing!
I'd be up for a "club tour of the museums" if the club was able to organise something for 2019 (if that's an option you'd like to put to the committee?)

Re: Popping/backfiring when decelerating

check your exhaust for leaks - at all points i.e. heads/heat exchangers, sounds like you're drawing in air somewhere on the deceleration.

Re: Oil temprature double checking ?

I've just fitted a wireless meat thermometer in my bus!
Works beautifully. Far more accurate and stable than previous attempts I tried.
Obviously I don't use it on the BBQ afterwards though lol

If you want to be really sure buy a food thermometer in Asda £4 just the right length for the dip stick hole, this is what I did to confirm gauge reading 182f or 83 c

Brilliant idea, I know what I'm buying next time I go shopping...
me too!
Awesome idea.
