Suggest you put a call in to Sinclair’s in Cardiff - they seem to know their stuff. I was in there on the weekend to enquire about a tyre flush and summer air refill. He said if I went for Welsh gas he’d throw in a good rimming in for free. Any reviews on Welsh gas? Is it worth the Premium? Will I still get the same promised mpg improvement when I drive in England?

I spoke to Sinclair’s and they can’t shift any of the premium stuff. Probably why, they’re throwing in the free rimming…

I now need rimming again , am I best replacing my wheels with steel ones ?
I’ve been told that rimming is most successful when you’re steeled for it. Cardiff has offered Welsh Gas as a special to newer members, but apparently it’s turned out to be just hot air extracted from chickens.

And there you have it from the expert as he relaxes in his " subsidised solar heated bath ".

Best to check the long range weather forecast. I imagine it might be too late to get a booking for 1st April.

I agree with the "check long range weather forecast " . I was planning to change 1st April to summer air, but a winter blast is coming ... so will stay with the winter air for a few more weeks.

Looks very familiar, but a full inflation is (for me) a real workout for the arm muscles. Push 30 times, relax for a minute, repeat as required....half an hour later, have a cup of coffee.

That’s about right. 30 pumps is about 1 psi. I was inflating the tyres for heavy loads. From memory, rear from 41 to 45psi; front from 44 to 45psi. Total inflation 10psi ~ 300 pumps.

As well as cleaner and greener it’s sweatier and therefore smellier.

You seriously used the word “seriously” on this thread!?
Yes. Seriously. I doubt if they would even know anything about even “ a solar heated bath “.

Just pop your tyre pump in the freezer for a couple of hours before topping up your tyres ..

I just put the wheels in the freezer for a bit one at a time, far far simpler than messing about with a foot pump.
