If your Bongo is feeling a bit under the weather, then the duty nurse at the Bongo Clinic may be able to find a remedy.As you can well imagine, nurse is incredibly busy, so before asking for a diagnosis there are a few things you can do yourself. We strongly advise that you:a) browse through the questions in the archive to see if your query has arisen before
b) try asking other Bongo owners via the Forum.
If none of that works, then send an email with your problem, and we will get back to you as soon as we can, although note that we do not have a technical department as such.
NOTE: Due to the number of queries we receive we can now only accept queries from paid-up club members. So please quote your membership number (which you will find on your card). No membership number = no response!

Q: I see that E10 fuel is now available at my local forecourt. Is it safe to use in my Bongo? (Claire from Buxton)
A: If you have a V6 Bongo then we recommend that you continue to use E5 fuel if available, although E10 should not cause any harm if a fuel additive (such as Lucas Ethanol Guard) is used. The same applies to 2 litre Bongos up to chassis numbers SGEW-503208 and SGE3-400091 when a new engine was introduced. On these later models you can use E10 fuel without any problems.
