Re: New and confused - lack of power/ boost

What fuel are you using?
Our 2001 Bongo didn't like supermarket fuel and went into limp mode when hot.

Re: Newcastle - Bergen, possible new ferry in 2013

Thanks guys.
Doesn't look too bad and as said saves the drive up from Dunkirk or wherever.
Looking to go up to the North Cape, back down to Denmark and catch the ferry to Iceland sometime in the next couple of years so it would be ideal.

Does it light up. I think you have to have a warning light for Fog On.

Re: Newcastle - Bergen, possible new ferry in 2013

There is a ferry from immingham to Gottenberg Not Cheap but..... http://freight.dfdsseaways.com/dfds_ferries/north_sea_ferries/gothenburg_immingham_ferries/ Twenty four hours UK to Scandinavia.

Re: Allithwaite May Bank Holiday Meet 1st May to 4th May 201

Sorry we couldn't make it but something cropped up at the last moment which meant we had to stay at home.
Hope everyone had a reasonable time despite the weather and hope to be there next time.

Re: Fiamma awning with side lifting roof

Yes, we had exactly that. I definitely wouldn't advise lifting the roof from one corner as it will twist and sooner or later it will break something. After a lot of faffing about trying different things we just pushed it up from inside, not easy but quite possible. I then fastened a webbing loop ont...

Smashing weekend as usual. Great to see everyone again despite the ageist insults. (Jane) :lol: :lol:
Bit cold but at least we got some sun on Saturday unlike last year when we all sat around under umbrellas.

Yes, stunning spot that car park.
