My 12hp R&V is remarkably economical. It will run all day on a litre of fuel. It may have something to do with the fact that it spends most of its time coasting. I think the count is 40 revolutions between firing!

Have you got any video clips of it running? Them flywheels must take some stopping once there running.

After todays misshap god knows Mad , broke down in the middle of Biggar high street the emergency brake line came out the union where it goes onto the flexi hose to couple to the trailer. The fitter came from bellshill followed his sat nav and guess what ? it sent him the other way. 5 hours i sat there didnt get my 1st drop of and late for second.

To top it all The Police turned up and conversation went like this;

Copper (nice female)- "i take it you have broken down"
Me -"Yes"
Copper - " lol! lol! lol!

At this point my thoughts were :upurs: :
and then they buggered of.

Hope tomorrows better

Paul
