  1. European trip is definately on the cards when the lotto numbers come up. Maybe not in a heatwave though.

  4. So not opening the engine lid as to do so makes it run hotter is an urban myth?!?

  5. Its probably true for splitties where cooling vents are small and low down.
    But on a Late Bay the vents are larger and higher up specifically to suck air from as far as possible from the hot air blasting out just below . If you spent any time in traffic driving slowly with the lid open it will suck it back in, and probably the same at high speed where the bus is towing along dead air.
    I still rate this an urban myth brought on by there being a splitty in the Spanish fleet.
     
  6. Lack of cash. Not been on a holiday (apart from a few days camping in the UK) since i was a kid.

  14. But was that the slowing down to find somewhere to open the lid ?:)

    My oil loses 20 degrees C after 10 minutes of slow driving

    Its worth some checking though, this cooling thing. I may try a thermometer near the fan inlet. I can wire a spare sensor over to one of the CHT channels and try engine lid up/down.
