    BUT there is some scare mongering on the Stag Face Book page.
    Isn't that the purpose of Faecesbook? (Apart from cat pictures and recipes to get even more sugar and fat into the diet!)
    If you can't say something nice, don't say it !

        Yes have heard of this thing called facebook, also some other ones called twitter. They don't really interest me so I don't use them. a bit like most if not all the online "news" papers. In fact I find my life is a lot happier if I pretty much ignore the news (news papers, radio & TV) and social media sites. I'm sure if anything really important happens that I need to know about someone will tell me!

            You need to retune Freeview following big changes yesterday.

              Can't be important because no one has told me yet

                Going back to the initial thread, my Stag developed an intermittent misfire when in France back in May. The problem was finally diagnosed as low compression on 2 of the 8 cylinders. I had been using French supermarket fuel the cheap stuff. If I used 98 Octane the problem disappeared. My Stag specialist has advised that I try and avoid using supermarket fuel here as well until the low compression is sorted.

                  I would avoid E10 like the plague! A mate of mine borrowed my Stag for a few days touring and thanked me by refilling the tank with E10. It hardly ran, with low power, pinking, hard to start and ate the O rings in the bungs in the float chambers. He thought he was doing me a favour!
                  There is a Qld government web site that you can enter your rego and they will let you know if your car is suitable for E10, the response from the Stags rego was "your car may not be suitable for use with E10", funnily enough I got the same response from the rego on my diesel Mistsubishi!
                  Personally I only use 98 RON but will use 95 at a push. The engine is far happier with the higher octane.
                  Occasionally I get hold of some AVGAS 100/110 LL from the airport, now the engine loves that stuff, far more responsive! Exhaust goes a beautiful light grey colour and the spark plugs on removal are a light sand.
                  Avoid the "Green stuff"!
                  regards,

                    When my brother was working at Southend Airport for BAF, he would run both his TR6 and Vitesse 2 litre on Avgas - the Vitesse blew a head gasket at 130000 miles, and the pistons were clean - and it went like stink!

                      Back in my younger day I can rember trying to set a Avgas/ Avcat alight with matches and a lighter bloody hard stuff to set fire to I can tell you. But hell the cars ran well with it took a bit of tweaking though.

                        I wish I could still get 100LL - my old Mini Cooper used to love it.
