Well, your fans are now working correctly. I've also had my car 4 1/2 years and the fans never come on, except with the A/C. I think this is explained in the owners manual (I don't have ready...

It is definitely a log, only it's spelled LOG (the annual Lotus Owners Group meeting where the largest number of Lotus "flock" together). ;)

I've always thought Singapore had the right idea: Caning for keying a car. It doesn't rid the world of them and it doesn't make them a better person, but I'll bet it sure tends to supress their...

Elanplus2,

I assume from your "name" that you have, or have had, an Elan Plus 2. If that is the case, tell us about it. There are a few of us here that were also Plus 2 owners and always enjoy...

The confusion probably stems from some dyno sheets that are posted here that are labeled "Flywheel HP". The term flywheel, in this case, refers to the dyno flywheel, not the engine flywheel. The...

Your last sentence is true. But it also does have a lower energy content. Not directly due to its octane rating but a result of getting the octane rating. Most, if not all, additives that provide...

True. Higher octane fuel has a lower energy content. Higher octane fuel doesn't produce more power, it prevents detonation (or at least helps defer it). It will also decrease fuel economy (again,...

:D

Yeah, I see lots of people selling the 75/35 with part number 9022-091 (the 75/25 P/N is 8022-091), but it is not a current Optima offering. I guess the 75/25 becomes a 75/35 if you install it...

Michael, the 75/25 and the 75/35 both have the side connectors (the 75 part of the nomenclature). The difference between the 25 and 35 (or the 75/25 & 75/35) are the relative positioning of the + &...

And the Exige seats. Apparently you need 6-point belts to keep you in the seat in those high-G turns on those sticky tires.

Doubling from 1 to 2, and 2 to 4, and 4 to 8 is pretty easy. 8 more doublings, not so much. Take a piece of paper, any piece of paper, and double it 8 times.

By the time we get to 100% solar...

Versions 7.1.2 and earlier are vulnerable. I assume, since it said there were no updates available, that you are on the latest release of version 7, which is 7.1.3.
