    Of course you know what happens when you assume... ;)

    Gord could surprise me and could have had the UltraGauge calibrated on a number of vehicles. :D

    No matter... really good numbers even if expected of a diesel car.

    FCD but it’s pretty accurate (for a change) according to him.

    Thanks Bill and I keep the UltraGauge in the Audi (over 5 years now) and I had it in the Honda FRV before that for over 5 years. It’s been a decent bit of kit, never let me down :cool:

    Hi Gord. Your UltraGauge has been a bargain (amortized cost) and seems very repeatable with its measurements, and you're very motivated to have maintained the detailed logs all this time. Keep up the good work.

    All ccp coronavirus news is in the buried, ccp coronavirus thread & little ccp coronavirus information leaks out of that thread. However, ccp coronavirus is wrecking all avenues of World society.... even down to this website.
    To protest the major breaking knowledge that 1/3rd + million ccp coronavirus cases fired up in one day, because that information wasn’t restricted to one thread, is NOT a good protest.
    Again, my devotion to ccp coronavirus knowledge is evidenced by the length of that thread. The rare major milestones I report, outside that thread, is my devotion to you, that you can make decisions best for you & your families.

    litesong, I hear what you are saying, but I think you misunderstand how these forums (fora) work. New posts to any topic can generally be seen by anyone and everyone, so you may think your coronavirus thread is isolated (as it should be, ha-ha), we still can see the new posts. You do not have to advertise it and you do not have to contaminate (ha-ha) the other threads.

    I hope the above makes sense to you. Cross-posting serves no purpose other than to make readers unhappy.

    Lights consume power, although a relatively small amount.
