    Fuel lines

    It was a Jaguar XJ V12 with Lucas injection. In front of a traffic light the driver smelled gasoline-like… We're not gonna be kidding about Lucas.

    E10 gasoline ... and a Zeeland weekend

    Diesel out the door

    Diesel is nowadays suspicious, even objectionable. The particulate matter from diesel engines is a threat to just about everything. No particle filter or shabby electronics will help with that. By reasoning clearly, administrators and the government have made this clear. We classic enthusiasts are also saddled with that realization. And soon we can't go anywhere, drive or be like More

    The difficult gasoline story

    Gasoline is a volatile, flammable petroleum derivative. For people interested in the deeper backgrounds of this matter, we recommend purchasing “Lucky Luke in the shadow of the derricks”.

    Ethanol killers ...

    Demand for ethanol killers is rising as European governments decide that Euro95 will disappear at the pump. Filling stations only offer (green) E10 at the pump, that is fuel with 10% ethanol. CLASSIC CARS AND ETHANOL Classic car owners are stirring because this is not good news for them. Ethanol breaks down quickly More

    Verkeerd afgelopen? A nest of Mercedessen

    Verkeerd afgelopen or just 'about'. We had seen them before, but then the 'photo moment' was missing. Because it didn't look like the cars were going to disappear like two or three, we went there one more time. On the 'Zone Industrielle' of Zelhem, only 550 km from Paris and free More
