  1. Re: Automatic gearboxes and towing heavy loads

    I believe the conventional wisdom when towing with an auto box is to tow in the gear that is closest to a 1:1 ratio.

    Re: Trailer with axle to the rear

    Discounting the ball weight for the moment, the further back the axel the better the trailer tows and the more stable it is and the easier it is to reverse.

    Re: Lead acid minimum charge current

    A couple of hundred milliamps when you go into trickle charge. You are merely replacing the standby current of the inverter and internal battery losses.

    Re: Lead acid minimum charge current

    Generally it is 1/10 so 100Ah will be 10A charge. The charging current is determined by the temperature of the battery, you don't want the electrolyte temperature getting too high.

  9. Re: Filling station put paraffin in my car. What do I do?

    School me here.

    Would the two liquids not separate out based on their differing SG's. So the diesel will be consumed first followed by the paraffin and associated poor performance?
  10. Re: Filling station put paraffin in my car. What do I do?

    Indeed you are correct. However the paraffin should not have made it to his tank unless the tank was 100% paraffin, which means that there would have been many comebacks. An empty car comes in and is...
  11. Re: Filling station put paraffin in my car. What do I do?

    That means that their entire tank is filled with paraffin ??? this sound odd. Why I says this is because the way I see it is that the SG of paraffin is less than the diesel so it would float to the...
