Re: Seat Covers

Escape gear for the win:) I am on my second set (second patrol). They wash easily and comfortable in hot weather. I am an aircon off, window open type in the bush so they take a beating.

Re: Knock sensor code 0325 and overfueling

So patrol is sorted and I am fuming... seriously pissed off. The cause of the missing was two loose coils packs, missing screws and plugs loose. When the patrol was services before the trip I had the sparkplugs replaced. The @#@!$# that did the job must have not put the plugs from the coils back cor...
