Here is someone's point of view concerning Ethanol in modern fuels:
I disagree that equal amounts of water in fuel is detrimental in a E20 mix compared to an Ethanol free mix.
I think he is using E95 in some of his negative E10 examples.
This turned into a bit of a mission.
Couldn't get the alarm to work by wiring in a separate horn. Problem was a combination of courtesy light and horn wiring, in conjunction with the FIA kill switch which I couldn't get to the bottom of. Ended up adding additional independent door switches, siren and live direct to battery, so not effected by the kill switch. Connected the switch wires from the alarm and it works.
Next problem was trying to get the wireless switch to work. The wireless switch needs a live but so does the alarm. Initially I thought because the on/of switch wire from the alarm connects to the live inside the alarm, I could remove the direct live from the battery to the alarm and connect it to the positive side of the wireless switch, and an earth from the car body to the negative of the wireless switch, thinking that when the switch was activated it would send power through the load connections on the wireless switch, to the live terminal of the alarm. The wireless switch activated with the key fob , with a click, but the alarm wont work. A test bulb showed power was switching on and off at the live contact at the alarm, but wouldn't sound.
I then wired the live from the battery directly to the alarm, taking a live feed from the same wire, to power the wireless switch. Again the wireless switch works, but the alarm wouldn't sound.
Today I wired the wireless switch Pos/Neg to a spare motorcycle battery, and had the alarm powered separately from the car battery. Connecting the alarm switch wires to the wireless switch, and it worked? Well the door/boot/bonnet all set the siren off, but for some reason the pendulum, activated by movement wouldn't set the alarm off.
Just to do my brain in a bit more I added an LED light connected to the wireless switch using the same terminals as the alarm switch wires. When the alarm was activated with everything close the LED flashed so I had a way to see it was armed. Alarm activate when door opend deactivate the alarm with the key fob, and LED stopped. This was until I opened a door with the alarm off, the LED still flashes. So as it stands, If I was to use the key switched supplied, everything will work as it should. Trying to add a wireless switch may just be a bit to much for my brain to work out. I have a feeling it could be the 60's alarm electrics with mini coils and contact switches, not cooperating with today's electronics, or more likely I am missing something.

Still trying to see the 'magic bean' shae of Brooklands...
Well..... a GT6 swing spring would be a move in the right direction, but I think still not enough.
Vit saloon probably weighs less than a convertible, plus you can get 4 people and a lot more luggage in a Vitesse.

Republic of Ireland spent 850K on their track-n-trace phone app, and it works. BoJo siphoned off 11M into Dominic's friends companies and we got nothing usable. (For technical reasons that software people like me pointed out at the start of the project) Meanwhile the Germans published their app source online for anyone to use.
I have a soft spot for "Led By Donkeys"
This may not find many applications around the car, but ma be useful elsewhere. I know I've sworn more at peices of tile I'm trying to cut than many other materials. It's a hole saw, that will cut through tiles or glass. Alleged to have a diamond coating, but at less than £20 Inc. delivery for a set of 20 drills, I beg to doubt that.
I have a Dendrobium orchid growing and trying to escape its pot. I was advised tthat it should be repotted into a glass or translucent container, as its roots like the light, so I bought a cheap, recycled glass vase - and then thought about drainage holes! Some investigation led me to these hole saws, and some demonstration videos online that showed them being successful. So, I gave them a try, and they really work! Need to be lubricated with water while drilling, so I did it in the sink, with a length of hose pipe rigged to do so - without shorting the drill!
Here's the result. A neatly perforated glass vase, three glass plugs, to throw away carefully, and I hope, a happy orchid!
