    ... and you did WHAT to your TL today?

    Well I've just cleaned my commute scoot. Filled the TL with fuel to check the newly installed tank and filter mod for leaks ... perfect! Fired her up .... lovely. Polished the Daytona and it's still only 09:30 .... postie arrives bearing gifts .....

    Finally the missing gear lever from MFW ..... great bit of kit. Quick coffee and I'll go fit it!!!

    The force is strong in this one!

    Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.

    D'ya know what I was really impressed with the reworking of the vehicle taxation process. It brings a great deal of efficiency to the process. For once they've come up with a useful change ... No tax disc required. Tax costs a little less if you go for the six months variety. SORN has been simplified too. Like the fact that it takes a couple of minutes online to get tax sorted. All good! Better if they just scrapped it all together though.

    Another day then. This day requires me scanning eBay for a later model thermostat housing now that I have the prescribed pump cover. Nothing coming up yet though. Actually I'll check with Mick Douch he's normally got a bunch of stuff. Do you guys know him? He breaks TLS's ... he's provided me with some great bits over the last few months ... good bloke to deal with too.

    Still think they should have put it straight on to fuel. If you have bought fuel, you've paid tax, if you do more miles you pay more tax, if your vehicle is a fuel guzzler you pay more tax.

    Simples.
    You hear that? That's the sound of money exploding!

    That'd be my preferred option ... then everyone pays ... and you can get rid of a whole unwieldy lump of bureaucracy and civil servant types.
