Not sure where the oil is going to be honest Nige which is slightly worrying lol. Garage told me it would be the variator. Theres no leaks or nothing and its only really supping it when on the motorway, no smoke or anything tho. But yeah from york to leeds and back and then 90 miles to the lakes i need to fill it up with two litres - costing a fotune lol so it needs something doing. May wait and get the variator done in a few thousand miles when cambelt needs doing. Well you have a good time in Hawaii and make sure you get an aisle seat. Ive never flown in any class other than economy - it helps not knowing what im missing lol. You have a good time mate and i hope all your family enjoys it too.
Yes, something about a seal on the Variator going and so losing/burning oil but not sure about this. Hopefully all will be sorted with the belt job.
Gotta have an aisle seat trickki, hate being hemmed in ! If I'm travelling on BA always go Premium economy if available. Small cabin, bigger seats and better service, well worth the extra. IIRC pricewise it's about half the extra needed for Business class but I usually " pay " with air miles so don't worry too much. Once priced up Business Class from Muscat to Seattle and .......
Hope you get things sorted, I'll think about sunny North Yorks and you whilst swigging something exotic on a beach in Hawaii, assuming I survive the much dreaded meeting with the ex !!!!
Catch you later.
