  4. diesel gauge gone bonkers again?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Right, didn't use the car for the whole weekend, and the computer just gave me the warning of low fuel (last 50 miles or so) when I parked. I went to take the car this morning and the gauge signed 0!! I know I'm getting senile, but not that much, so I gently drove to the closest garage and put...

I have charged the battery which had gone a little flat due to not...

    General Alfa Discussion
    My neighbour has a chip on her shoulder about a laurel hedge I planted on the front garden. It is losing a lot of leaves as only planted 3 months ago (mature plant) - new shoots are now thankfully growing. Ironically I wanted a fence, talked it over, she refused (not that this would affect my...
