Years ago I bought a house with an old oil heater tank, still half full. So I put a few litres into every full tank of my old beetle until it was all gone. Car ran fine.

Sorry for my typo. Unfortunately the forum doesn't allow edits as far as I'm aware, to thread titles.

Hi OT,
thanks, that confirms my thoughts. I'm looking forward to it. Also it will be a C172, which I've never flown, but I'm familiar with the 152. I'm told it's similar.

That report possibly doesn't take local govt into account. They can be the pits.
