    Retail cost of kindling per KG?

    The price paid for chip for biomass has jumped up recently this has to have an effect on clean softwood available. Last year the supermarkets were selling kindling cheap at around a £1 a kilo . This year I see Tesco selling small bags around 1.5 kilos for £2.99 we have held our price for 3 years at £1.80 for 3.7 kilos but our timber source is drying up so the only way we will survive is to pay more for the raw material and increase our price. I would say £2.30 is about right . If we can’t get that sort of money I will shut down but I think a lot of others already have that is why we have been so manically busy recently

    Selling poplar as firewood

    The first load of pop I had burned nearly as well as the beech. The second load I used was awful so now I don’t take the chance now. Both were as well seasoned as each other

    300 TDi fuel stop solenoid help!

    I have the same solinoid on my bobcat Peugeot engine first one lasted 15 years now I seem to need a new one every few years I think I get them from hella. The other thing to do and this is even more important on the later td5 is don't run around on empty all the time as the fuel gets hotter as it passes through the engine and empty tank heats up more and quicker than a full one
  15. Had an 80 series LC about year 2000 but actually found front axle unreliable compared to my current 100 series. Had a low mileage 3 year old disco 4 one of the nicest vehicle I have owned but zero reliability will never be on my list in future. i would say an 04-06 year 100 series LC would be your best bet. 04 onwards they got the better dash and 5 speed auto box. Make sure it's rust free some go to rot others are perfect. If you get one with hydraulic active suspension when it breaks spend £1500 and put it back on coils. rated for towing 3.5 tonnes but 4.5 tonnes in other countries so up to the job. Strong engine for towing and 25 mpg when solo. Plenty of leg head and arm room. pattern parts are a lot more available now as well
