The manufacturers of my car say it must run on Unleaded Petrol. What do I have to do to find someone who will tell me I can fill it with diesel?

Just ask in a forum John ;)


Go on fill it with a more expensive fuel and watch you bank balance shrink :LOL:

Red light, so bird in front of me stops; fair enough.
Light turns green, but traffic from opposite directions, so no turning right yet; fair enough.
Traffic gone, light still green, no movement. :rolleyes:
BEEEEEEEEEEEP
Car moves :D
About 10 inches.
Sound of startermotor. :rolleyes:

To OP it would not have anything to do with the fact it will cost you a fair bit of money to put down a 7 inch liner that you are choosing to believe the guy who says 10 inch is ok.

Too big a flue is just as bad as too small a flue, basically for a gas fire the fumes cool down too much and you dont get a proper draw , causing spillage of products which then get taken back into the combustion process and then the CO builds up and DEATH occurs within 30 mins.
But hey why bother with manufacturers advice when you can save a few bob

For what it's worth, I don't blame the op for ensuring that her money is spent wisely. If she has been given conflicting advice and presumably prices, then why spend more than may be necessary? However, it is essential that the manufacturers instructions are adhered to, since any deviation will invalidate any warranty, quite apart from the fact that the manufacturer will have had to demonstrate that their requirements for installation are the most efficient and safe before they can put it on the market, especially when the appliance is gas fuelled.

So op, they don't sit about the office, design something that looks pretty and then say "well, I guess that a 7" liner will do the trick - anyone else got any better guess". They do tend to use knowledge and expertise which they have acquired through experience and training and repeated testing, and not a vague recollection of something they learnt in their O levels. It's not a point of pride or principle, more a point of careful and accurate calculations with safety and efficiency utmost in their minds. They do know what they're talking about, and I'll bet if you ever got a chance to see their design specifications, the maths would convince you that there's more to it than meets the eye.

Ideal have made many boilers since the classic, and they don't seem to learn a whole lot from their mistakes.
Unless a lot of their shareholders are RGI's that specialise in repairs.

Oh! Apart from any mechanical or electric failures, do you consider any of their boilers as unsafe and/or their installation specs to be dangerous and inadequate? Which is the point I'm referring to.
