My last experience with Ctek was poor. Would NEVER turn on the 'fully charged' led unless I disconnected and reconnected it. Ctek said that was normal - none of my other makes of charger does this, they all switch from charging to full by themselves.
You have done very well getting a battery to last that long! At least ours dont need a battery box fan like some Jags.

I've changed the battery for a "Yuasa" with a larger cranking current & we'll see how it goes. OK so far, but Hazel still doesn't like waking up very much!

Just a totally different thought - should 'Tobacco Leaf' be officially renamed 'Autumn Gold'? :)

It's very brown inside too with a Sandalwood interior, but it's just sooo inviting! ;)

I really ought to have some brown flared cords to go with it :LOL:

A shot of Hazel on the North Yorkshire Moors; the same place my avatar picture was taken:

Lovely though this car is, I'm still on my midlife crisis hunt for a replacement Alfa :oops:

Well, the Alfa is bought & I'm looking forward to starting on it very soon. As for Hazel.... she's far too good to let go & is regularly providing transport for me whist OCC & BOP are off the road (more about the latter another time).

There's something about this car; it just feels like it's made from one piece & has the comfiest seats by a country mile, so if I do sell one, it may be BOP, we'll see...

A work trip last week; lovely weather, countryside & car :cool::
