Managed to recover this much from another thread. Maybe with people cutting various parts out to point and laugh at, we could rebuild the entire post... Ah man, he's deleted his original post! Booooooooooooo! Thats such a classic it should be there for everone to see...stop....point and laugh at this moron!
It has no extra weight in the car, all glove compartments, cubby holes
and the boot is empty. The rear exhaust may or may not add power. It
has only ever run on Optimax, I know you get more boost out if this fuel on bigger engined cars but every little helps. The tyres are always inflated to 38 PSI to give extra grip and less tyre slouch. Often I put the rear seats flat, this reduces weight.
(Like why you crawl flat across a frozen pond so as not to break the
ice). I regularly drive with around ?10 of fuel, again weight saving,
and often I use engine cleaner in the fuel load to remove debris from
the fuel injectors. The car is always clean improving aerodynamic progress.
