    Left to rot too I bet, into the carpet next to the bed where they fell about 10 years ago.

    I'm sure most of us know at least one person who lives alone and could easily be dead for several days before anyone noticed them missing.

  2. Sorry, forgot about this. Hope it is still of some use. Hole diameter one and five eighths inches as near as I could measure it. Width of top leaf two and a half inches. Would need to clear some junk out of the way to get more detailed measurements of the springs.

    A lot of vehicles also run a 20,000km or more service interval, although at work we still recommend 10k coz  no one ever checks their oil and they end up running out.

    Diesel RAV we have at work does this. We almost invariably have to top it up between services. The check engine light often starts to flick on with about 2000 km to go till the next scheduled service.

  4. Does diesel still work out less expensive if servicing costs are included in the calculations? Serious question. I've never owned anything with a diesel engine apart from one dodgy old tractor.
