I have no idea how wages compared from then till now, but assuming wages increased at the same pace as prices, give or take, then petrol was slightly cheaper in 1965. Which may be down to lack of green taxes back then, purchase tax v VAT and the like.

Be interesting to see what happens if significantly lower residuals were to feed through at the end of current PCP deals. I'm sure the finance companies buy indemnity insurance to cover shortfalls, but any serious problems might dent their ability to do this in future.

Go to a cashback site like Topcashback and get a quote. Don't go to a price comparison site on Topcashback!

It's worth trying several comparison sites to find the best site for your own set of circumstances. If you punch your details into 3 or 4 of these sites, you will get 3 or 4 different premiums - and from all the exact same companies.

Sadly, for me the Topcashback compare works out more expensive than the cheapest, even with the cashback taken off. Confused seems to be the cheapest for me recently, I insured the Galaxy this year for 149, with class 1 business use.

My 4/4d a gallon equates to 4.29 a gallon today, so cheaper but not a huge difference.

Don't understand...what am I missing ?

An ELM327 device should work with EML codes and live data from the engine, all cars sold in the EU have to have this compatibility - although the particular device has to be compatible with the protocol used by the Honda.

However, that's all the generic devices will do - no SRS, ABS, etc.

To do all the car systems, you will need a genuine Honda HDS diagnostic system, or one of the clones suggested by TG in the other thread.

Same here, long screwdriver on the bone behind the ear, squeeze the ear canal shut with the handle. Served me well for 30-odd years.

This is a lot shot, is pre-detonation (pinking) from loss of spark at the back bank of plugs a possibility? I know the two plugs fire sequentially, so maybe... I don't know. Pinking can be affected by intake air temperature... but should definitely be worse under load.

Mind you if I remember correctly, fuel was around 4 gallons to 1, a might different to today!

How did average wages compare though ? We did an exercise with some of the older guys at work when I was younger,  basically the question was  'how many hours did you need to work to buy some basic commodities' and some surprising answers,  mostly stuff was cheaper than it used to be,  but there was just more stuff available for people to buy.

On another thread I mentioned a trip, as a passenger, I had taken in a CVT Jazz. In short they seem well suited to driving in an urban setting but I felt it struggled elsewhere and was a bit whiny. I am pretty sure I wouldn't have one although I guess you need to drive it rather than just being a passenger.

I notice Toyota are having a big advertising campaign for the latest Yaris Hybrid (also CVT) and it seems very heavily slanted towards urban driving.

More than ever, and I guess it's a good thing, we have cars aimed at specific situations and markets. The choice out there is better than ever.
