May I suggest a larger tank to keep that pesky light form coming on....??

Might want to keep an eye on your neighbors too. I remember the story about a guy that bought a new VW beetle and bragged about the great gas mileage he was getting. His neighbors were putting a little gas in it every night for months before he got wise to it.

I found a 23gal tank at the jy a few months ago, unfortunately those blowhards put a hole in it. Still stuck with the stock 19.x gal tank

That would be nice. With neighbors like that, who needs friends?

Checked for rattling sound earlier underneath my 300e. Found out it was the top cover of my catalytic convertor. Did a temporary fix of putting a thick dynamat type of tape around the cover not on the cat itself. It seems to have done the job and fix the rattling. Will have to schedule re-welding of top cover of catalytic convertor at the muffler shop by next week.

How about you, Shady? It sounds like you just used one up on that incident. How is your cholesterol, BTW?

The way you drive, it might be a good idea to get a fire extinguisher system and roll cage built into that vehicle, along with Nomex suits, 5 point harnesses, and full face helmets for you and your passengers.

Cholesterol? What's that?

I'm no badass, but I do have a huge death wish, upon which I acted - and almost succeeded - a couple of decades ago. Try as I might, I just can't seem to use up those lives...

The short drive between the border and Tabuk was fairly smooth. The said bumps were in or near some towns along Jordan's route 15 between Ma'an and Amman. The cop in the back seat had his head smashed into the ceiling a couple of times, but he wasn't too vocal about it; he probably thought I'd kick his ass out if he said anything.

Was at a street crossing for the local church and was run by Ga state patrol. Trooper waved me forward, told me I had a funny looking radiator on the front of my car, smiled, gave a thumbs up and waved me through before any of the other lanes

I have LED dome lights in my volvo wagon, they work great. 42mm 'festoon' (tubular bulbs that lookk like fuses), https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...d-festoon/662/

I went for 'warm white' as the cool white are too cold and bluish.

I had my O2 sensor and brake fluid replaced. Brakes much better now and seems more stable idle. Let's see if the fuel usage is better the coming period...

Tonight I will try to replace the ovp relay, got a brand new mb ovp relay from the dealer )

What did you do with/to your 124 today?

So I just did the OVP relay!
Was pretty simple diy but ofcourse i dropped the screw behind the battery, sigh... had to remove battery lol but it all worked out!

Turns out it was already swapped in 2010, guess I'll keep it spare same product number but the 15 fuse seemed different and the pins are of diff material. Below some pictures

First time using my new worklight in the dark
