took you 3hrs to do 155miles

I would get mid 50's in the boat and would do that in 2hrs or less. And probably more entertaining for that particular trip

Any car is eco friendly when do that sort of speed

Re: Wildlife Camera

whatever you spend on a body expect to spend up to 2 times as much on glass if not more always go second hand for lens at the high end For wildlife get the Tamron 150- 600 - around £700 new or £500 2nd hand http://www.wexphotographic.com/tamron-150-600mm-f5-63-sp-di-vc-usd-lens-nikon-fit-1547624/?mk...

Re: Exhaust valve help!

Open by default on startup

As long as the engine is off you can unplug

You can also see the flap inside the tail pipe if you are in doubt
