  2. Are you in Melville, Ontario or Melville near New York City, USA ,,,, If Ontario, there are several good diesel distributors in Belleville, Napanee or even Shannonville. I have refueled in all three Ontario locations and have never had fuel issues.
  3. Welcome to the club.
  4. @ caldense ..... Please try to keep your comments civil. This site exists for the people who enjoy their smarts. The OP mentioned that "all comments appreciated", so it is open season on comments that are meant to help him. He may or may not chose to use the advice given to him by Tolsen and LooseLugNuts, but that is his choice. Suggestions by both long time members are good suggestions and someone with even a minimum of talent should be able to perform either solution. IF he choses to ignore the suggestions is entirely up to GRP151. Insulting members in good standing is not an acceptable action.
  5. A nice clean looking smart. to the club.
  6. Just to clarify, I believe Sandie was asking about towing a smart behind a motorhome ......... not towing a motor home with it.
  7. 2005 Pulse (Blue with black) Called "Bruised" ....... Just 'cause it's black & blue 2006 Passion (Silver/silver) called "Silverwing"
  8. I had this happen a few months ago. It turned out to be the clutch actuator. ( It was fine once you could get it moving, but from a stand-still, trying to accelerate, it would bang "like a clutch trying to grab" and either stall or do a jack-rabbit start, making all sorts of horrible noises in the process )
  9. Good suggestion. Failing that, check your local car recyclers.
  10. What a good turn-out! The weather couldn't have been better with a beautiful fall day for a relaxed drive to the town of Ilderton. The temperatures were in the mid 20's (high 70's F) without a cloud in the sky. The guest of honour arrived just around 9:00pm. She was greeted with cheers of course and then a hand-shaking and hugs from most of us. Bill did a little 'presentation' which had everyone chuckling (loudly). Alberta will be leaving us soon for the land of the great orange pumpkin and we all wish her well. I took a few photos last night, some with the aid of our friendly server, Chris. Some of the photos will not be as clear due to using an ancient no-flash cell phone. Others were taking photos as well, so perhaps we will see more in the near future.
  11. to the club Vman. ....... Enjoy your stay
