Unfortunately lard is anathema to our vegan friends and is no longer socially acceptable. Have you considered adding a sprinkling of agar agar powder instead? This will thicken the oil and should avoid the dripping.

Great idea Ron, I must experiment with that and the banana skins too. It could add another perfume to her exhaust gases, and the Metro.

Re: Original South Wales

Another suggestion of something that’s all the rage nowadays it seems: quinoa got to be a way to use that, maybe along with some almond milk.

Tell you what, you post your comments on the sheep’s poo and sunflower oil and I’ll do the same for seaweed and bacon.

Re: Original South Wales

I was in my school's Air Training Corps and in uniform during a maths class.
With withering sarcasm the old maths master drawled, "Greenhill, all you'll be good for in the airforce is wheeling out drums of petrol."

Total mileages since oil change: 4,350 km = 2700 mi

Oil level now: Not bad for an old bird, but as useless as Google for oil spot navigation. Buy a hard copy road map and follow signage to destination.
When you visit Oz, forget about Google navigation in rural areas, it is completely unreliable and can send you hundreds of kms in the wrong direction.

My latest car doesn't have one of those stick things in the engine

Re: Original South Wales

Beag', All you'll need is a paper road map and simply follow the inverted signage from town to town.
