    Hybrid Conversion Kits

    No Wayne I don't think they would mate because to be frank they are in cahoots with the likes of Shell etc which means they would lose a huge amount of money if vehicles did over 100 mpg instead of 20-50. This is the bit of kit costs about 370 quid http://www.hydrogenhybrids.uk.com

    Car died!

    Carbon wrap is lovely stuff! lol just spoke with a chap who does ECU Remaps he reckons he could Remap to 170 BHP whilst at the same time increasing the MPG to 65 Mpg on regular motorway driving. But before he charges for it he will take a look first. Said it will cost 250 + VAT
