  • Ask Smithy Xtra 91 Ford Maverick dual-fuel issues

    You’ve replaced the ignition system, so you need to look at the fuel supply. I would check the fuel pressure, the fuel pump, and make sure it’s getting enough fuel.

  • Going out on patrol

    THE MQ is really getting a little long in the tooth, so I would recommend you think about a GQ, though you will find it hard to fit one within your budget. Going by your description of the sort of driving you will be doing I would advise against the Patrol. It sounds like a very expensive way of getting to the city, ferrying the kids around and going shopping, with only an occasional weekend away. Go for a regular car -- it will be better suited to your needs and be less expensive to run. If you must go for a Patrol, buy the 4.2-litre petrol GQ.
