    what grinds your gears

    So far as I am aware there is no way to "Conserve" water - It can change it's state from ice, to liquid or vapour and can be saltwater or freshwater or dirty water or potable water but i really don't see how you can conserve it. A bit like "Saving" life really - A life is a life, all we can do...

    How Long Have You Had a Vehicle Battery Last?

    Position of the battery on a vehicle can affect how long it lasts - Not many Ford Tractor batteries on the rack directly over the heat of the engine would do 5 years - And the DB ones bouncing about in front of the radiator weren't a lot better...Certainly had 2 x 6V EXIDE over the back axle...
