Now that it is sold may I ask why you parted ways with it so quickly?  Was it perchance too loud?   :187:

Hi Nick,
I have been considering a slip on. I quite like the look of the original but it is very quiet. There's loads of makes and styles out there. As someone who has already been down this route was the difference really worth the £700 quid or whatever it was? Looks are subjective so I will leave that to one side, but did you find any noticable difference in performance in either a +ve or -ve way? The standard dyno/ torque curves generally show a very well sorted motor. Would appreciate your thoughts.
Kind regards jon

Thanks Nick, appreciate your honesty. I will leave it as it is then with the standard can. Another good reason is that i have just come off the phone with the (heating oil) company and its just cost me £720 to fill the oil tank up outside!! Chuffing hell. If its this expensive in summer time gawd knows what it will be by next winter 😬

Short story:
In 1988 I bought a house in a village without gas.  I knew of a bungalow a few miles away being demolished & for £100 I bought the oil boiler & oil tank (half full of oil).   Yes I had to pump it out into borrowed barrels to get it home but I was young fit & skint !
Anyway, just wanted to say,  heating oil in 1989 summer prices was 8p per litre !  Seems unbelievable at today's prices........ :009:
I bought a second 300 gallon tank so I'd never have to buy oil in the winter when the price doubled........
