Car check time!

It's decidedly not warm out there today. Yesterday was gloriously sunny and warm, and yet today is gloriously sunny and cold. WTF, British weather?

Anyway, car check time! Last time I posted this was um, February, but I have still been doing the monthly checks, promise! Today the tyre pressures were all spot on (aside from the spare, but I can't be bothered to dig out the compressor for 0.05 bar's worth). Tyre wear on the fronts also seems to be more even these days so I'd call my experiment of slightly under-inflating them a success! Oil-wise, the level was sitting at around 2/3rds so I fed it most of the remaining 500ml. The oil consumption does seem to be a bit higher than last year but it's still well within expectations.

I have spotted what may be a leak on the filler neck of the windscreen washer fluid bottle which is annoying, though I only say maybe - yesterday when filling it the screenwash frothed up and coated everywhere with bubbles so it might be residue from that. I'll have to keep an eye on it, though since it's at the top of the bottle it's only an issue when filling it.

Mileage wise... well in February I did all of 427.3 miles, March was a bit more at 684.9 miles but April is yet another new record with 989.2 miles. Still not reached one thousand miles in a month, though the odometer has now ticked over past 60,000 miles (of which 11,000 are mine).
