We are always a little wary of fuel treatment potions. If these things all ‘worked’ then wouldn’t we all be using them? For vehicles with older engines, however, it is certainly the case that today’s modern emission regulations can be difficult to achieve when the time comes for the MOT. It may make sense, therefore, to at least try these new Magic Bullet options available from Euro Car Parts as they are aimed at reducing emissions. The range also includes two options to clean catalytic convertors for both diesel and petrol engine vehicles.
This new awning from Rhino-Jack, the Foxwing Eco 2.1 is ideal for small and medium SUVs. It is simple to mount and then swings out from the rear and side of your vehicle, offering no less than 270degs of shade. Given that it was originally designed for Australia, that makes a lot of sense, for those of us living in the soggy UK, you’ll be pleased to know that it is also waterproof so works well to allow you to sit outside when the weather turns. Made from lightweight polyester, with a UV protective polyutherene coating, the extension poles are anodised aluminium and therefore rustproof. Rhino-Jack has a great range of off-road accessories and all are available from the guys at TBR Accessories, so give them a call on 0800 169 9946 / 01832 275396 or check out the website for more details.
As we are mentioning the coming colder months here, it will also mean shorter days and a lot less sunlight. Working on a vehicle in the afternoon - especially when you are underneath it! – can be difficult, and a head torch can be an ideal accessory. Of course, these are also a ‘must have’ for all people thinking of travelling overland, and to be honest great to have even if you are just venturing to a UK campsite. If you are going to get one, then we have no problem recommending this one from ARB, it’s a 5W LED headlamp, fully adjustable and will run for a claimed seven hours. It comes complete with three AAA batteries and has a RRP of £24. Further details and your local distributor can be found on the Arbil 4x4 website.
This recent hot weather does bring with it the odd thunderstorm and if you are caught out driving in a heavy rainfall it can be an alarming experience. There seems to be too much water falling and the wipers often don’t seem able to cope. There is a cheap and highly effective way to aid your vision. Armor All produce a product called Shield for Glass and it has an amazing affect of almost ‘repelling’ the water. It’s used by a lot of motorsport enthusiasts when caught in a rainstorm while racing. Trust us, it works! Available at a lot of motor suppliers or you can call 0845 602 1995 for find your nearest supplier.
The trend to capture on camera your off-road exploits is a growing one. You can see budding film directors following the exploits of friends and family at many a Pay ‘n’ Play day. If this is something you fancy, and would like a ‘driver’s eye view’ of what’s happening then you really need a decent clamp to hold your camera steady… and often that’s not your co-driver bouncing alongside! RAM has some new action camera mounts that solve this problem. We have used a RAM mount before and can confirm that they are certainly rigged and well built, made from marine-grade aluminium, with durable composite plastics and the company’s patented shock-absorbent rubber coated adjustable ball sockets. These things can be fitted to roll cages, windscreens or any flat edge. The range of mounts is comprehensive, check out the website.
