  • Bob replied to the topic Sticking throttle in MGF/TF Pitstop
    I'm with John I had the same problem with my TF.

    So I installed a new cable as I had the same issue as you do with the engine idling erratically. Made no difference.

    Turned out is was the peddle sticking.

    Sorry Mike I didn't have that problem when I did mine. perhaps the damper has opened a bit?

    Can you compress the unit slightly with a jack when you install it?

  • Bob replied to the topic Tyre recommendations in The T Bar
    The short answer is it hepls with the car over steering if you loose control.

    Although if you have a Mk2 MGF VVC it is recommended to have all four tyres the same size and profile.

    Might get them cheaper if you search. I've swapped them in the past.

    You'll need a bearing press and suitable sleve to press them out.

  • Bob replied to the topic E10 fuel in MGF/TF Pitstop
    Not my words but this was in an email from a retailer I buy parts from Discount MG Rover spares. I found it very useful.

    We've all seen the uproar the move to E10 petrol seems to have caused - so we thought we'd clear things up a little.

    It's worthy of note that while we've done a lot of research on the topic, the information below is put together purely as a 'helping hand' and your own judgment should be used.

    It's no secret that MG Rover were a pioneering company and liked to 'push the envelope' when it came to technological advances - and the good news is that this approach was taken when it came to Ethanol-containing fuels too.
    Europe moved to E10 petrol many years ago, and with their finger on the pulse as usual MG Rover (along with Land Rover) made sure that all vehicles from 1996 onwards were compatible with E10.
    Land Rover have formally confirmed this on the Government website - however with MG Rover long gone there's no official way for the Government to confirm this and publish the information online.

    The good news is that Land Rover used the K Series and KV6 engine from 1996 in the Freelander - along with a very similar fuel system and many shared components.
    This, along with one of the ex-chief engineers for MG Rover confirming the compatibility of the new fuel when the UK launch was confirmed, means that any MG Rover from 1996 onwards will be absolutely fine to run on E10.

    Any MG Rover made before 1996 is a trickier topic - while there weren't many changes made to the fuel system before and after this date, it's possible that the seals used aren't designed to be Ethanol-resistant.
    We would recommend sticking with either E5 (Super unleaded will continue to be E5) or using a fuel-stabilising additive designed to help older cars run on E10 when filling.

    Again, the information above is put together from the data available to us - but we are confident any MG Rover from 1996 onwards will be fine using E10.
