In order to get back on topic and stop the radiator-heat exchanger discussion, I would go for Russian Sage.

Now, that is my sage advice.

My one problem is that distance keeps me from my Elan. (36/5395)

Car Radiators (the simple theory):

If your fan is not working or your radiator is not big enough or the fins are clogged with flies & mud or the tubes are clogged with corrosion debris then the coolant boils in traffic jams and the magic white steam escapes and your engine stops working, forever.

Being a plumbing and heating engineer all I can say is all the top efficient air conditioners, fridges, radiators, heat pumps and boilers all have alli heat exchangers, some of the air conditioning plant is amazing

Dear oh dear, I'm amazed at how ill-informed some of you are.
It's well known that those hats must be made of tin foil.
Tin foil is an element of the alloy unobtanium.
Aluminium foil only provides minimal or possibly no protection from alien radio beams.

Beam us up Mr. Spock, we're in trouble down here!

Damn; Crusty: they've rumbled us. :roll:

Please post address for suppliers for genuine tinfoil, or has that gremlin-faced Robbie Williams bloke cornered the market?

Evidently, since the above incident, my local cops have either worn tin helmets, or not bothered to go out at night, in case they might see something; or in fact, anything. :roll:

Conclusive proof, I'd say.
