Laddies,

got any idea where this came from? It is on the Plus 2 that resides in the garage. As you can see it doesn't have the flat surround either. Doesn't work.

Got a digital one built into the electronic dash board of my Renault Espace.

It means " If this reads below 3 degrees C this engine will not start, call the RAC"

The magic figure for my Lotus was 'below -10C' when the oil got too thick for a morning cold start :)

Just as well the bed was still warm....
