Lucie had an unexpected blip this month when I rolled her out of the garage and she ran for about 10 seconds and then would not start again. I primed the carburetor but there was no pressure on the primer and she was not making any attempt to fire at all. After checking for a spark I thought, she’s run out of petrol. So I jumped into my Jag, visited the local petrol station and filled a can full of fuel. Once that was poured into Lucie I again began to prime the carburetor and after a few presses the usual pressure was there. I gave her a tiny bit of choke, turned the ignition key and bingo, she fire up. Having fuel does help. So for the first time in ages she went to the local garage and was treated to £10 worth of fuel. The fuel gauge always reads full, no matter what, so I must look at that one day. Unlike July, Lucie spent a few weekends pootling around Tamworth. The insurance was also up this month, hard to believe that I have had her 4 years already and so after a quick call to Peter James insurance to renew the insurance, Lucie remains fully road legal.
