  16. Unexpected automotive benefit

    A few months ago after a service the Honda garage told mum her cars air-conditioning needed recharging, we were in no rush so left it a bit before deciding to proceed. Not surprisingly the air con was revived, cooling was much faster and more effective but over the past few tank refills we've also noted a significant increase in range. With hindsite this shouldn't be surprising as I know the air-con unit puts a heavy load on the engine burning fuel, so if the coolant escapes or degrades the pump is going to be working that much harder burning more fuel to achieve less. It wasn't however anything I'd really thought about and I didn't expect there to be an obvious improvement in mpg. Now as I wasn't monitoring consumption before and after I have no stats to give so this is only "As it seems to me" rather than scientific fact. But if you have an old car with air conditioning it may well be worth having it checked out.

  27. Cheddar Cakes

    These are a sort of potato cake made with Cheddar cheese. 2 large potatoes 100g or more REAL Cheddar cheese (the stuff with a rind on, not the muck that comes in rectangular blocks) Chopped parsley to suit your taste Salt & pepper 1 teaspoon onion powder Little bit of milk to bind, if necessary 1 egg, beaten flour to dredge breadcrumbs to coat. Cook the potatoes in the microwave until soft (remember to prick the skins first to stop any possible explosions). Remove the skin and mash together with the other ingredients (not the egg, flour or crumbs) to form a firm mouldable mixture. Form by hand into small cakes or rolls, coat with flour, egg then breadcrumbs and fry in shallow fat until nicely browned. Edit: you can, of course, cook the potatoes in a conventional oven but avoid boiling them - that will give excessive moisture and make them difficult to form into cakes.
