    If only Vauxhall would supply some sort of book, with useful information like that included. Would save so much bother. They could even give you some sort of drawer thing in the dash to hold it. Then all you'd have to do is open that drawer, take out the book, and all the info you'd need would be there!

    I think I'll go patent it. Maybe I'll call it a handbook. And the drawer thing a glovebox, because you could put your gloves in there as well.

    If your fully loaded id say between 34-36, anymore than that is just excessive in my opinion.

    Under normal load, i used to have my 1.8 at 32psi all round.

    Cheers Pete/Barkzz.

    ZS - already been patented sorry pity they missed the bit about putting relevant info in it like tyre pressures. I might patent the idea of ink in a plastic cartidge and see if that catches on.

    There is a book, it comes with the car
    Sadly they often get misplaced or disposed of in error
    Equally, they get swapped for the wrong ones, or none at all, as they change ownership

    However, there is a sticker in the fuel flap where you can write your tyre pressures
    Use a permanent marker, job done
