Re: Question about Oil Dilution

Any chance that we could see the whole publication now that you've whetted our appetites? It would be very useful for people like this nurse who is metaphorically - probably literally - banging her head against a wall after being missold a diesel Evoque. The denials of responsibility expressed are ...

Taxpayer to guarantee £500m JLR loan

Shorting stock is a bit rich for my tastes, I think someone might have been watching too much Billions. In any case, thanks to JLR's mis-management and lack of market foresight, the TTM stock is trading close to a 15-year low at just $11.34 at close of business today. How would anyone who didn't al...

A SCRF needs to be mated with an upstream DOC and DEF injection and this is what's depicted in the JLR parts schematic. On the face of...
