    Gear Lock in PUNTO

    Hi All,

    I have heard that the gear lock in PUNTO can only be fitted in Neutral gear. I don't think or no one care if this can only be done in Neutral gear.

    So, is their any jugaad to have it in any forward/reverse gear.

    My Car drives best when I have less fuel

    I have been experiencing a strange behavior for sometime now.
    When I have less fuel say 7-10 litre left my car, it drives the best. The NVH is less, pickup and power delivery becomes very smooth.
    I could not find any rationale behind this. May be the residual diesel is more pure ? But my knowledge says it should be the opposite
    i.e, in adulterated fuel the impurities should settle at the bottom, so this doesn't justify.

    Then why my car feels much free revving while driving with less fuel ?
    Is there anything to do with the fuel pump which works smoother with less fuel in the tank ?
    Does it indicate some kind of problem in the fuel tank/pump etc ?

    I like to know whether anyone experienced the same ?

    My Linea feels the same irrespective of the amount of fuel present.

    Where can i get a T45 torx bit spanner for cheap.

    I have a force Ratchet kit similar to the one Sat linked above but it has bits only upto T40.

    Both the brake calliper and the Engine oil drain bolt are T45. Who i get non socket/no ratchet type single pieces for T45?

  9. Power to weight ratio change.

    I doubt that Sat. Here is my reasoning:

    Tank capacity - 45 lts. If 10 lts are still left, then that is 35 lts less, a weight reduction of approximately 26 kg.
    Unladen weight of Linea MJD is 1185. Add 35 kg for a full tank. Then it would be 1220 kg. Power is 90 HP.
    So, the power to weight ratio would be 0.033 hp/kg
    From this if we reduce the weight of 35 lts, then the weight would be 1194 kg.
    The new power to weight ratio would be 0.034 hp/kg.
    I have not even considered the weight of the driver, as that is a constant :D

    Would such a small difference be noticeable? I think the problem lies somewhere else. Fuel pump, maybe? Also, considering that he has been driving this car for 4 years now, I am sure he would have noticed this behaviour from day one, right?
