One of our ‘older’ drivers has a TX4 with a water leak ( turned out to be his heater matrix and a small leak in the main radiator) with the weather being so cold and not being able to book it in for repairs until this week, he’s been topping it up with antifreeze bought from the local Morrison’s garage. He asked me about a strange smell in the cabin, it was very strong and not the usual hot antifreeze smell. After telling him I’m not sure, he thought he’d top the radiator up while we were looking under the bonnet, imagine my surprise when he presented a 10L container of ADBLUE that he been using! #-o #-o #-o
