LOOKING THROUGH our CM Road Test file the other day, I came across your road test of the ERF B-series with the Cummins lightweight 14-litre engine (July 18) Tim Blakemore reports that the lorry had a 30kg flowmeter on board. In fact our instrument used, the FMS Mk IIC with finne recirculation and de-aeration tank, tips the scales at 14.1kg. The remaining 16kg must be thi weight of the sturdy universal bracket and cover made by ERF in angle iron and sheet steel.
A similar system, but with plain tank weighs 12kg or in comparative terms only 5.5 per cent of a typical fuel load. JOHN SOLTAU OS Engineering, Solihull
