Yeah I know! The taxes are a horrible c*** 63NOK/6£ for a 0.5L is almost cheap! Some places you have to pay 75NOK/7£ and even more Maybe I misunderstood your thread Triple Niple, because I thought you ment that you got something cheaper in Us than in GB with the freight cost + +!? What I ment was that maybe GB has horrible prices&taxes, but try I Norway and you have so you know how worse it is Im buying a new engine tomorrow from Sweden, it saves me almost 3000quid from buying it in Norway!!

BTW could you explain me what so special about the gold piston rings? Is it for compression or is it for the friction against the cylinder walls or is it neither?

PS; Norway is in deed a beautiful country, but GB aint much worse!! Next time you're in the country I will buy you an expensive beer that is not even a pint and we can talk about who is worse off;p

Cheers
