Hi all I'm new to forum would like to know what to check before setting off on a long journey? I'm talking 1500 miles or more, I know all the obvious stuff Ie tyres water oil etc, anything else?
Basic running stuff i would say ie are the brakes ok, all light bulbs working, washer fluid, battery charged, fuel and air filter ok?
And then you could look at some winter specific things eg spade and some grit in the boot, warm coat/clothes, headtorch.

Is it a packing list or a checklist?
Your mobile phone, the recovery company phone number with policy details and your wallet.
After all the good advice,don't forget to fill your tank prior to leaving.:thumbsup::whistle:

I would get a minor service done. Oil and filter. Check all other fluids.
Maybe a battery test too.
