    Auto stop not needed as it's fast enough. And the body is the right place for it IMO.
    Fair enough - just don't plug it in! The Ducato has a large, lidded flat plate linked to the positive pole on the battery (which is under the cab floor) and a damn great bolt to act as the earth point so a good clipped connection is easy.

    Gauge on the body? Well we will just have to agree to disagree. Wait until it's hooked in at the engine end and you have to drop a couple of PSI 'cos you overinflated the RHS back tyre tyre slightly - which is all too easy. Having the gauge next to the valve is quite handy!

    FWIW I went through the market and lots of recommendations when I bought my Ring one for £120-ish.

    Also FWIW I agree with you about fixed compressors!!

      Yes I am familiar with the Ducato jump points. They are needed every February after it's been left standing all winter

        Oh I think the butler packs the portable one.

        If I am away I use a garage one or the AA.

        Actually I was shocked at how useful having one in the Garage is, balls, bikes etc. Your opinions on peoples dicks are noted. Maybe we should call you pin prick?

          I use a trickle charger for that. Kinder on the battery.

            works like a charm.
