    Yes. It seems there is a penalty for being a un-"hip" luddite after all. Forum to my rescue , yours may prove more difficult for them though. I wait to see the outcome. Best of luck

    Big news.......the 1/8npt tyre valves arrived from China today!

    I will fit everything this afternoon with a few pictures to follow. Doubt I’ll get to use in anger for a few weeks though to see how they work

    Fitting was easy.



    I think the valves are in constant connection with the display. Over the last few weeks, the temperature aspect has changed each time Iíve gone down to the boat. If so, thatís great!

    Started up on the dock and brought in the superchargers, both changed but it is a little delayed. Main thing is....it did change the pressure reading! I will have a go in anger as soon as weather, work and tides allow.

    The display is nice and unobtrusive too.

    Outstanding! What a simple and cost effective solution. Think I will be following your lead.

    Do you have a link for that exact TPMS?

    Great work.

    There are a lot on eBay selling the same one though

    Remember, I’ve yet to use it in anger so no promises!

    Post robust testing of course! I am optimistic. I read that they can be checked while a vehicle is stationary so cant see why they wouldn't work.

    Is anyone familiar with the volvo penta d series, or more specifically the d4, is there an existing tapping to screw one of these sensors into?

    If so, roughly where is it and what thread is it?

    I quite fancy giving this a go myself, but not if I have to drill the inlet manifold.
