comment Can I decrease the sensitivity of my seat belt “person detector”?
@WilliamCline and SeanReifschneider: In the event of an airbag-triggering crash, I think one more airbag is the least of your worries. Either the crash is not your fault and the other guy's insurance will cover it, or it is your fault and that airbag is going to be your concern #289...

Put it on the floor in front of the seat?

comment Charger doesn't stay put in cigarette lighter outlet
Yes I agree that the problem is probably the poor quality of the charger. The problem is that I've never found anything that doesn't look like it came from the same Chinese factory in the end. Good idea with prying the wings out a bit!

comment How can I elegantly secure a USB charging cable to the dashboard?
This is an interesting idea with less visibility. I'll grab a flashlight and study how it could be done without dismantling (too much). Thank you!

comment When car is standing still, I smell Diesel exhaust. Why?
I am not a mechanic, not even a homebrew one... thanks anyway :-) Is there a cheap way (kind of test strips, or canary birds, or something) to test for CO presence in the cabin, rather than actually checking the piping?

comment Diesel vs Petrol motorcars. Pro's and cons?
In Europe, diesel has been at least 10-20% cheaper since forever but in the past 2-3 years the prices are nearly identical. I've only once seen diesel to be more expensive than petrol in Austria; never more expensive in Denmark - just to provide two points of data.

That makes a lot of sense, @ManiacZX. The service shop that did the A/C work said they'd checked the exhaust for leaks and found none, but you make me want to invest money in a second opinion... I certainly don't want to overlook carbon monoxide!

Thanks! I tried "ventilation" but it was rejected, so I entered "air-conditioning" which was then converted to "ac". Please consider setting up a tag alias for "ventilation"->"hvac".
