    Hi
    We are newbies to the forum. Just bought a Talbot express pilote ( 26 years old ) but haven't managed a trip yet as something is draining the battery in hours and although she is both LPG and petrol she seems to prefer kangaroo juice in 1st 2nd and 3rd gear!!!
    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be causing either or both issues?
    Many thanks

    Hi. Invest in a multi meter, then pull every fuse you can find then start replacing them one at a time and see which is drawing the current ?
