Why two filler caps on the coolant reservoir??

It is as the parts manual.. pressure cap + blanking cap... think my was the same.

That's a bit strange. Not exactly adding lightness. Am I missing something or doesn't the blanking cap have any purpose? My early Excel only has a pressure cap on the expansion tank.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

So the tank has an internal division so it's not a single volume? That does make sense, thanks! 🙂

I know the theory for having both a header and expansion tank, like on the Esprit. I didn't know they came as a single physical tank instead of 2, that is good design. 🙂
