Re: [IP] Warning for Disetronic HTron users

I have to ask...When you get the TI warning, one normally has eight weeks to
send it in and hook up to their second pump.

Did this not happen with yours, and if so, why didn't you go ahead and hook
up to the other pump and send that in?

I'm asking because this has never happened to me before. I was using the
H-TRON V100 and am now on the H-TRON Plus.
