Just a totally minor correction, SUs always came on pairs
on Spitfires, but not on all cars.
As well, some people convert their cars to single
SUs, so it isn't impossible to see them out there. They
either go from one ZS to one SU, or from two small SUs
to one large one.

Agreed, that changed a lot. Case in point, my local motor
factor lists one filter for Midget 1500 and one filter for
Spitfire 1500. In reality those are the same, just depending
on the adapter fitted. My car has the "wrong" adapter.
