Fuel Probs, etc

Hi Cammer - Looks like the workshop manager will be going hungry for a few days after getting both arms into you (ha ha). I'm not surprised the light has come on again - the job was done the wrong way round - the fuel should have been changed first - instead of changing the sensor and letting the "contaminated "fuel reach the newly installed part. Thank goodness these guys or gals don't work in the blood tranfusion service. Even 150 plus seems a bit much to drain fuel and replace it - how much "new" fuel did they put in the tank. Modern fuel tanks don't have drain plugs - so they probably just syphoned it off and topped it up fresh juice. Nor so long ago a mate of mine put petrol in his diesel car by mistake - luvkily he caught on real quick - we bought a syphon tube and pump for 2-00 - syphoned a much as we could out and then filled to the top with the right stuff - took us about an hour at most.
