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.
