Re: Clio rough start from cold

Air gets into the tank anyway - otherwise the fuel would stop flowing. Think about it - as the fuel goes out something has to take its place. Now if the seals at the fuel pipes going to the tank unit are leaking then that's a totally different matter.

I would recommend to anyone considering removing the tank unit not to do so unless it's absolutely necessary and even then only if they have a suitable tool for the job. It is quite common for the tank to deform out of shape thus preventing refitting.
