It may be the case that a breather pipe is blocked, as this would allow air in the tank to be expelled as the fuel enters.

That is where I'd be looking first.



Many thanks for your help Paul, very much appreciated. I'm not the worlds best when it comes to cars, how does one find a breather pipe?
