Re: Fill fuel tank?

stick 3 gallons(or a full tank if your flush for cash) of Shell V+Power(Petrol or Diesel) in the tank once every 3 months/1k miles, that should do more to sort out your engine and turbo /exhaust/ FAP system problems.

just driving around will slosh the fuel you have in the tank, around enough to prevent residue building up on the walls. except for in the bottom of the tank, where the built in pump filter will keep out the larger particles and the inline fuel filter will filter out the majority of the rest from getting to the engine.

I dont think we have enough steep hills or mountains here in the UK to worry about the extra weight of a full tank on the mpg stats.
