  1. Just a thought, check inside the hole it left behind in case something is still there.
  2. Hi Guys Sounds like something floating about in the fuel tank and coming to rest now and then over exit for the fuel. One of our club members had a similar problem which turned out to be the small cardboard disc from a cap of fuel additive which fell in!!. Took a while and a lot of fishing about with a stick and pin thing to remove it. Paul

  4. Hi Stuart Me too for this. There is a lot on the forum about keeping the engine cooler and fuel evaporation problems, which cooling fan to use etc. This has to increase heat retention doesn't it? Paul
  5. Morning Paul.

    not able to do the spraying so got the lads at bad in Congleton to so it for me, it is a good match as it is a dark blue,

    Hi Mike Did you spray it yourself or have it done elsewhere. How did you go with the paint match. Paul (redrose)
  7. iani X2 You will save so much time/hassle in the future should you have a problem with pipes or tank or just want to clean up the boot area. My pump is also in the wheel arch and this gives you a little more space to use in the boot also. Paul
  8. Are you sure there is no one locked in the boot!
  9. MrG is too close to MG for my liking. Welcome to the forum Bob Paul

    Petrol Smell!

    I had a scimilar problem a couple of years ago with my alloy tank. Strong smell when tank full which gradually reduced as more fuel used. After usual connections checked etc, removed tank to discover that one of the baffles inside the tank had come adrift at the top weld causing a small whole to appear. Hence the cause of strong smell reducing as fuel used. Remove tank and check all around for cracks etc as this was only visable when removed. Paul
  15. Thanks Stuart I didn't know I got car sick till I saw that. Paul
