Hey chaps,
When I first got the Corsa I used to put tenners n fivers at a time in the tank. A fiver used to get me about 60 miles iirc but recently I have noticed that it will only get me around 45-50 miles? The fuel guage drops at a quicker rate than it used to, and sometimes it will go down slightly then go back up to where it was :dontknow:

Any ideas appreciated
Cheers
Dan

Yeah true never thought of that, would a few pence per litre make so much difference then?

i hope you never did maths at school

95.9p = 10.4 Litres
85.9p = 11.6 Litres

it WOULD work in the older derv's.. used stuff would be better :lol:

but if i did that in mine it would clog up the injectors and *bang* goes the engine.. :look: its too thick as the modern derv's run the same way as petrols of injecting the fuel rather then using the compression generated by the cylinder.. ;)
