  1. NOOOO!!!
  2. Yep, good idea, will do this. Thanks to you lot I know which to get
  3. It’s shaken me up a bit...a sky tv chap was fixing the neighbour’s dish 2 weeks ago and said he’d had to pull a t2 over because it was on fire....
  4. I did yes, was down lying on the floor with him (after he’d towed it so I could look under the leak side!) :p I watched him tighten pump screws and he showed me where the line went from and to.

  5. Might be worth investing in an automatic fire extinguisher fitted into the engine bay.

    Nice one. Did he tell you that you were lucky, or had the petrol all ran out by then so he didn’t see the cascade! :)
  7. Replace all lines before you do that 100 miles, assume all fuel lines are perished, which they will be. Common sense.

  8. Don’t think he realised until I showed him about 15l of petrol I’d caught! On the plus side, going off what the gauge read before the down pour there’s more in the tank than it says!!

  9. Not much use though when the fuel leak is outside the engine compartment, hand held would be better.

  10. Agreed, you need both.
