It needs an aircraft style poppet valve under the tank where a nozzle on a bottle is pushed in the valve. Water drains test. Done in a daily inspection. Maybe all cars will have it eventually.
Wishful thinking. Stupid boy pike.

Bung a set of Bourgicord leads on as the Bosch ones are useless !

Dave (Laird Scooby) will be along shortly I'm sure to tell you what ratio of meths etc to use in the tank to clear it out if you don't fancy losing your fuel for it to potentially not be the fault.

No, I wasn't agreeing that water in the fuel tank might be the problem, but I cant imagine it would do any good.

Sorry for the misunderstanding I may have caused,Im gobsmacked that there may be water in the fuel,hence the "water in the fuel lines?" surprise

For some reason, the forum won't let me post my longer reply, go to Toolstation and buy 2L of meths and add it to ~1/4 tank (no more than 1/4) of fuel, drive until it's nearly empty then fill up with Super unleaded/E5 and don't use E10 again as it has a higher water content.

Hopefully this post works!

As a result of this thread, i just went to Toolstation and got 2L of meths and added it to my tank. I have also been experiencing an intermittent misfire and down on power even when hot and to be honest, i should have thought of it sooner.

I had half a gallon in a can in the back anyway from my last trip to fill up (i'd left things a bit late! ) so i added the meths to that and then added all of it to the tank.

Fired up after turning a bit more than usual but it was a hot day and as i was thinking i may have to try again, it caught and idled smoother than it has for a long time.

Drove out of the car park and put my foot down to pull away and surprised myself - it went better than it has for a long time too!

Overall a vast improvement! Of course, the acid test will be when it's sat overnight and how it performs from cold tomorrow but so far so good!
