This is what happens if the fuel pipe pops off the fuel rail. Oooops! Anyway, no harm done and all fixed now.

I had my ECU pop a few 'leccy bits inside when I was giving it a bit of stick and this caused the injectors to open fully and dump so much fuel into the engine that it cut out and rolled to a halt, actually had fuel on the floor and it absolutely stunk of petrol!

My car is now all fixed again. Colllected it last Thursday evening from Leicester and had a great 3 hour run back to Dorset. But it's quite annoying when people come up close behind with their lights blaring, trying to work out what the car is by reading the rear badge. The rear view mirror is old school, so doesn't dim.

Oh...and in the dark, the rear screen reflects the lit up road ahead, so when you look in the rear view mirror, you actually see the road in front of you! That's weird. The reflection of the dashboard dials up on to the front windscreen gives a strange upside down "head up" display as well.

So all in all, driving this car in the dark (something I've only done once in the two years I've owned it) is unlike anything else I've driven.
