  6. What should Fuel pressure be?

    I'm having some issues with my 1.9tdi 2010 Leon. It has started cutting out when the throttle is shut and the car slowing down.

  9. Race fuel door cover

    Hi everyone! I'm in search for a aluminium fuel door cover. Because it's for a bodykit, the size is not much variable. And is has to be a 'door' too, not a screw off kinda fuel cap.. Here's an example of the kind of door i'm looking for, and it has to be 12cm or 4,75" outer diameter...

  12. Millers Additive and onto Race Fuel

    Hi, When I had my Cupra TDi I'd put in Millers EcoMax additives with cheap diesel to get a lot better running car. It's popular with the diesel crowd. I've noticed it the Petrol equivelant doesn't seem half as popular, does anyone use it? Any difference? Then I got onto reading about...

    The dreaded fuel filter

    I tried to replace my fuel filter today (under the driver's side rear arch) but gave up! The damn thing just wouldn't budge and my fingers became so sore I just left it. From what I've read, this shouldn't be a big job! I'm also thinking that the current filter is the original. Its made from...
