Re: Fuel economy (again, sorry)

Never, ever, ever having ran out of fuel.
I'm presuming that if I were to drive 'till the engine coughed then put fuel in from the can...

How easy would it be to start the engine?
Is there a technique?

Re: Fuel economy (again, sorry)

did that once..

before the engine cut itself off, with all the dash lighting up..
losing power steering,
the engine will start to lose power slightly for a few time first.


pour diesel into the tank.

switch the ign into mar,
let the fuel pump in the tank does it's work.
the fuel pump should run for a few second,
repeat a few time
before starting the engine.

i once read that because of the additional pump in the tank,
doblo need not worry abt airlock,

Thanks RichDoblo120 thanked for this post
