Brand of fuel

I just remember now about using the brand of fuel. You didn't say what brand of petrol you put in the first place and it might give a clue.

With my old diesel car, I filled up my car with cheapest diesel and my car was quite sluggish so I had to depress throttle more than I would normally do and got a fewer miles out of the tank, say around 50 miles or more, out of regular 600. So once it is almost empty, I filled it up with Texaco and it ran great afterward. I read that it is just the same with petrol.

You can have a read about using branded and supermarket fuels - http://www.simplemotoring.co.uk/supe...branded-fuels/

Also read some comments there, you will be surprised at how using a cheaper fuels can cause some troubles e.g. rough starting up, warning light or even going into 'Safe mode'!
