8o today when i left for canterbury, my petrol tank was above quarter full. then i get there and its on the red, even after leaving it time to settle down. then i get home and its literally almost empty

it must be something like 40 miles max 8o

sounds like you got the same problem i had,

 

my car would strugle to do 200 miles on a tank............the culprit........a buggered airflow meter, MAF what ever you want to call it, think they are 50 ish quid, but ford said to me get it try it and if it don't sort the prob take it back, no charge!!!

i put my car in the diagnostric thing at for cost 45 quid and came back clean,

 

if you don't fancy that route, could poss be your HT leads, could give similar probs............

 

 

it's a 50 / 50 guess

 

 

ya feeling luckY!!!!!!!!

 

 

:D

 

 

good luck
