Re: Misfire Petrol related?

Hi ,
had a similar problem when i first had my s3 ,
on investigating i found it was only running on a single pump.
Fitted a new electronic pump from SNG and all was cured.

And it is sold by SNG Barratt my prefered supplier.
The previous comment is 100 percent common sense!

I took my centre console and seats out as well to make it easier...
