    Default Even Sicker but resolved

    Sorry to do this to you guys, but a footnote to my fuel dramas is 'in the offing'. I must admit I have called on professional help to bring it to a conclusion.
    The previous explanation was literally "too easy" (it is a modern French car after all) : Most of my previous information was accurate, except in the fine detail; there is a tiny split in the right-angle fitting on top of the fuel pump sender on the pressure (delivery) side, which was wasting fuel at roughly a cup every couple of minutes, so a hopelessly extravagant fault. This is actually a vertical split about 1cm high in the white plastic junction, so the clip on the pipe itself was not at fault.
    I have (had) a spare tank with sender, which we used to replace the dodgy one, so saved meself a couple/300 dollars, I believe is the 'ask'. Will make every attempt to repair the leaky one, now I know where to look. (how do yez like the new paragraph-rich layout ?)

    Only (the late) Derek and (the late) Clive REALLY know about 'getting the horn'

    I can't see anything wrong with that?
