Tried to drive the car today and it doesn't maintain fuel pressure as soon as I put my foot down.
Dammit... it never ends.
So need to pull the pump out and have a look. I have a feeling the POR15 might be breaking down and blocking the pump sock - the old one was a bit black in colour.
I'll also replace the main filter just to be safe.
I actually had this problem on the dyno day when I was driving home into my street, but I thought it was a vacuum lock in the tank causing it because the cap wasn't breathing.
Obviously not that.
Yep its like cutting roofing iron if you cut it with snips it rolls the coating over the cut edge to some degree, and there is no burning.
Yeah that was my problem. The plasma burnt the coating on the bottom of the tank and I could imagine it rusting.
Shouldn't have worried about it in hindsight.. new tanks aren't that expensive.
If a later one came up at the right price I might change over anyway, but problem is I cut out one side of mine to make more room for my exhaust, so it's not a trivial job even without taking into account the hole for the pump.
