Strange. Wouldnt think that would affect the sender but good job non the less

I'm guessing the fuel tank isn't a big rectangle so if its not in the right position is touching something giving it a false reading, but not sure. Works now though :)

ok, so as the car seems to be running ok for now (the issue with first start has come back, just need to press accelerator and starts ok) what cheapish upgrades should I be looking to do. Obviously I want to replace the wings when some in the right colour pop up at the right price, and replace some of the interior plastics as some parts are looking a bit aged. Ordered the bits to swap out the stock stereo so thats a job for next weekend, anything else I should be thinking of (I know it would probs be wiser to save for cambelt change but thinking if there are a few cheap mods/upgrades to do in the meantime will crack on with them).

Replace vac hoses with silicone.
Egr delete pipes are fairly cheap

will I not need to get the EGR mapped out if I delete it? what gains are to be had fitting a delete kit?

Stops the egr gunking the Inlet up with crap. Will need mapping out but can keep the light out with vcd when it comes to mot.

ok but no performance gains? will the light not just come back on during MOT?

Takes around 30 miles. Well theres a little bit as the inlet will be fully clean and without exhaust gas mixed with oil.
Youll maybe be suprised at how clogged it is
