You cant possibly have got 57 litres into a 45 litre tank.  ???

You can if itís over pressurised ;)

Although I agree that it sounds odd :-\

Who said curry....   ;D

Hello? :D ::)

Wel lIm 150 miles in now and its still showing Full Tank on the Gauge.  :o

What do you reckon if it did overfill, problem at my end or there Pump.

I was under the impression its regulated on presure at the Pump and therefore should cut off around the 80% full mark.  :-\

Sounds to me like you got what youíve paid for so possible an issue your end... Single or 4-hole tank?

Read through this (as per the request in PM ;))

Certainly sounds like a pickup problem but, as Kevin said, Iíd expect it to cope with idling when only drawing vapour.

Mind you, now the tank is out....

I'm with 3 and generally get a good service.  :y

Me too, including driving up from N Yorks to Glasgow and around Jockland.

I will confess that the helldesk can be interesting :-X Although itís quite apparent that TuBy has issues with everything  :-X ::) :D

So, the simple answer is that none of us can find or know a definitive answer... No problem. 

Thanks for the help guys :y

What if you presented it to MOT with a towing flange but no ball attached? :-\
you can only test what is presented (without removing covers or using tools)
but the flange must be secure and the supporting structure sound
any wiring must be secure and electrically safe

Except the handbook clearly states that any tow hatch cover should be removed to examine the hitch for wear

I thought, no matter on distance, either a board had to be fitted, or an occupant in towed vehicle had to do the signalling

Towing with rigid bar so towed vehicle will be manned  :y

7 pin trailer electrics are not testable for MOT because there is no set in stone standard of pin configuration
(though many MOT testers fail to read the manual and test anyway  ::) )
13 pin towing electrics are testable (and can be a fail if not working)
security of the towbar ,mounting area etc is also testable

a canbus relay can be had for £20,simple to wire, so £10 for cable and a 7 pin socket ,£30 total spend   :y
when towing, it is good to show other road users what your doing, like braking,turning, hazzards if you drive like a snail  ;D :D

Even with a canbus relay, wiring can be a pain - particularly in the case of our vans where the entire rear load area is sealed ::)

I would have thought it would be worth the extra expense of fitting the electrics to maintain the re-sale-ability and resale value?  ???

Who is going to buy a van with a tow bar that they can't use on the road?  ::)

By the time our vans have done upwards of 350k miles, plus the various holes from lights, vents, etc, the resale value is pretty much the square root of FA anyway :D

Any one able to give a legal view point please?

(Which was what I asked, as the various other arguments have been discussed before asking here)

Quick one please guys. Looking to fit Tow bars to our vans for the purpose of using a rigid bar for a safety tow (few hundred yards at most) so no need for trailer boards etc

Heard a rumour that itís now illegal to fit a tow bar without electrics  :-\. Anyone know if thereís any truth to it please?

There was an advisory notice not to apply external power to BMW over a few years but AFAIK that was revoked

Having driven my bosses several times I can confirm that it will go like a scalded cat! Itís also quite a pleasant place to be :y

(Although admittedly, his is chipped)

As for everything else - sorry to hear of your tumble Nige... Perhaps next time a little more tonic with your gin? :D

Stay well and enjoy the new steed

Wife's astra went into Vx for a service yesterday, £249.

Couldn't you have done it for her with 20% family discount ?  ;D
And get my hands dirty do some work? Behave yourself.

 :-X ::)
