I ran out of gas today (or at least I think I did). Tow truck delivered 10 litres. 3 minutes away I fuelled up and it only took 10 more litres. 60 litre capacity. Any suggestions?
It seems that if my tank was empty when I ran out of gas and the tow truck driver put in 10 litres then I put in 10 because that’s all it would take and the tank holds 60 litres it doesn’t add up. Maybe I wasn’t out of gas but when it shut down at the side of the road if felt like it.Welcome to the FFO!
Suggestions for what?
Funny thing is once the Jerry can emptied into the tank the car started and ran fine. Thanks for your input. I will continue to check all components as you suggested.If that was the case the more correct term was you did not run out of fuel.
However the fuel may have stopped getting to the carb. In that case ....
Bad fuel pump?
Issues with carb like float, needle & seat or some other thing
Time for some diagnosis.
Have you confirmed there is no fuel at the carb?
