    Resistor has failed. Either buy a new one from Vauxhall or replace the thermal fuse (parts available at Maplin for pennies if you DIY the thermal fuse)

    Pretty sure the fix is mentioned in the how2 section.

    id say you have a leak somewhere because £40 for 150 miles works out at 22 mpg

    check the fuel filter, think its under the drivers side door, if its not thier its on the fuel tank viewable from under the front of the rear wheel. ... pretty sure its drivers side door on the facelift though.

    Years ago I had this issue with both MK2 an Mk3 Caviliers, it was where the metal fuel line under the body changed to rubber hoses right up to the inlet manifold at the firewall, the rubber would go porus, new rubber hoses, job done.

    heater only working on 4 is the resistor is knackered, cheap replacement.
