    The fuel pressure regulator is required to reduce the fuel pump pressure at the fuel injectors ... the recall will be free of charge as its driven By Vauxhall


    and 30 minutes for a response is good.....


    remember not everyone is online when you are ... give them a chance

    For the range calculation to be right you'll need to fill the tank to the brim, then select the range in the menu as the current item to display, and do a 'reset present' and a 'reset all'. Then you can switch the current item to something else if you like. It needs resetting from time to time to get an accurate gauge of how much fuel is in the tank. Maybe once every couple of months.

    no it wont

    after you have topped up it will give a figure of expected mileage I guessing you where doing town driving prior to topping up, if you go on a motorway or do some careful driving this figure will go up
