    Put some fuel in

    Put some in the fuel filter and go to start it, then it may splutter and run lumpy then be ok.

    The cdti is a electric fuel pump so will auto fill the fuel filter, unsure of the dti.

    And don't do it again you have been daft.!!

    My old 2.2 petrol 2003, LS did that. Was as if the fuel evoporated over night from the pump and pipes. Would start instantly once a jerry can had been added. Never happend on my 1.9cdti.... Odd.
