Hi people. I hope I have posted this in the correct thread section, if not then I apologise!!
I have got a 2006 Vectra SRi 2.2direct petrol.
On my last few journeys in the car the emissions light (the engine light in bottom right hand corner, NOT the car with spanner light) has been on with engine running. I have been speaking to some guys from work and they reckon it is because I have used different fuels. I normally use Shell FuelSave but 2 weeks ago I put some Tesco fuel in as that was cheaper. This emission light has been on since the day after I put the Tesco petrol in. People have told me I have put ''dirty'' fuel in.
I presume they mean crap from the bottom of the tank has got into my car?? Either way I have not managed to get this light to go out and it stays on with engine running. Today when starting the car, the car/spanner light flashed 3 times then the engine cut out. I started it again a few minutes after and the car/spanner light did not show again.
Any ideas what is causing the emissions light to stay on??? I must also mention that there is a horrible smell from exhaust, almost like a stink bomb!!
Any info much appreciated as normal!!
