    Default Tonight on BBC's Watchdog - Vauxhall fuel pressure regulator problem

    After suffering a failed fuel pressure regulator on our 05 2.2 direct Vectra in Sept of 2008 (in warranty) and another in December 2008 (out of warranty) I have been informed this morning by the dealer that there is a likelihood of the cause of this situation being contaminated fuel.

    Apparently fuel coming out of the Corringham Essex fuel refinery has minute traces of plastic in it which is blocking the regulator, this refinery supplies mostly supermarket chains.

    There is to be a feature on BBC's Watchdog this coming Monday, might be worth a peek.

    Any ideas if this has any info on the fuel pressure sensor issue?




    This is the mail I sent to the BBC regarding the FPS prob:-

    "I understand that there is to be a feature about a fault with Vauxhall Vectra 2.2 direct engines on tonights show? I have been affected by this situation in as much as having a fuel pressure sensor replaced under warranty in Sept 2008 and then shortly after the warranty running out another FPS being replaced on Dec 29th 2008, I was asked to pay for this as Vauxhall customer care refused to, after I too refused the dealer said that they would cover the costs (there was a slight prob as they had already fitted the part without my permission thus eliminating my chance to claim on my AA warranty)and the alerted me to tonights programme that I shall watch with interest".

    I know where me and my cup of coffee will be at 19.30Hrs tonight!
