Mine stopped on me today - no warning, slowing down from 30mph to a busy
blind junction when it cut out right on the white line. Would it restart?
Would it bollocks. After what seemed to have been half-an-hour of trying
(but was probably more like 5 minutes) it did fire but didn't appear to be
running normally. Fuel was down to the low level warning and since I
refilled tonight it has been running smoother. Fuel pump is louder than
usual but not really loud.
