Nice recovery on the 2.0 auto after a 21 year layup, though be careful now you have the 24v. One Xm is possible, but two seems to be an impossible number, they breed.OKU2 wrote: ↑Fri Jul 30, 2021 9:59 amI went in my everyday 2.0ltr black S1 Auto, which was put back on the road 3 years ago after being in storage for 21years! Plus, I was hoping to take my Emerald Green 24v that had just gone through its first MOT in 16years. (Adie Pease of DS fame was my second driver)
However, the 24v unfortunately broke down 3 miles into the journey! The failure turned out to be that I had run out of fuel (slightly embarrassing)... Diagnostics wasn't helped though by a faulty fuel gauge reading a 1/4 of a tank, (that had be repaired a couple of days previously) and an MOT station that told me that they had put 20ltrs of fuel in it..... It was more like 10ltrs.
For the 24v fuel gauge issue check the base of the tank hasn't been pressed upwards when it was sitting about, then empty it before resetting the float arm.
Perhaps the garage thought 20 litres was 1/3 of a tank or more, its 1/4.
20 litres will equate to about 100 miles, or two hours of idling and running, less on a newly running engine.
The economy does improve somewhat as the engine beds in and seats the rings, but don't be tempted to leave home without a bank card on you...
