<strong>Iíve got a bit of a hard problem to explain; basically from cold my cloverleaf can feel hesitant through gradual acceleration. When it pulls it feels as though the handbrakes have been pulled on but this doesnít explain why itís intermittent.
What do you think? Fuel problem, Sticky handbrake?
I know it didn't happen when I filled up with Esso petrol butI've just filled up with Sainsbury's petrol ( I had no choice ). This could be the problem but I'd appreciate any advice</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">A lack of urge when accelerating gently below 3000rpm when cold? Yes, mine does that, and yes, it comes and goes with different suppliers of petrol.Once warm it's fine. I'd imagine the fuel in your area comes from Coryton (BP) or Purfleet (Esso) almost regardless of brand. All petrol at home (Essex, not far from you and the refineries) made my 146ti feel sluggish when cold (as you say, like the handbrakes on) whereas I've had no problems with the fuel in Wales (where I am now) which I think comes from Milford Haven.
The brands I used at home were Safeway, Jet, Murco and Total, wherehas here in Wales, it's Texaco
