Re: Tspark engine
Not sure. I think that possibly, under a sustained flow of petrol (ie, when cruising for long periods), dirt could clog the in-tank filter, reducing flow. Then when you let off, it'd sink to the bottom of the tank again, till next time?
I'm about as mechanically minded as a brick, so this is only a possible theory.
I did, a long time ago, have a van which ran perfectly anywhere except on the motorway, where, after about half an hour, in would just die. You'd have to sit for ten minutes then it'd restart, and run for about half an hour again.... although, come to think of it, never did get to the bottom of that problem, so not much of a help.
Our final supposition was dirt in the tank though.
