Diesel fuel tank airlock?
Peculiar this, hasn't happened before, but I'm fairly new to diesels.
I had about 10L in the tank and went to fill up with the posh Esso DERV. I could only get 15L into the tank with the pump handle interlock operating repeatedly. Looking down the filler tube, the fuel was not draining into the tank - the tube was filled almost to the top.
The tank was only half-full but I couldn't get any more in.
Anyone know why? It was very hot. I'd only done a mile from home, and the car had been standing in the heat.
