I haven't used them before but i have mostly heard good things...the guys in Kent town right?
Yep they're the ones! Peter (the owner) is a nice bloke. Very helpful with any questions you might have and their communication is excellent. They come highly recommended (Peter is an Alfa Club SA life member) so for anything serious I take my baby there. Otherwise I'll take it to my local indie if its just a general fix or non-Alfa specific concern as Eurosport are pretty pricey @ $120p/h. But then again, they do good work and I know that once they fix it, its fixed. Unlike some others I have had the displeasure of dealing with with previous cars

And yea I suspected the fuel pump. Once exams are out the way I'll probably take a more serious look at the issue.

Hopefully yours gets resolved and isn't anything major!

Ok, i might try this test out too. I dont smell fuel in the car though. curiouser and curiouser
