Hi All, Hope to get some advice about fixing the fuel feed from one side of my quattro’s saddle tank to the other. The car used to do about 360 on a good run then I broke down with no fuel after 300 but the gauge showing just under a 1/4 and 100 miles to go on the trip computer. This has now happened again at 275 miles. The AA put a 10 litre Jerry can in the tank and it went from running out of petrol to 1/2 full on the gauge. Im fairly confident the issue is accessing the far side saddle tank so it’s got fuel but it’s not being brought over to the main fuel pump. Has anyone taken out and replaced the feed pipes between the passenger side syphon pump and the main electric pump? If you take both out can you just replace the hoses between the two? The car is 19 yrs old and has been fantastic, I want to keep it going but the family are loosing faith and I don’t want to have to refuel every 200 miles, particularly as motorway fuel prices are a total rip off. Any suggestions/advice would be great!
