i will come over to cowes and you can syphon it straight into my boat then you can fill with nice fresh petrol

unleaded goes off a bit over time but would not worry about it, just fill it up to the gunnals and give it a nice blast and have fun

thats what i would do....

Couple of silly questions:
1) I left some fuel in the tank (actually more than I thought) but it has sat since late September. Should I dispose of this?
2) Should I and how do I clean the tank (underfloor jobbie)?
Engine was services and winterised, new fuel filter added.
Would be grateful for some advice...

Many thanks.

We're back!!

GT Marine have pulled out all the stops, and got the boat on the water for the bank holiday weekend.

Apparently the Opti has a 7th piston used to compress air for the fuel injection. This had shattered. Luckily GT had a replacement part, and could replace it. So I reckon I'm on for a bill for 800 rather than 12000. Never thought I'd be so pleased about an 800 quid bill.

Thanks to all for your help, support and advice!
