    "Swooshing" noise from fuel tank

    Afternoon all, I am new to VW, and only 1 week in, so may seem like a daft question to some..... When I am coming to stop or just manoeuvring slowly, I can hear a swooshing noise, which I think is coming from the fuel tank. Is this normal? If so, I can learn to live with it, just want to...

    Dislodged fuel vent pipe

    I've dislodged the fuel vent pipe (if that's the correct name for the thin black pipe running back from the fuel filler to under the van). Assume this just takes fumes to under the van as the tank fills. Is refitting it a priority - I won't be smoking while refuelling.....

    Fuel Tank, Be Aware

    New years eve, tried to start her. Plenty of effort just wouldn’t kick in. Ended up calling VW Assistance. They turned up within two hours, anyway, the issue it ended up being the slope on my drive, it isn’t what I would call steep at all. The tank showed a quarter of a tank. I have never had an...

    Fuel Tank Draining

    I have to drain all the fuel from an almost full tank. Anyone know where the relays are to power the pumps so I can disconnect the fuel line in the engine bay and get it to pump its own fuel out? Or, anyone know an easier way?
