My fuel light has come on with the needle on the first bar, the trip computer says my range left is 34 miles which is roughly when the light normally does come on but the needle is sitting at the first bar so which one do I trust?

So last weekend my 1.5 DCI 80 started making a knocking/chuffing sound from the cambelt/aux area. Power wasnt affected. Aux belt was removed to confirm it wasn't the Alternator or anything in the Aux system.

The AN -6...

Does anyone know if the fuel pump from a 172 will fit into a Williams fuel pump cradle? Mine has just packed up and ive got two 172 pumps spare but before I go taking everything apart it would be nice if someone could confirm whether it will fit or not?
Hi guys, today I am going to service my 172 so I'm gonna change the spark plugs, oil, oil filter and fuel filter, iv had a look and I can see the oil filter but looks really awkward to get to, Is there any particular way to tackle this? And also where to I locate the fuel filter? Thanks
