    Removing fuel tank mk2 ph1

    Looking for advice as I've never removed a tank from a clio. On other cars I've siphoned fuel, clamped & cut the fuel line and dropped the tank. So far I can see three bolts holding the tank in place but the fuel line seems quite brittle. Any advice would be appreciated

    Fuel rail nut rounded off

    Hi all, I tried to take the fuel rail guard off a few weeks ago to change the oil filter but one of the nuts appears to be rounded off. I've tried a six sided socket but had no luck. What's the best way to get it off (the other nut is fine)?

    Performance fuels

    Hi guys, Sorry if this has been discussed before (I did a quick search which came up with nothing). What do you all think about performance fuels such as Shell V-Power? Do they really make a difference? What fuel do you all prefer and why?
