PostSubject: Want To Attack My Car!!   Fri Jul 16, 2010 1:00 am

Put a tenner of petrol in my bus earlier and took a drive up the motorway. Got to the slip road for my exit and the engine just died on me. No engine management light at all, just the lights left on the dash after the engine had cut out. I had noticed on the motorway that if I eased off the throttle slightly the car would start jumping a bit but thought nothing of it at the time. I havent used the bus for a few days so thought it was maybe coked up or something. Took it to my local garage and they did a diagnostic check but it came up with nothing. Anyone else had this problem at all?

Thanks
