    Can anyone tell me where this is???

    My dizzy wife let the car run out of fuel...topped it backup but it won't fire.
    Think the cut off has kicked in

    Didn't know there was one. I thought you had to prime the system after fuel starvation.

    Ok there is no mention of a fuel cut of switch in the manual and the petrol unit appears to self prime. So could be a fault somewhere on the fue deliv system.
