    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.
