    That's possibly the longest single sentence I've ever read...

    I would've asked if the injectors could be at fault also, unburnt fuel sounds like something the injectors could be causing. You could try some redex in your next tank of fuel, or Shell V-power or similar and see if that might help clean any deposits on your injectors?
