What's the MPG like? Can I use chip fat and veggie oil? What about LPG?

You won't get away with that amount in, and I'm pretty sure there's no anti-syphon thingy, but give it a go.

Where are you?

Glad you pal's on the way, bit far from me.

Bloomin' easily done, and none of us wants the 'fuel van of shame'. :oops:

Soooo.... petrol tastes vile :lol: couldn’t get the fuel running with that method so ended up going to Halfords for a siphon hand pump. Pulled 20 litres out then filled it to the brim with diesel. Home now and the old boy seems to be running ok, fingers crossed we’re in the clear. Thanks again for the help Bob.

This might help you in the future, it fits on the inside of the fuel flap and when you open the flap it lets you know you have a diesel vehicle.
