I believe only turbo charged cars have MAF sensors (the one in my golf gttdi 150 was replaced a couple of times!!).

Seriously??? I'd be amazed if you got a ticket for being less than 10% over the limit. Remember - your cars speedo is over calibrated as it is required to be by law. If it says you're doing 43, you're probably doing more like 39/40. If you go by your satnav then you are a loser for driving round with a satnav on all the time ;)  dont flap! 


In Topic: General Question, How Do You Know When Your Tank Is Full???

I doubt it! :huh:  It is the vapour given off by petrol, then mixed with air that is flammable- not the liquid itself (this is the underlying principle of internal combustion). If you smell petrol you are smelling the vapour. If this is the case get the hell out of your car!! Vapour will not escape from your fuel tank unless it is damaged.

To explain better - fill away, when your tank is nearly full the nozzle with click in your hand and automatically stop fuel from flowing. You can either stop here or continue to pump until it clicks a second time. You are then full! If you are interested in saving a tiny bit more money, only half fill your tank each time- this means you are carrying less fuel, meaning less weight, meaning better economy. Although the savings are probably very, very small!!
