:LOL: BIG leak - fuel injection pump outlet, full bore at 45 psi!
But just a small black BMW back then. Grumpy boss clearly didn't have same appreciation of price of a tankful - he just wanted to get his taxi back out. I was still hyper at the thought of me and family had that flame thrower caught a spark from the road though. Didn't make it back next year (or for a few unfortunately) to say thanks.

I was a mechanic here in the late 80's. Remember an 'emergency' fuel leak repair on a large car (vauxhall i think). Remember the £10 !!! Lot of money back then. Could it be the same job???? Grumpy boss?.......Oh yeah!

Wonder if the guy that fixed my car in the 80s is still there? Never got his name. He got the car safe enough in time to get on the wee ferry after we had to abandon the last big one after a major fuel system failure. A bargain fix at £10. Appreciation doesn't extend to his grumpy boss, who openly scowled and grudged unlocking the pump to fill the now empty tank.
