    also worth checking / replacing the fuel filter, cheap and easy, and worthwhile anyway , as they are frequently left unchanged way beyond their intended life.

    Didn't use it over the weekend as was away.

    Jumped in this morning and reached Hatfield, about 8 miles away, without any incident. Filled with fuel and bastid nearly cut out on me twice coming out of the petrol station. Ran iffy for next few miles. In traffic the rev counter at idle was dancing between 800-1200rpm like I was gently blipping the throttle only I wasn't. Normal idle is 800rpm. Couple of miles later and it drove pretty much normal including idle. Gonna try and book it in for Fri.

    My money is still on a failing mass airflow sensor. It isn't working outwith its normal range so no engine management light but not monitoring the airflow properly hence poor running. It is all the normal symptoms for a failing sensor.

    I was now thinking a sensor as it seemed like the engine couldn't work out what fuel/revs it needed rather than fuel not getting through. It's not hunted like that before, but it really didn't seem like the car knew what revs to settle at.
