Zero report it to them in any event. I had a bad experience many years ago +- 1989 coming back from Cristiana car started jerking from Wolmaranstad. Limped home all the way took it to Germiston Motors & they found water in the tank. I phoned the garage in Chrisjantrane where I filled up & they came back to me later to confirm that they found a damaged underground pipe. I was satisfied that they even did something about it & more surprised when the owner offered compensation, he refunded me the bill from Germiston Motors to drop & clean the tank.

Caltex Birchleigh had the whole place revamped after some complaints about dirty fuel. They now have new tanks the lot, was closed for a couple of weeks.

Outback guard is similar to the 3in1 cleaner.... Its just stronger. I only use that after a while.... But since youve already used the 3in1 cleaner then maybe there wont be a need to use the outback gaurd.
Yeah still running the same tank, and it looks like even my mileage has also increased now, its now still just toucing the full mark on the cluster and i have done 120km now.
She started spitting this morning as if there was NF in, sounds awesome haha! So looks like this stuff is working great!

Wow! You could be glad they did something about it MrMazda, maar daai was nog die ou SA en dishoekom iets gedoen was daar omtrent :D
Now I will def be making a turn there to speak to management, but I personally doubt that they will do something about it, will give it a shot! 8)

Hi guys.

Sorry to bother.
I bought a 2007 focus ST about 4 months ago.
About a week ago it started with the same symptoms as described Z3RO.

Last night I started looking for the fuel filter but couldn't find it.
Can someone please point me in the right direction on where it's located as I only have about an hour between 10 and 11 at night to work on the car.
