My Ride: HQ MONARO - VX SS
Name: Charlie
I'm having fuel pressure problems with the Monaro at the moment as the fuel gauge keeps fluctuating high and low. Some times when it's fired up it sits at the set point that Iv set it at then slowly starts to creep up and then down vice verser. It's not the gauge as Iv replaced it with a
Borrowed one from ISO to see if it was still doing it and it is! next thing would be the fuel pressure reg as its not that old and could be faulty so need to ask anyone if they have a spare one I could borrow just to hook up to see if it's the fuel pressure reg.

I'm running a 2 port dead head set up as well. Ideally would like to have it running a bi pass line back to the tank but don't want to start changing things around.

Any help would be good. Cheers guys,

Charlie.
