    Anybody in Canberra that can help a fellow watercooler out?

    Picked up a bad tank of fuel the other day, ran it dry and filled up for a trip to the snow from Brisbane, 30mins into the trip it became clear I also have a blocked fuel filter as a result ..... Picked up a new filter in Coffs and made it too Canberra driving the Rok like a baby.

    Can probably get to Thredbo as is where I will have time to replace the filter during the week, but if anybody in Canberra can spare 30mins tomorrow morning, Sun 30Aug, to help me out with some tools and place to work (and some friendly banter) that would be much appreciated.

    PM me. Or txt me on 0four08seven66857

    Thanks for the offer, Paul, much appreciated.

    15mins outside Supercheap in Fyshwick sorted me out

    Only needed a 13 spanner and a flat head screwdriver.

    Car back to normal which is excellent, really happy the filter did what it was meant to do.

    Caltex in Carseldine, going north on Gympie Rd, they are doing renos and something must have contaminated the 98

    If you were still driving the MK1 you'd have those in the comprehensive box of tools that you always carry.
