Chaps,

I picked the Coupe up this afternoon, and all is now well.

Local garage drained the tank, blew out the fuel line, emptied the float chamber, fitted a new fuel filter and refilled with petrol, and the car runs absolutely fine, so it seems no damage was done.

I brimmed the tank and took it for a blast to clear out any diesel residue from the exhaust and it runs perfectly, in fact it seems to be running better than ever !
Or maybe that`s just a trick of my imagination.

I might look into welding a narrower fuel neck into the tank`s filler to prevent a repeat, providing it`s not too big a job, otherwise I will just have to make sure I engage brain when refuelling in the future !

Anyway, the important thing is it`s not done any harm, so thanks for all your support and advice.

Welding and fuel filler sound a bit frightening in the same sentence. Could you press fit a restrictor into the neck of the existing filler?

Yes I know what you mean, that is probably a better solution, thanks.
