I am driving a 2001 Astra Coupe Turbo. Ran out of fuel today with 25 miles left on the range (fuel light was flashing)....about 1 mile away from the petrol station
So...after a lovely walk to the petrol station £5 for a jerry can and £5.80 worth of fuel I managed to get some "go-go juice" into the tank.
It won't start unless I hold my foot on the accelerator and when it does start it just misfires. I tried holding the revs but it just cuts out. The engine management warning light also comes on.
I have tried turning the ignition to "On" and leaving it for around 10 seconds but the same problem.
Is there something else I need to do? Do you think it is fuel related or just a conincidence it was low? I have checked the owners manual and tried to search but can't find anything.
