It’s not something I have sitting around, so wondering whether running it dry might cause the fuel pump to cavitate or run hot (as I...

    S-Reg A160 Fuel Filter Removal Issue

    I have just been looking at the fuel filter on my A160 as it needs replacing and can see how to remove the various hoses without much issue.
