I have just had quite a fright. I refilled my 84S2 today, and while the cost is fright enough, on reaching home noticed a smell of petrol that seemed out of keeping. Looked under and the fuel was dripping out of the pump cover. Quickly removed the cover to discover that the nearly new OEM pipe 928 356 550 05 which goes from the tank to the pump had delaminated. Frantic solution, pull off hose and push PVC hose plugged on in its place. Slightly more relaxed investigation shows that the entire inner has degraded as well. I'll be interested in my OPCs view of this, but meanwhile check if you have a new hose. Oh yes, it was Shell V Max, not that I expect it to be any more aggressive.
If that lot had caught fire I shudder to think what would have happened....more to the point I hope it doesn't happen to any one else either.
