Well it was alive…

I realise I haven’t posted anything for a while… and seeing as eljot87 has even commented on that means I really should update this!

After the initial joy of firing up the Trabi, it quickly turned sour after slowing to a stop about 2km down the road! Even after only 2km, the bottom of the carb was full of rubbish from the bottom of the fuel tank!

These are becoming a common sight these days!

There was a post on the IFA club forum the other day to say that a rust free tank is on its way from Bulgaria soon… as soon as that turns up I’ll clean the carb out again and fire the car up again.

    Add an inline filter and regularly empty the dirty trap in the fuel cock (even with the new tank). Some folks recommend removing the mausekino too.

    Thanks for the comments. I have an inline filter which will go on the new tank, but I was worried the filter would inhibit fuel flow, good to know that others recommend fitting one. My car is already missing the mausekino, so thats one job already done for me ;)
