    Thanks for that

    Oh, one more question, is the only fuel filter on the tlr the one in the tank?

    Yep, same on TLR and TLS.. Recommend you to do the inline fuelfilter mod when you have the tank open.. And make sure you follow the instructions to the letter when you put back the fuelpump.. Using the correct torque and order when you tighten the bolts are critical.. Clean the surface where the gasket sits thorougly.. And swap the OEM pinch-type hoseclamps to ones that you tighten with a screwdriver..

    Would a fuel pump on the fritz also account for excessive fuel usage too?

    like 50 miles to 12 litres of fuel?

    Sounds normal for my tiller.
    Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.

    There's an internal filter in each injector. RC Engineering replaces the internl filter too when they recondition your injectors.
    It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.

    It seems like 9 out of 10 people can't figure out how to time the cams properly, resulting in a lot of rebuilt TL engines with bad cam timing off half a tooth. So I'd sure check that out.
