    There are various products that you can put into the fuel tank (when it's at a low level so the additive doesn't become too diluted). Then give the car a good run and it may resolve the problem.

    emmisions

    :confused:

    Failed on what levels exactly

    I will assume that is failed on hydrocarbons being high, due to the nature of it's use, I wouldput some injector cleaner in the tank and take it for a good 20 mile run to get it hot and clean everything out, also present it for the retest hot not cold.

    The injector cleaner will say add contents to a full tank, I have allways added the contents to 1/4 of a tank and then used it all whilst getting the car hot, refill with new fuel and that should have sorted it......

    If it failed on other elements of the emmisiona then other things will need looking at

    Regards :dk:
