Found them - feed and return. PM me

For fuel pressure, it should start low around 1.2-1.5 bar and increase when warm to 3.3-3.8 bar. I'm not 100% sure on the numbers for your engine.

The other way is to run the engine for a while, switch off and pump the pedal 40 odd times to empty the bomb.

Level should be at the max or just below.

If it's above, it's overfilled.

The rear diff lock automatically disengages at 25km/h (15mph).

That function can be bypassed by cutting the blue / white wire. Just check that your blue / white wire is intact.

I've been putting 98 E5 into the 2.6.
