Well its still early days but I'm pleased to say, for me anyway, I have fixed the fuel leak deal. I have driven for an hour on a hot day with a 1/4 tank, filled up, driven for another hour and no leaking. Now I'm down to 1/2 tank again all on hot days, parked in the sun and all is normal. Before swapping the valve around I would have seen new wet diesel stain all over the fill pipe, breather, chassis, tank neck and and body going down under to the bash plate; instead I have none or it. When I release the fill cap immediately after driving I get a very small breath in. Way less than the old whoosh out. If I let it sit for some time after stopping I get nothing. Car runs fine. Cars is running so well I have started wondering if the 20lt of light grey smoke I have been getting on start up after sitting overnight, could possibly be related to an over pressurised fuel tank. Because I'm not getting it anymore. But then I guess it could also be just a Land Rover thing.

LR have the big end facing the breather pipe. I reckon it should look like this.

Had my breather hose replaced now due to a leaking valve. They did it under warranty and without lowering the tank.

Mine Is in the dealers today having this looked at. I got a call this afternoon saying it had all been approved under warranty and it was leaking because the valve was on the wrong way round from new!!

I wasn’t surprised!!

They recon ill have it back tomorrow but I won’t hold my breath as they had the truck for three months last time it went in.

Mine is starting to perish so this thread has been very ingesting.

Glad to see for once it's not something really expensive to repair.
