Is there an in-line fuel filter on a ZT-T 190 ? I seem to get a problem as if I've stirred up some dirt at the bottom of the fuel tank as every time I fill up, after say 10 - 20 miles , the old girl gives a couple of coughs and is then ok !! Any ideas ? Oh just to say I always wait to fill up until the low fuel warning light comes on ( 45 mile range in my car )

Maybe the fuel pump 'O' ring that unscrews itself ?? Easy to fix yourself - there is a datasheet somewhere (http://forums.xpowerforums.com/showthread.php?t=30340). I didn't have any symptoms before mine failed and it cost me £120 to have fixed !

When you run you tank low the pump will start sucking up all the crap laying in the bottom of the tank and then it starts blocking the filter,then right through the fuel line to the engine.I read somewhere they recommend you not let the fuel tank get below 1//4 empty before fuelling it up.

The fuel filter is in the left hand side of the fuel tank. It is also this fuel filter module that falls apart sometimes (not the fuel pump) so it is worth extracting when you have time, changing the filter, checking the O Ring, and buying and fitting the security clip that is now available from X Part dealers.
It should take you around an hour including coffee breaks and fixing yourself with Elastoplast.
If you have a look at the site data sheets all the info is there.

Thanks, I tried the option suggested by genpk today and so far so good but I think I will need to check the filter in the longer term
