    Hi Mark, I've just done the same thing to one of my 280's, ie gave the full fuel system an overhaul, and when replacing the tank and accumulator I couldn't believe the crap that was sat in both, no wonder it was running lumpy.
    I also overhauled the fuel injection parts something that I use to send away to have done before, but found the kits on ebay were top quality and saved me quite a few hundred quid.
    Even though the car is low mileage, the heads had suffered with the new kinds of fuel, so I had them converted to unleaded by burtons and she now runs like a dream.
