You can just bleed the diesel filter pretty easily.

Had the filter changed yesterday it was filthy but I'm still getting an occasional warning light , seems to do it after about half a mile after starting car then an odd time on motorway, anything else I can do or have missed....

Only thing I can think of is the fuel cap on and sealing? (ie letting air in but not water)

I owned mine from new (didn't have job at time) so was using supermarket fuel, the got a job and started to put Shell V-Power diesel, the mileage per tank went up over 100 miles per tank.
Now getting 700-800 miles per tank!

I'm getting about 140 miles out of 20 quid which is about 40mpg , that's around town but with a few longer runs, is that about right or is it a toich low ?, i got 100 out of my old type r which i thoight was crap but i suppose percentage wise its nearly 50% more
