Re: cutting out

Fuel gauge is probably a dodgy sender (in fuel tank accessible through plate in boot floor "i believe")

Only time mines ever started cutting out were a knackered maf sensor though could be other stuff, idle air control valve for instance, worth a search on the net an see what it brings up.
