since the 4th service if the fuel tank is below half full the motor will only fire on on 2nd attempt.Never had starting problem prior to last service! Has the fuel filter been correctly fitted? Above half to full tank, no problem. Is fuel syphoning back when tank less than half full? Starting problem gives indication of fuel starvation,but tank is @ least 50% full. What do you reckon?

Since the problem appears to be tank level related i would tend to remove fuel pick up strainer in the fuel tank and check it.

My Rio ice is out of warranty. Purchased Nov 2007 (reg57) done 19300 miles. Birdmans advice could be a possibility but why should the problem begin the day after the 4th service in november 2011. Prior to the service there was never a problem. As the service, replacement absorber bush and MOT cost £880, I have been reluctant to return to my dealer in derby to avoid further cost.
