Ya, pretty sure it didn't take 7 litres when I changed it.
Dave, I'll try some fuel treatment after I do the vacuum test, and as for the mx5, that's the baby and babies always take priority 馃榿

Did a vacuum leak test today, found 3 leaks, 1major leak where I hadn't reconnected a breather pipe to the air box after doing the supercharger service, another from the vacuum pump and one from the body of the maf.

This is the underside of the vacuum pump, I think where its leaking might be a relief valve so I left it alone

I did the diagnostic test again after fixing the other leaks and the missfire count is massively reduced, where it did count approx 250 misfires in 10min now it counted 19 in about 20min, I think I might leave it at that for the time being and see how it drives over the next few weeks, that is if I can drive it at all due to being put back into level 5 lockdown

Got a quick spin in it tonight, I had thought it was driving pretty good before but now its far better, much more responsive, hopefully that's the end of the problems.
Pics taken tonight
