Really weird, my car is cutting out from take off every time i fill up. Ive had new fuel pumps, filter, accumulator, wires, plugs, distributor car/rotor, fuel pump relay fitted recently. Sound like dirty injectors? Very strange why is it doing it when i put fuel in the car??

Does it also do if you take off the fuel cap for a few seconds and put it back on? I think your problem is simply the fuel cap.

you could be right. Ill check it out, if not maybe it could be the air flow meter or fuel pressure reg, fuel distributor?? I had a new oxygen sensor fitted could it be possible that the mechanic didnt fit it properly or would it be obvious or maybe the US o2 sensors are different to those in the australian cars (purchased off autohausaz).

Airflow meter on these cars is not your standard affair. It's that plate you see if you take the cover off the air filter housing. It's quite a pain to adjust.
