I'm keen to see if there is a link between the sort of fuel people are using and the Toxic Fume Light flashing. I was wondering whether the injectors are getting clogged up by supermarket fuel that does not have the same level of detergents as fuel from the major companies (Shell, BP etc).

I've been using Shell Optimax all the time and have no TFL come on but I've only done 2500miles.

I had that problem bout 5 months ago and it turned out to be a fucked engine coil. That was replaced and all was good till last week. On monday as i started the car it flashed up for about 5 seconds.

Luckily working for renault i was able to run it down to the training centre and straight onto CLIP. Turns out i had a destructive misifre....whatever that is..... In short its not letting me rev any higher that 6000 rpm at the moment. New coil time apparently. Normally I can normally redline 110mph appx in 4th. at the moment i struggle to get 95mph (all on private airfield :))

Mine was everytime I was at a standstill or in slow moving traffic, didn't matter what fuel I used.
One error log clip showed me was a low fuel warning. It was however a coil problem.

Mine sometimes comes on when I was at a standstill or in slow moving traffic.

Bizarrely enough my toxic fume light started flashing for the first time last night (well the first time since I got it with 10k on the clock anyway - it's now done 14.6k) and this morning the service light stayed on and a 'Check Ignition' message came up on the dash.

I'd only used Optimax up until Satuday, when I put some Tesco 97 in because I had a '5p per litre off' voucher.

Anyway by a stroke of luck my car was booked in to the stealer for some other work today, so they can look into this while they're at it...

Mine used to come on at standstill or in slow moving traffic.

Took it to the stealers, had a fuel level sensor replaced in the tank. Light came back on have had a fuel injector replaced. No problem what so ever since then.

Apparantly a sticking fuel injector is a common fault. The type of fuel used didn't make any difference as far as i can see.
