replace fuel pump thats in the tank.

you will find this happens when the tank is low-ish on fuel too.

mate is it only doing it when you have say less than a 1/4 of a tank of fuel ?

would be the swirl pot as you push all the fuel to the passengers side around sharp turns

vs commodore
Sometimes when the fuel pump is replaced,the in tank fuel return line doesnt get reconnected to either the swirl pot, or to the fuel pump assembly,the fuel pump pickup sits in this swirl pot so it doesnt get starved for fuel when cornering when the fuel level in the tank is low.Its usually a dodgey mechanic or backyarder that does this sort of thing as it can be very difficult to reconnect the in tank return line.Especially when the tank is still in the car.
