VZ SV6. VR BT1 Tonner
Ok so new battery, extra 20 litres fuel in, not been driven 2 months, started first kick, I moved it unfortunately half blocking neighbours drive. Left it running and let get up to temp then turned it off, Go to move it back and will turn over but not start? Suggestions, please help and don't say push it, it's a bloody steep driveway ;) Ta, Archie.

If it has spark then it must not be getting fuel.

Can you hear the pump prime when you turn the key to accessories?

BT1 tonner? Didn't know there was a VR tonner, let alone that Police used utes.

Pretty sure I heard pump when first started, not when trying to start again?
Yep it's a VR BT1 with VS Statesman cab. Built in '98 by "The New One Tonner Company" they built about 350 in Newcastle in the nineties from VN to VT

You could try hitting the tank from underneath with a 2 x 1 with the ignition on. But not sure if that would work on a ute.

Ah okay, sick. You got a thread of it somewhere? Always interested in seeing those. :)

Try taking the key out of the ignition each time and waiting a few seconds, a few cars I've been in only let you prime every few seconds to not strain the pump.
