Hi, i noticed air bubles (small ones) in fuel line near pump. So far car runs normally so no complains, but i know that it should be there. What may cause this and how to fix it? :) May it be cause by the fact that i run mostly with 5 liters in fuel tank? :D

Try running with a full tank and looking for the bubbles, you will soon know if its due to running with a near empty tank.

ANyways today when i had non starting engine situation i used pump, and i saw that there is some empty space in tube, and the we filled 90% of full tank, so this still happens on almost full tank, when car is not running.
IS this bad? maybe bad when this happens on running caR?
