I wonder if it was really bad fuel causing the issue.
E fuels only are good for 6 weeks before it degrades and goes bad.

Difficult to understand how bad fuel would only affect one cylinder?

I was thinking the same thing, but I have no other explanation. I can't drive very far yet, since I have some repairs to do before I can get it titled in my name. I guess think of it as going through MOT? The car has a salvage title from going through a fence and ruining the front bumper, left fender, and deep scratches in the paint down the left side. I suspect the paintwork alone made the car a total loss. But it's fantastic.

Bad fuel can cause Injector(s) to get stuck, clogged up ect. But it could also block the little filters in the top of the injectors. But you are right. It's just a theory. The chances that it would affect just 1 injector is very small. Imbroke moved the injector around so if it would be 1 bad injector the fault code would move to.

If it actually was an injector. Bad fuel will affect the weakest parts first as its harder to ignited.
