I unlocked the diagnostics and ran the fuel flow test at 7000 rpm. The original thread said that a reading of 140 was good. I hit a reading of 155. The car is a late '99 build that is 5 years and 9 months old with 35,000 miles on the clock. Am I just lucky or just too little mileage to run into a problem?

Sounds like your car is in very good shape!

The reading depends on temperature, barometric pressure and altitude and on fuel composition (how much alcohol is mixed into the petrol).

Do you have that info, please?

BTW, when you have that info, please post in the MAF test thread, so we keep all the MAF / fuel flow testing info in one place for the benefit of newcomers.
