Yeah i knew the diesel pump wasnt cheap thats why i got a petrol amongst other things but i wont start a conflict : )

I thought it only had one pump but yeah its the one bolted to the engine not sure if i should repair the seal or get a new pump.

Pauly,
That seems cheap (ish) the fuel pump for my wifes Suzuki Sierra was $140 including taxes etc. If I was you I'd purchase the new one to be sure, a lot of fuel pumps these days are piened (spelling) over so repairs are difficult, nothing would be worse than taking the pump out trying to repair it and then realise you need a new one anyway. My wifes had the same oil leak problem, the shaft the seal runs on is more than likely worn so if you replace the seal it would more than likely only be delaying the enevitable. My opinions.
Keep the shiny side up
