Haven't delved into fuel tank problems, so I don't really know. But I think it's something to with the tank construction being flatish and to avoid fuel ending up on one side of the tank when cornering, it's divided up into sections. And the trim problem probably means fuel is unevenly distributed between these sections. Might be something to do with the fuel pump.

As for "VAUXHALL SERVİCES ARE HORRIBLE AND I DO NOT TRUST ANYONE...", think I feel likewise over here!
