Punto Mk2 problems, advice needed please!

Hi there, im having a couple of annoying issues with my car and I need a few opinions/advice before I begin the lengthy (and tedious) dealer repair service.
number 1: Fuel... or the lack of getting it in the car! A few months ago I had a couple of occasions when trying to fill my car up the pump kept clicking off, so I figured it was me, the pump, or maybe I was pumping too quick (ooo errr!). It didn't happen often enough to worry about. Then it got worse and worse till today when it took me about 5 mins just to put 10 in the car! Its not my stupidity, its not the pumps (everyone does the same), so it must be the car. It does not matter which way I put it in or at which angle, the only way fuel is going in that car is if I press the handle so very gently so it delivers about a penny a second sometimes (yes, that bad!) well now I've had enough. I know now why it gives good MPG, so you don't have to go to petrol stations!
second problem/issue: I have noticed a strange noise coming from the steering wheel (or so I think) the last few days. I think its when its turning but its hard to hear since it can be very quiet. The only way I can describe it is that it sound like tin foil being squeezed into a ball in the palm of your hand, a rustling type noise. Tends to be easiest to hear at night with low revs with no music on, and it sound like its coming from the steering wheel as I said, but its so faint sometimes its very hard to tell!
Any opinions/help??
Thanks

Problem Number 2 could be the steering coloulm bush, from memory i think there was a recall on these, not sure if your vehicle will come within the chassis range.
