you could stop it by pulling one of the fuel plastic pipes off the fuel filter housing, have a bottle ready to catch the spilt fuel. it will stop running after a minute or so.

i have heard of this problem before and read what caused it but have forgot sorry! its bust boost diaphragm i think?

forgot to say if you use this method, when you wanna start the car again you will need to take the pipe back off and pump the primer on fuel filter housing till fuel comes out to bleed the system down.

you may also have to bleed the pump and injectors afterwards but hopefully not.

Until you sort out the problem.....
Frimly press the prake pedal, then put it in 1st gear, then pull the handbrake 'on', and finally let the clutch out. :L

Be careful not to let it lurch forward & hit something. Shouldn't do with both foot & hand brakes applied, lol.
