    i had this mate, and i benefitted from a tune up at my local car tuners £45 i think i paid and it sorted out the fueling, timing etc etc. Im now gettin bout 320 out of a tank driving like mr daisy (a bit faster than ms daisy)

    I've started to get poor fuel consumption again recently too, getting 160 miles on half a tank, normally it should be 200 by the time it reaches half way (the gauge doesn't appear linear)

    i think the name for the tune is a krypton tune and basically i just said to them it running very juicy at the moment and he said he will plug in and sort all the fueling out and he said after my timing was out aswell. he also plugs in and tells if you have any fault codes ad can clear them. money deff well spent cos it has increased my mpg by about 100miles a tank

    hope it helps fellas
