    More MPG.

    Hey all.

    This might sound unlike the norm, but I am not fussed with power, but I am envying the people getting 600miles from a tank of fuel (albet a CDTi...)


    I have a '99 2.0litre 16v CD-Di Estate, and I am getting on average 65-70mpg, but I want more.

    I regualrly service it (its due infact), I have a moosive K&N cone filter (see piccy) and well, I want more MPG. I mainly tootle along the motorways at legal speeds, but I also like to chuck it about the A-Roads

    Any tips, ECU thing, or owt I can do to get more?

    Ta

    I think you will struggle to see more unless you drive with a featherweight throttle foot and at 40mph everywhere. I have the DTi, and on my mixed 440 mile run of caining A roads and motorway cruising at average 85mph it worked out as 57MPG, which I got to admit, im well chuffed at, considering I was 2nd and 3rd gear overtaking lines of lorries on the A15, air conditioning on etc etc

    ahh fair play.

    Well I just saw it do 80miles to a gallon, so I am pretty chuffed
    I don't have the air con on, just a rear window open a fraction, and hardly any excess weight in the car.

    The engine is pretty standard, other than a K&N Cone....
