    Car drinking petrol/juttering. Have i found solution?

    Right posted once or twice. Basicly, my 2.2 astra is doing 18MPG (most people getting atleast 25-30 on here) and is jerking at about 1000 revs when im 'crawling' in traffic.

    Some simple and inexpensive things to try, with out to much hastle to myself.

    Clean EGR valve. With carb cleaner.
    Replace fuel filter.. with new one...
    Fix hole in flexi pipe. New pipe or patch.

    My question being, do you guys think this will probally fix my problems? Any mechanics out there your opinions greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    good to clean throttle body and the egr valve at the same time. replacing the fuel and air filter also could do it. the hole in the flexi pipe will make you drop in mpg. the things you have mention will definately help with your mpg but i couldnt tell you how much it would improve by. could aslo be worn spark plugs, dirty engine oil, dirty fuel injections. its a bit trial and error when there are no error codes to go by mate. could be a few niggly things causing the jerkiness and loss of mpg but what you have mentioned is the best place to start.
