    Default MPG before and after airbox mod!!

    Hey guys, what kind of difference in MPG did you get after you did the airbox mod, Im not a fast driver by any means, but its good to know i'v a little more torque if needed.

    To be honest mate mine seemed to go up, but only slightly as when I first got it, best I got before was about 28mpg and now it sits at about 30, so as said not a great deal of improvement ,but combined with smoother rev range performance and slightly better mpg it is a worthwhile mod' in my opinion.
    Cheers Pete

    Yep, Up!! I know, I was expecting the same thing at the time for it to go down!, done this mod' about 18 months ago now and still sits around that 30 mpg mark, maybe the fact it's now running a tad more efficient

    as I said in http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111697 I should be able to comment tomorrow or day after on th mpgs

    the car does feel smoother and more responsive since doing it but I also cleaned the boost valve at same time, so I couldnt be sure which is responsible for the improvements noticed
