    Default 2.2 Petrol Failed first MOT

    Is it common for vectras to fail their first MOT, my comany car 2.2 Dirct SRi XP. Has failed for High emissions at 66k.

    The garage have had it for a week and i still havn't heard anything back from sherwoods.

    Might go some way to explain why I have only been getting 280 miles out of a full tank ( 54 Lts anyway) for the past year.

    thats 23.7 mpg, at least you dont have to pay for it to be put right. at my last mot (the cars second one) the tester said my emissions were very low, and VECs were very good at low results. let us know what the problem was,, when it is fixed.

    is the mpg that i get the norm for this car? if i use BP ultimate I get about an extra 20 miles for the tank.
    Crazy thing is since i get charged for private milage , my boss keeps telling me that my milage sheets can't be true. Fact is the 2.2 gets parked on an evening and weekend and i use the wifes diesel instead. I would be mad to use my company car for anything otehr than business, their the mugs not me.

    see how it goes when the emission problem is sorted, as you get more MPG with BP, your direct may be petrol sensitive, I get low MPG with ESSO petrol, strange thing is using morrisons juice gives me the highest mpg, but with morrisons( or any supermarket fuel) petrol I always give it a shot of redex injector cleaner, I am convinced that using redex is the reason that I get very good MPG out of my 1.8.

    Mine just failed it's first MOT aswell.. Someone had put my private reg on the car using non British Standard numberplates

    Annoying thing is they have been on the car since i bought it new 3 years ago and had no attention from the police at all..

    Hope you get your car sorted though..

    well sherwoods have now had my car 2 weeks, apparently they thought they would tighten some belt. that hasn't worked so they are going to replace a different part.
