    Default 1.9 cdti 150 now poor economy

    Last week my alternator packed up, so ordered a new one, the car was sat with the battery disconnected for about 7 days. Put the new alternator in and all runs good.... except it seems to be using ALOT more deisel than before (about a third of the tank in 100 miles!)
    Before all this i was getting 600 miles to a tank so something must be wrong. Does the ECU reset itself and needs to settle after the battery is off for so long?

    Any other ideas??
    I have checks all fuel lines and cant see any leaks


    Might be worth mentioning its a 06 model with 50k miles

    Hi my cdti 150 also had to get the alternator changed about 4 weeks ago, my diesel seems to be fine, just cant get rid if the spanner on the dash, hoping for it to reset itself soon, was it a side garage or main dealer who replaced it?

    One of the guys at my work replaced it for me, he is a mechanic of 20 years so is pretty handy.

    600 miles to a tank? that is still pritty poor TBH

    Might be worth running some redex through system, then after using all contaminated fuel (diesel with redex in) then have fuel filter changed
