    Default Decent fuel consumption at last!

    Finally the 1.8 petrol is doing 30mpg urban, after a small fortune in parts:-
    both lambda sensors, new cat, new egr valve.
    it was just one thing after another with the old girl, ie sort one thing out then on came another fault then another and so on. But oh now its a gud un. just glad that i didn`t have to pay a garage to do the work so saved a fortune in labour costs also fitted new rear discs and pads. the total cost of parts was, are you ready? £515 man those cats are expensive, so now she`s staying put for the future unless the numbers fall in the right place!
