    have you cleaned the boost presure sensors / maf sensor and the egr valve . i would start there plus check that the jubilee clips out all tight on the big hoses . if they slip replace them

    I know it does not help you but your 55 miles for a tenner looks quite good compared to my 120 mils for 30 quid.

    you got 55 miles out of £10

    How many galons do you expect for £10 ?

    £10 /£1.38 ( Average diesel price ish ??)
    7.24 liters. / 5 (rought measuer of a gallon )
    you got 1.5 gallons / 55 miles
    you got 33 miles to the gallon not bad really if it was cold starts and town driving.

    please excuse any mis calculations it was back of a fag packet maths.
