    Default issue after fuel filter change

    Hey guys,

    A couple of weekends ago i changed the fuel filter on my 1.9cdti 150 and straight away i noticed a definate drop in performance and throttle responce.I can still get upto speed but it takes more pedal travel than it used to and it feels like the car is holding back throughout the driving range.

    The thing is my fuel consumption dropped but 40% so instead of getting 44 miles to a tenner if mixed driving i got 75 miles which i thought was fantastic and it didnt bother me too much about the power issue but now the car is starting to use more fuel again.

    Could it be a duff fuel filter? i admit i did get it from ebay as it was only £8 and a brand i hadnt heard of.Also i made the classic mistake of not doing up the housing tight enough the first time and diesel started weeping out of the top but i quickly took it back off and nipped it up a bit tighter and all was good.

    This probably isnt linked but i thoguht id mention it aswell but i also did the extra earth mod at the same time but i dont think that would effect the car in that kind of way?

    What do you think guys?
