    city or motorway miles? £10 of diesel doesn't sound bad for 47 miles if it's city or combined, considering how much diesel costs these days.

    this bloke isnt telling you that he has a broken glow plug and he keeps asking the same question and everyone keeps telling him to check the vac pipes or just change them and the give it a service and to get the broken glow plug out . but every month he comes back on here asking the same questions. if he does the work everyone tells him to do it should help . if it just town you will only get around 34mpg . with a motorway and town 50/50 it will be around 44mpg . just motorway it will be around 50+ mpg .

    you can't but you can try this http://www.lasertools.co.uk/item.aspx?cat=371&item=7119 . but if you have done the egr and boost / maf and inlet manifold . plus changed the vac hoses and done a service and its still and problem dont you think you should save up and get it removed . plus you never say what sort of driving you do ? ( all motorway or 50/50 or just town and little roads .

    well there is your answer. if you only do little roads you will only get around 35- 40 mpg . its because you are using your gear box more and your right foot . because if you were on a motorway you would be in top gear and your foot would'nt be planted to the floor or should'nt and you would get 50+ mpg. a mixer of 50/50 will get you about 40-46 mpg
