    glow plugs only aid starting in cold weather they do not effect fuel consumtion,as you say though you will need them working in winter with the Dti,engine will still start in cold with 3 working plugs but obviously 4 are better

    Only starting with 3 plugs will use more diesel as its not heating properly, glow plugs do continue shortly after start up to keep the engine warm, without the plugs the engine uses more fuel on start up and uses more to warm the engine up. i made it through winter with only 2 working plugs but i thought i had a different problem and kept unplugging the thermostat sensor. As for removing them, im unsure sorry mate.
