    I suppose in effect the "choke" is on longer so the engine will run rich for a while longer untill the engine reach,s working tempreture.

    I've got a 2.2DTi ahnd have noticed that over the last 2 months that the average MPG has gone down by 2 - 3 on average. I put it down to having a longlife back box fitted! Hopefully it has something to do with the weather, can't wait for the summer, this time of year is really getting me down - the car needs washing every day
