    Default Weekend Workshop to increase your MPG diesel vectras

    Hi Im going to do a weekend workshop on trying to help increase your MPG if you own a diesel Vectra mainly when people are getting low 30's from there car and they shouldnt be I believe..its worked with my car. (sri 120 cdti)

    shall I just leave it as this post or put it in another section?

    Im going to try to explain so spanner newbies are encouraged to have a go aswell theres no need not to pay for people to do simple jobs to your car

    I hope Ive portrayed it as a good Idea

    My Car was doing 32 mpg and wasnt as powerful as I believed it should be the engine ran fine though which could be misleading to some

    for instance my airfilter box may aswell have had birds nesting in it
    filthy sensors and valve

    cleaned out debris ordered K&N (put standard back in for now) Instant improvement with throttle response and MPG slowly started to rise engine also picks up slightly earlier

    Ill post all this up on saturday with pictures

    ta chris
