    Default 2.0T sluggish 1500K-2K revs ?

    Hi, hope someone can help! only noticed today, but my car seems sluggish between 1500 revs & 2000 revs (until the turbo kicks in), I would not say "flat spot" as such, just not as repsonsive as normal recently done the air box mod & replaced the air filter, and got fuel from a garage I have not used before. was thinking see how I go after I re-fuel, then perhaps put the air box back to standard. I do need to check to see If I need new spark plugs, I changed the oil/filter 2 weeks ago. any ideas would be appreciated!

    hi mate, was the fuel "cheaper" than your usual brand? sometimes i have problems with it feeling lumpy if i fill up with cheaper supermarket stuff other than say for example esso/shell or bp

    think its going to be fuel as if it was wanything else the eml would be on

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    As I use both standard and super unleaded I would say that the octane of the fuel does not in itself cause or alleviate flat spots.
