    Default funny v6 diesel

    hello i just wandered, my car does this randomly when i could be driving it normal or giving it beans, it starts to go all funny like when you take your foot off when your moving the instant figure normally goes to 999.9 MPG but when its having this funny spell it it switches between 313 and 353 MPG when foot is off and when stationary totally different engine not fan is on and when you rev you get a wastegate chatter, i wouldnt mind as long as i knew what exactly it was doing and it also burns shedloads of fuel when doing it. anyone else had it or know what it is ?? the car has had a new turbo and has full service history at 72k miles

    It's a 2005 3.0 V6 CDTI, so it will only have a DPF if it is an estate, is this the case?

    It sounds to me like the SCV is nearing the end of its life, not another one!
