Mine has, I'm spending and getting less !

Sounds right to me considering the massive price increase in fuel lately.

Don't forget that your 20 quid is buying you a lot LESS diesel these days.

Blimey. I was getting that out of my 2004 wrx with a mix of motorway and town driving. There must be something wrong.

i think it may be the tuning box i added

when it is fittd it flags up the glow plug light to flash

yes the car goes like a bat out of hell but so does the diesel to go with it [:D]

funny as i never had this with my old box

From ?20 i can do about 200- 220 miles depending on how hard i drive it, full tank is about 550 miles pretty much the same before the remap. Imo tuning box,s seem to use more fuel. What sort of mpg are you getting?

thats the bloody annoying thing

when i didnt have the box on it was reading about 44 mpg on avarage

then fitted it shot up to almost 60mpg

but it certainly wasnt doing 60 it was more like 30

I am getting about 300 miles to half a tank (?20) out of my Revo'd GT TDI 110.............50mpg.

That is a combination of short distances at the weekend and A roads during the week (mad and calm driving)

A few months ago I took apart the inlet from the turbo and cleaned it as there was about 5+mm of gunk all inside it and that restricted the air flow.

After cleaning all that crap out (2odd hours of labour) I drove the car and she smoked like she was a chimney for about 5 min until the ECU adjusted with the increased air flow and everything has been fine since.

Economy and performance increase was noticed

i think this will be one of my jobs over the weekend

i will look at as many inlet parts as possible and try giving them a clean

Remember the price of fuel has shot up recently by around 20-25p a gallon. That may account for some of your ?'s per mile....
