Mpg Issues On A D-Cat T180 Resolved :)

Recommended Posts

Straight to the point, i bought my T180 back in May.

Took a trip to Wales (just over a 2hour drive). I took is steady driving as i'd filled up a full tank and wanted to see what MPG i could get out of it.

I got no more than 32mpg!!!!

A full tank was almost used on a trip that was all round there and back.....300miles.

So i gave the car a good bit of TLC after reading up;

1) Changed the air filter

2) Had an Oil changed (bought Mobil 1 ESP 5W/30)

3) New Fuel filter fitted

4) Currently in the process of having my Oil filter fitted (see previous post of problems removing the cap)

5) I cleaned the EGR (didnt even look as though it had ever been cleaned)!

Anyway took it for a spin round the entire M60 and the MPG has improved alot, average was around 40-42mpg.

Just thought i would post this to anyone who has had similar problems with their MPG.

Off to West Sussex next week so should hopefully see an even better improvement once my Oil filter has been changed too :)

Thats great news, its amazing how much difference a change of filters can make.

Speaking of which, my fuel filter is overdue a change...

Its good you have seen the improvment but motorway mileage should be 45+ ideally

Recommend you clean the MAF sensor as well

Gently & using soft cotton buds ideally. You can sometimes see the muck coming off it ! Some people use an electrolyte spray - sparingly, then wipe off any excess.
