  1. Hi. I have a 2011 Avensis D4D 2.0 estate. I commute to work and am getting 41mpg . Is this normal?? Also I've had an intermittent problem since owning the car with smoke from the engine when I stop at junctions etc. Is this anything to do with DPF and is it worth getting it cleaned if it will improve performance?
  2. It happens about twice a week maybe. I will get the DPF checked by a mechanic. Thanks
  3. Hi. I am a new member to the forum. I have owned a 2011 Toyota Avensis estate D4D for 3 and a half years. It has been a very reliable car for my 70 mile round work commute. However I have an intermittent problem with smoke smelling like diesel fumes getting into the car when I stop the car at junctions/traffic lights etc. Has anyone got any ideas what the fault is? I took it into Halfords and another garage and they couldn't find any problems. I think it happens when it rains more than when the weather in is dry if be that helps?
  4. Hi. I've had this problem on/off for a while now. I took my car to 2 garages when it was under warranty and both said they couldn't find anything wrong with the car. The fault seems to happen intermittently when the car comes to a stop . There is a strong smell of fumes coming from the engine area and smoke. This only lasts maybe 30 seconds and then goes but the smell is really strong and I worry when having my kids in the car. Does anybody have any idea what this problem is and how to fix it?
