  1. So then

    There is a long topic and an answer, but i got lost and confused with the bits in between.

    Poor mpg sr180, was it the dpf or the 5th spark plug thing or a sensor.

    My car is very poor average 27mpg and 29 on a long run.

    Any help please 58 plate sr180


  2. Im all confused now..so my 58 plate sr180 does a poor 26 to 28mpg..motorway is not much better..so how was the poor mpg sorted..5th injector. What ever that is ?...dpf..or something else..? Simple terms please..i have had bottles of fuel additives and cleaned egr and some partial inlet manifold... 

  3. Hello to all

    I have a 58 plate sr180 Auris and my mpg is rubbish..i mainly do motorway driving..the egr is clean, ive tried 56 mph 60 and 70 etc..im getting 38mpg tops and 32 around town.Would a new shape exhaust help..my car has been serviced and a bottle of injector cleaner...any idea please..i dont carry lots of stuff in the car and tyres are ok too

  4. Just a thought.if you had a loose fitting fuel filter..eg..sucking in air somewhere..it would be rough at low revs, but might self seal when its warmed up ? Just a thought !

  5. You dont really need to fill up with v-power fuel.i dont think a fuel company would make or sell bad fuel that damaged your engine.a good long run or decoke or an additive that desolves the build up should do.i hope its not poor compression ?

  6. I have an idea off a good mechanic.some engine/decoke/egr additive to fuel cleaners do actually work, but you need to check out the temperature that they need to reach to do there bit.some fuel additives will make your car run at a higher combustion, you just need to be aware to give your car a good run in a lower gear and dont keep adding to your fuel tank all the time.i dont know if the JLM stuff is any good, but there are plenty good write ups.

  7. Please keep us all informed.i have read that adfitives to fuel dont really clean the egr and the best way is to do it yourself.i have poor but not bad mpg, so im looking forward to see if its your problem.i know there is a post on here saying cleaning their egr gave them better mpg, but its good to have lots of info...good luck
