I've been driving it round thinking that I'm using full throttle (where safe!) but I've still got 1/4 of the pedals travel left.

This seems wrong to me as none of my other Renaults have been like this.
Can any one confirm if this is indeed a fault or correct for my car.

Would a new throttle potentiometer fix it?
Hi Ian ,I have a similar problem on my Initial Sports Tourer which I think is becoming quite dangerous.
I also get this rather odd fell to the accelerator whereby it travels to what appears its floored position.If you put a little more pressure the pedal travels a further 25%!! a bit odd I think.

Renault say's its normal.
Now for the dangerous bit. Yesterday I had a full load of passengers which required more throttle to accelerate and when I de-clutched to change gear the rev's hit the rev limit maximum and I notice that the throttle pedal had remained down.
Unfortunately because I was travelling at 25 mph the clever electronic start /stop circuits prevented the engine from being switched off until I was stationary. Quite good because the power steering would have ceased to function whilst I was moving.
I have not found any reason why the throttle stays down yet.
I can only say that it has nothing to do with the mat because it can't more if the two fixings are in place but I have removed the mat whilst I do more checks.
So watch this spce.
I hop this helps Brian
