Re: Miles per gallon 2.2 Dci Renault espace

Just seen this.

I dont get anywhere near 40 average.

I've done all the nighmare jobs and can pretty much do anything that goes wrong...

It goes well enough mind....dont think there's anything wrong, does emit a blast of smoke when you pull away or accelerate on the move. Air filter changed regularly plus fuel filter. It's done 115k now, I've owned since 74k where it had a new turbo .

I could probably crack 30 average, it will get up to about 34 on a run...

Suppose I could try the EGR valve. I clean it often though.

Could it be the air mass meter? I know on some cars if that goes the car goes into 'default' mode where it will drive fine but not optimum
