Re: Grand Espace Dynamique 2.0 DCi 175 .. advice?

Hi, there are + and - attitudes to FAPs, I accept the car came with it and that's that. The cars performance is more than I need but it is nice to know its there in reserve!
As regards an increase in consumption due to the FAP , maybe, all I am registering is an improvement over my last Espace.
FAPs, I understand will become a common feature on new diesels as time moves on.
If the car you are considering has a FAP , check the book to see how to look after it. Some French manufacturers required users to add a rather expensive additive every so often, thankfully my engine uses diesel for its clean/burn process.
