i have had a number of egr problems and odd engine faultts in the past, i now only use BP or Shefuel and put about one in 5 fills use ultimate or similar, have had no faults since and get 2-3 miles per gallon more. Avoid supermarket fuels at all cost they do not have the additives to keep the engine clean

Just an update having carried out some tests which may strike a chord with someone to point at the source of the faults.

On the injection faulty - I've found that it occurs after I've drive for about 6 - 7 minutes (4 minutes @ 30-40 mph) enter motorway accelarate to 70 mph, spend 2 minutes @70mph - take my foot off the accelarator slowing from 70mph to 50mph (approaching roadworks). This is having started from cold after a night in the drive and is totally repeatable. Once the engine has been run during the day it never re-occurs.

On the ABS and ESP problem it only occurs when I put the steering on full left lock. This is also totally repeatable. Doesn't happen on full right lock.

So over to you guys, anyone had a similar set of circumstances - hopefully with a solution.

It gets better and better, just been to my local Renault specialist to run diagnostics on it and there were 25 faults in the memory:-

DF128 Robotised Gearbox or at CAN connection, fault on connection

DF021 Engine immobiliser Unidentified electrical fault

DF002 Throttle potentiometer circuit coherence between track 1 and track 2

DF021 Engine immobiliser Unidentified electrical fault

DF136 Accel pedal motorised throttle circuit, Coherence between the pedal position and the motorised throttle position

DF022 Computer, Computer fault: motorised throttle command

DF022 Computer, Computer fault

DF022 Computer, Memory zone fault

DF134 Instrument panel connection, Unidentified electrical fault

DF131 AT convertor

DF082 Petrol <-> LPG Connection, Unidentified electrical fault

DF134 Instrument panel connection, Unidentified electrical fault

DF132 Heated Windscreen, Unidentified electrical fault

DF249 Automatic transmission, Torque reference value

DF083 ABS-> Injection interface, Unidentified electrical fault

DF285 Air heater

DF055 Cylinder 4 Injector circuit, Unidentified electrical fault

DF137 Motorised throttle, Motorised throttle limits search fault

DF137 Motorised throttle, Programmed values

DF006 Knock sensor circuit, OBD fault

DF003 Air temperature sensor, OBD fault

DF004 Water temperature sensor circuit, OBD fault

DF005 Pressure sensor circuit

DF017 Flywheel signal information, OBD fault :flywheel target

I don't believe I'm really getting all of these faults so does anyone know if there is a common point on all of these such as a connector.

My local Renault guy cleared all the codes and it seemed better for a day and then yes back to getting the ESP/ABS fault and the fuel injection fault. One thing I have noticed is that I never get the 2 sets of faults at the same time .......suspicious or not. Any ideas
