It may well be that there was a faulty glow plug but yours is a compression ignition engine and the glow plugs are not spark plugs in a petrol engine. I would not expect to see a difference in mpg on that. More probable would have been a reprogramming of the injection system. Was this mentioned?
Thanks for the pointer sans prix .
Nothing was even mentioned to me about a reprogramming of the injection system .Should this have been done then to try to cure the problem ?
It was not even offered me as a solution.!!!!
