Re: Poor mileage on my Clio

Hello and welcome! Your car should be doing a lot better than that!

If it was me I'd start by giving the car a good service, fresh oil , new oil filter, new air filter and new spark plugs.

Was the car previously used on short journeys? This could affect it too and once its serviced and taken on a few good long runs it should improve.
Currently in renofan's garage:
1997 Laguna 1.8 8v RT Sport. Black. V6 Leather Interior. Wood Trim on Dash. Monroe Gas "Reflex" Shocks. Sport Springs. Sparco Strut Brace. Team Dynamics Sword Alloys. 6 Disc CD Changer. Tow Bar. Crystal side repeaters. Currently 183,000 miles done. Airflow spoiler, new '00 model headlights, backlights and DRLs waiting to be fitted....
