The egr valve aids emissions not economy,The ONLY way it could possibly affect performance is if its stuck open allowing boost pressure to escape back into the exhaust and you,d notice if it was for sure.If it aint broke dont mend it.Your economy is fine.People are obsessed with cleaning egr vlaves for some reason.My dads last lag 1.9 dci racked up 230,000 miles and is still running now without any egr attention and it still gave good economy.
