  1. 1.5 dci fuel consumption - are injectors blocked?

    I have a Grand Scenic 1.5 dci (2010) 178 000 km on the clock. A trip computer tell a diesel consumption is 7,4 l/100 km but calculated from tank to tank, the real consumption is 6,0 l/100 km. I think the reason for this is probably blocked diesel injector/injectors. On the other hand, is there...

    Other makes
    Hi guys, Been busy lately with the mortgage formalities and finally got stuck into 30 years of debt relationship with the bank >:) While wife`s Civic is getting older (2008), it still has low number on the counter - we have around 47K miles. Two things I do not like, terrible paint quality...
  3. Very high oil consumption Clio II 1.2 16v

    I took a turn at moderate speeds (about 50kph) and my oil pressure light went on. I assumed because the bend was tight and long that the oil pump couldn't get to the oil. As it turns out I had so little oil that it barely showed on the dipstick. The dashboard oil level indicator said i had...

  9. Clio 1.2 mk2 '02 High fuel consumption no warning lights

    My daughter's Clio suffered misfire, which turned out to be the coil pack, which was changed. Since then, it's been using a lot of petrol, and lacks power. There are no warning lights on, and reading the codes with a cheap reader only tells of Transmission temperature sensor faulty. It starts...
  10. Consumption and emissions zero-sum game

    Fuel Economy
    Hi, I have been thinking about emissions recently and how the MPG of newer diesel cars is reducing and how the hysteria of "pollution" is increasing. 1980's cars are bad, my first car was a Y reg 1.6 Cortina Mk5. It had a VV carb and it was smelly. Indeed recently I was driving along and I...

  12. Master movano high fuel consumption

    Hi I've been recording my mpg on my rwd 2.3td movano 2014 reg master in disguise and been averaging 18mpg which seems to me to be pretty poor considering it's not loaded nor carrying any thing ! Done quite a lot of checks to see what the possible problem maybe but to no avail ! Air filter fuel...
  13. Excessive oil consumption

    My Renault Trafic has needed it all topped up just 6 months after its annual service. The van is only 18 months old and has done very low mileage why is it using so much oil? Is this normal? The garage have checked it for leaks and found nothing untoward.
  14. New Captur Fuel Consumption

    Hi, My wife has just had a new Renault Captur Dynamique S Nav 0.9. First Renault we've ever had. I've got a question about the fuel consumption as it seems really poor to me. As a test I've just warmed up the engine thoroughly and then driven down the dual carriageway at a steady 60mph for 10...

    I have a brand new Renault Megane 2017 with R Link 2. It shows fuel consumption in km/l I want it in l/100km! I have looked through every setting in R-Link 2, been through every page in the manual and googled but I have found nothing about how to to it.
  16. Weird fuel consumption on trip computer

    Hello! I've got a 2002 Clio 1.5 Dci 82 HP. The on-board trip computer gives me a whopping 91 UK mpg (or 3.1 l/100km) reading, yet that is far from reality. It's usually around 60 mpg, maybe more if I'm really careful. The values were somewhat less optimistic a while back, but after changing...
