    Hi all, Wife has a 1.4 2007 Clio 3 dynamique. I had been helping my dad with an issue with his corolla, and had been looking at fuel trim values to rule out vacuum leak / sticky injector etc for him. So I decided to look at the clio's values for interest, and was surprised by what I found. Now...

  6. Fuel Economy
    Hi there. I've noticed a trend recently whereby quite a lot of threads are concerned with this topic. Probably a result of the economic situation and the price of fuel, we are all much more 'cost-conscious' than before. The purpose of this thread is to try to explain why...

    Hi Last month I bought me self (quite) nice Laguna. Its 2006 2.0T 6 speed manual Sport Tourer. Only 70k on the clock fully serviced. I was expecting to see some better fuel economy from this engine. And I am going mad now about it. I took the car for the test period. I am driving like a 60...

    Does anyone have the figures I need to do my own tracking and camber on an 05 1.6 Scenic Expression? I've tried searching this forum and googling it but, although I found lots of methods for checking them (just logic really) I haven't been able to find the actual figures. Cheers guys

    Hi all Haven't had my 1.6 '03 megane priviledge long so I'm wondering what the MPG figures are like? Around town I get about 28MPG (with careful driving) and down the motorway I hit 40-45 MPG. Is that in the range that it should be? Thanks

  16. Laguna
    I have a 1.8 16v 2002 laguna tourer. On ave I get 30 mpg which I think is pretty low. I drive conservatively and dont use the air con or auto feature on my climate control. I also make sure not to fill the car up as I feel 70 litres of fuel being carried around isn't good for fuel consumption...
