    Hi fellas, I have a 2015 Trafic ll29 sport energy dci 120 and find it has very poor fuel economy. I'm spending a fortune on diesel and it just seems to be running very expensive. Does anyone else have a similar issue? When I cycle through the various readouts on the dash, the fuel economy reads...

    So, a little while ago I made a post about my pre-cat lambda sensor and it was marked as solved but it turns out it isn’t... I’m really clutching to straws now and really hoping someone can help or can throw any ideas onto this rather odd situation I have. My car, petrol 1.4 TCe Scenic has...

    I have a 2014 Grand Scenic cdi and the trip computer is having some problems… It shows the km, trip, km from last destination resetting. Everything else seems to be resetting every so often. It shows average, distance, range, fuel used and all of a sudden; it flashes dashes at me, if it was...

    Normally my MPG is good. A week back I drove 15 miles with petrol light on. The next day I filled tank to 1/2, covered 200 miles on the motorway. A few days later, filled tank to 1/2 again. Range was at 300 miles at this point. Left car for 4 days without use. Over the last 3 days I've covered...

    Hi, About 6 months ago I acquired a 2010 Renault Grand Scenic, petrol 1.4TCe (Dynamique TomTom) with roughly 55k miles. It’s a good vehicle but recently its developed some quirks which point to something being wrong. It has an almost ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ personality, sometimes it drives zippy...

    80k on clock, Just done oil+filter, air filter and fuel filter. Turbo had blown before I got it, but who ever put the new one in didn't clean the intercooler of oil. So I've done that and also replaced a boost pipe which had split. I've put in the good stuff from shell. I do about 10miles to...

    Hi my Megane II mpg has dropped considerably. Car is 2006 1.5 dci 106 ST facelift with 192 K which I serviced myself just before Christmas, all filters (oil, air, fuel & cabin) good quality oil etc. ( I was having this issue before the service but it has not improved) In the 5K...

    My current average MPG over a 3 week period is reading between 33.8 to 34.2. Is this normal? I roughly drive over 40 miles a day. Approximately 30 of those miles are at 60 MPH on the motor way in 5th. The remaining 10 miles are urban at 30 MPH in 4th and 5th gear (4th on slight gradients, 5th...

    Hi Folks, We have a 2008 2.0dci Grand Scenic. It has given us a fairly consistent 29-31mpg since owning it (since October 2016). My wife does use it for mainly city driving, so i'm not expecting crazy mpg. BUT...i would hope for a bit more from it. Would it be fair to give the egr a good...

    2014 kangoo 1.5dci 6 speed. Never seem to get more than 760-780 on the clock between tank refuel. Rear brakes squeak at low rolling speed of up to 15kph and maybe 30. Typically worse in cold slow moving traffic. Since I have no comparison I wonder is this range typical for a single tank...

    Hi Folks, I've just 'upgraded' my awesome 1.9 Dci laguna 120BHP for a dissapointing 2.0 Dci 150 BHP. :frown2: Disappointing because nothing much happens before 2200 RPM , but to be fair it does get itself shifting after that. No smoke , no nasty noises etc . The 120 was much quicker off the...

    Hi guys, I bought a Laguna 3 (57 reg) with 90k miles on the clock but I'm getting really bad MPG!!! I already did a full service but the best I could do until now is 26 MPG urban driving. I always had Renaults, all diesel, so I am aware of what these engines can do on this regard, but...

    Hi all, Recently had my Clio in for a service at my local Renault independent (which ended up costing over £1k as my suspension was rusted away - a total MOT catastrophe let alone unsafe), and before it would get MPG in the mid 40's - which isn't great for a diesel Clio at all but I didn't...

The car has regularly been serviced and in April 2015 it has been remapped; at the time it pull nicely and during a trip to Italy it was working fine. Two months ago I start to feel a...
