Car runs so much better now!
Well yesterday I took to doing an ECU reset followed by a throttle reset. Waited all the appropriate timings, which wasn't too bad. Anyway, once all connected back up, took her for a drive and the 156 was a lot less hesitant than it had been, and an altogether smoother drive.
Got to the point where I needed some fuel, so decided to fill up with some Shell V-Power. No noticeable difference, but after about half hour or so, the car was even smoother than after the reset. I can happily drive along at 30mph in fifth gear without it feeling lumpy (previously, it was a very lumpy drive and found myself changing down to fourth to be done with it).
I've already noticed that my fuel consumption seems a lot better after driving approximately 70 miles, and hopefully it will stay this way!
A lot of useful posts and theads on this site helped me to get this result, so thanks to you guys I've got a much better running car for next to no outlay (barring fuel!)
