156 2.0 (cf2) mpg
Temp takes 5 mins to get to the 80 ish mark. Alfadiag reads it as 90.
I changed the rad 18 months ago
Stat was changed in 2006
While I am looking for work, I take the Mrs to the nearest, safest tube station. I live in Chadwell Heath so that means taking her to Barking. 5 miles there and another 5 back.
I do not stop the engine when I reach there, merely watch her go into the station and then drive off.
At the weekends, might drive to Lakeside shopping centre or Ikea in Thurrock, 11 miles there and 11 miles back.
Sometimes I visit mum in South London, 12 miles there etc etc etc
This last tank lasted me 247 bloody miles, left it as late as possible playing the orange light game. Brimming tank took 61 litres.
What the hell is going on!!!!
Rough calcs show around 25 ish to the gallon.
What could be affecting this, lambda? Got alfadiag, what would be a bad lambda reading?
I do have a leaky exhaust somewhere but could that affect MPG so much?
