GT Lower turbo hose question


I've just had a look under my GT and the lower turbo hose is going in the usual place - it doesn't seem to have got a hole yet - but it's not far off.

I've also noticed that where it attaches to the turbo it looks as though the jubilee clip hasn't been fitted very well so it's had a poor seal and it's been blowing - leaving a black oily residue on the turbo.

My GT has only been getting around 36 mg around town since i bought it and 40 mpg on the motorway. Will replacing this hose increase my mpg?

I've also noticed that she's a bit sluggish until 2000 revs - will this hose have been causing this as well?
