Still very confused

Well a couple of weeks have gone by and I am slowly coming around to the JTS. I cleaned and checked as many connections as I could find, changed the spark plugs and bought ignition packs on ebay just in case. I cleaned the thottle body and the MAF as well.
The car now seems to be running alot better, tick over is OK, one thing, the day it really freaked me out, lousy performance, tick over all over the place was due to the oil filler cap becoming loose. Strange but true.
The car is very pleasant to drive but not to be compared with my old 155 or the V6, again the trade off is fuel consumption, I checked from tank full to tank full and averaged 31mpg. This was mixed driving, lots of short local runs, a couple of cross country jags and some motorway at decent speed.
I am fairly pleased with that result.
One other think I did, and do not laugh as I normally do not agree with "snake oils" but I put a tin of BG44K in the tank. The jury is still out on the results of this stuff.
Incidentally, if anybody needs a coil pack for one of these give me a call.
