Fuel consumption low
My fuel consumption is low, about 350kms per tank (if that), and I wondered whether this had anything to do with the ignition issues (HT Leads loose on the top bank of cylinders) that I have been having.
In addition, (as an aside) I was wondering whether I could increase my idle, which currently sits at about 500. I have seached on this site, and it does appear that the idle is controlled electronically by the ECU, but as my car is the V6 TB, perhaps something is different?
Would an ECU reset help here? Disconnect battery for 45 minutes, reconnect, switch ignition on and leave for 90 seconds, switch off and leave key in for 90 seconds, start the engine and leave the car to idle for 15 minutes, turn off and leave for 10 minutes and then take the car for a blast......
