Something weird is happening to my GTV
Going home last night I noticed the car didn't feel as sprightly as it had. A couple of acceleration tests on the motorway confirmed it. It now feels as fast as my MX-5, whereas before it felt as fast my Mrs' 330i. So it's not in a limp-home mode but it definitely feels like 50 or so horses have gone wandering off.
As you know, I run LPG so I tried switching that off to see if running on U/L made any difference. Nope. So unless I have a duff batch of LPG and
the petrol's gone off, it can't be that.
Checked the oil - a little low (ooops) but not below minimum and I've now topped it up. No difference. Likewise I'm not running any flat tyres!
Weirdly, when I refuled last night, I did the calcs and the MPG has gone up to 30, it normally hovers around 25-26.
Maybe I've found an 'eco mode' on the V6 - all you have to do is press accelerator twice, brake four times, indicator on and off and then hit the accelerator again and hey presto!
God know how you turn it off though
I want my Gee-gee's back! Here gg Gee Gee
