Cleaning Diesel injectors....
Hi all, still trying to improve the economy on my 159 1.9JTDm which according to the onboard computer is currently showing 35mpg.
I was wondering if anyone has removed the injectors and soaked the tips in a chemical cleaner?
I know it's best to ship them off, but I was hoping for a cheap alternative, i.e. soaking tips in redex for a night or two and then refitting.
I have already removed all the injectors, brush cleaned(covered in ****) and refitted....the result= 36.5mpg.
I raised a thread regarding injector leak back check but got no replies, so hoping that someone has done something similar.
Has anyone seen an increase in mpg after a fuel filter change?
