I’ve done a fair bit of driving.

Normal bit of driving first since the last update, and it returned 29mpg. Great.

So a few weeks ago I did a trip to Heathrow from Stourbridge, constant speed of 60mph, and I swear I was getting high 30’s. After 500 miles on the tank, I filled up on the 25th July and it returned 32mpg. Great!

Since then somethings gone awry. I noticed today that it seems to have used a bit more diesel. Filled the half tank up today, 168 miles since the fill above, and it’s returned 24mpg.

There are two possible causes. The first is the PCV thing which I’ve ordered a replacement of, as there is a bit of oil where the intercooler joins the throttle body. £51 Thanks Mr.T.

The second possibility is that the diesel I bought is shit. I filled up at an independent as it was 5p less than my usual Sainsburys. Sainsburys is the same now so I filled up half the tank today with it.

I’ve not really noticed it down on power, there’s no smoke, just this oil residue. The PCV will be here tomorrow so I’ll fit that and keep an eye on it.
