well been gettin 40 mpg for a while so went and saw a cgti boy with vagcom

discovered engine is not getting hot enough ???? which is retarding the timing

hence no smoke and 40 mpg so need to change thermostat .

he also deleted mi EGR on vag com which got me home a little quicker i think

once thermostat is changed should get better economy and once MOT done

gonna knock out mi cat too

I can only dream of 40mpg in me rado lol

i need a cheap little runaround like this myself at some point soon.

what kind of MPG should you be getting out of interest?
