Will do, need to just time to have a muckabout, you can drive along with laptop on and monitor but not the same.

You should be shooting for 50 MPG + I reckon although due to changing clocks all the time I have not had an accurate figure for a whole tank yet, will let you know. T:

let us know how you get on with the mpg gauge wouldnt mind doing that :) think im getting just shy of 40mpg

Doing 1995 Carravelle Syncro here in the States in August. Ahu with mods. Wondering about R&P ratios. 5th gear easy, but if I want taller R&P I believe I have to do front and rear. Any info would be helpful. Going from 2.5 petrol.
Cheers

Hi, hope you're all well!

I've just found out this morning that living in London and driving a 2001 T4 is gonna get a whole lot more expensive from next year.
Basically the engine in my panel van doesn't meet EU Emission regulations, and my options are..:

1.fit a filter by a government recommended garage for £3000.00.. not really an option!
or
2. take the opportunity to upgrade my power plant to a 1.9 tdi..

I'm a little bit mechanically minded, but not confident enough to do a tricky engine conversion.. even if I did have the space and equipment to pull it all off!

So what I wanted to know from you awesome peeps is , What are the costs more or less for the full conversion and can anyone recommend a place that might be willing to undertake such a feat.

as always your time and effort is very much appreciated

Regards

Duncan

PS. sorry, in order for it to meet regs. it must be euro 3?? which apparently is anything after 2002.
cheeers
That rules out the AHU/AFN/1Z lump then bud. My most constructive suggestion is to move out of London :*:*
