Hi guys, ive got a 06 plate t5 1.9tdi 105hp and ive got really poor fuel economy currently getting about 400 miles from a full tank! i heard from a mate that it could be a faulty temperature sensor on the thermostat housing, so i changed it but still no luck! so if any of you lot have got any ideas it would be helpful, also it would be helpful to know what kind of milage i should be getting out of a full tank.

thanks

Is that a "fully brimmed tank down to an actual empty tank" or a "full to till the pump cuts out & empty till the light comes on" or a combination ? - what is the actual mpg you are getting ?

Hi all, i have a 174bhp when i drive around town i get 400 miles to a tank ( brimmed to fuel light ) and that works out to 25mpg :eek: i had a free flow exhaust fitted testerday and im off to Pendle Performance next Sat to have a re-map :D so will let ya know if i get any gains, i drive the van with fuel consumption in mind, not like granny smith but not hot footing it everywhere.

The exhaust came from pro flow in Dudley, Dev the lad that did it worked his c''k off 4 1/2hrs later :D, one thing thats on my mind though, it is supposed to be a cat back system and they left about a metre of the mid section on, but they look great and are nice n quiet

My 57 plate 1.9 104 best has been 560 miles but thats driving normal. The adv is working out at about 500 miles to the tank. which isnt too bad really.
I do hope to have it remapped at some point for better fuel comsuption.
