Fuel mileage readings
« on: July 18, 2020, 04:10:32 pm »
Hi everyone, haven't asked for any help for a while as everything seems ok, then lockdown happened.
    Before we weren't allowed out at all I filled the tank on our Stylance 140 bhp, and the mileage showed as
675 mls, which we usually see, but then we haven't been anywhere apart from a short run (2mls) to keep
some charge in the battery. I decided this wasn't worth the effort and now run the car for 5mins three times a
week, and use a battery charger. Since we can now use the car I find the full tank mileage has dropped to 420mls.
  Has anyone any ideas please, all suggestions gratefully received.

Hello Mr Johnson, how are u.

The car has detected that u have been getting bad fuel economy of late (because of all the idling and short journeys) and has accordingly revised its prediction of how far u will manage to go on that tank of fuel.

Fear not my nervous friend, the figure will go back up once u start driving normally again.

I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

Thank you very much for your reply, I was hoping it was something of that nature. I was hoping it was nothing
to do with the EGR valve, I had to replace that a few years ago and the scars haven't healed yet.!!!!
