You managed 9 months on your last tank, by my reckoning.

My last tank has lasted 7 years !!! not many miles mind you..

 

Back on topic I usually got around 25mpg...

 

Or and afternoon if 'making progress through the twisties' depending on how you look at it.

Well after my new iac valve - so far I'm up to 192 miles with between 1/3 and 1/2 a tank still left.

I'd be at the petrol station by now - that valves made a huge huge difference. Strange thing was the af ratio always looked right on freescan - I suppose it was just banging more fuel and air in all the time - buy wasn't showing as rich running ..........

Did have a bit of a rev splurge earlier though - so will swap the rest of the vac pipes later on when she's cool

My last tank full has lasted 4 months and not shown any consumption. Mind you the car is in pieces and I am still pondering about repairing or setting her on fire.

Nope - actually on the flat !!! I'm stunned to be honest in the change.

Did the revving twice tonight - vac pipes tomorrow - and going to have a good long hard look at the tps. I need an extension lead for the laptop and see exactly what changes when
