it could be a temp or lambada sensor sending wrong signals to the ecu causing it to overfuel but without a scan its hard to say

Coincidentally, I was going to ask how many miles you should be getting out of a 1.25 with 15 petrol. I seem to be getting about 100. Does that sound about right?

(I still have the problem of my oil going somewhere I do not know. Drinking oil is this car)
