i only get about 35 mpg as mine is mainly driving thru traffic in town about 15 miles. i then have a few trips in the day to pick kids up so again its very short journeys - less than 3 miles.
motorway wise, the best i've had is 60mpg as i did 60mph all the way to the outlaws (approx 120 miles).
if i was getting anything above 45mpg in town i'd be really chuffed.

Ryan, i too have a k&n to fit, just cleaned and oil it and may fit it tomorrow.
Lenny, my decat is booked in for Weds AM (gonna get the stuffing knocked out and getting an EGR blank fitted) and the rear silencer has gone too. strangely, the exhuast note sounds like a 5 pot!

35! My god that is poor well not suprising due to short journeys. Better off with a petrol. I bet your car doesn't even warm up in that time. Mine takes about five mins to warm up well by water temperature and about ten mins in the crap cold weather.

Oh really yeah fit it as I'd like to know what you think of it and I'll do the same when mine arrives. I managed to get mine for 35squids :)
As you mentioned Egr valve.... Where is it. I've had a look but I'm not really sure where it is. Is it round the back of the engine like the earlier models as in around 05. As mine is a 60plate I guess I'd have a slightly different engine as mine I think is a Euro5. I think not sure how to tell the difference between 4 and 5. But yeah anyways EGR valve.....

Is it worth me blanking it up to preserve it or leave it until it decides to break? If it's not broken don't fix it... As everyone seems to say but I like to think ahead with things. So good idea or bad.... If good where can I get a stainless plate from?
If bad I'll leave it be :)

oh really?? was it better than 55mpg before you got all of that done was that the reason why you went ahead with those mods.

Yes i used to get around 62mpg before the remap and exhaust but change of job left me closer to work than before so i got in to engine modifications then, because i could live with the decrease in Mpg but it didnt drop like i was expecting it to, and the car feels much better, have you driven a 90 model compared to your 110 theirs a big difference in pick up.

Sounds good mate,
Be sure to start a thread on this and some pictures,
Im sure your turbo will spool much quicker with no restrictions,
2.5 inch pipe would also help

No I haven't been in any other diesel. The closest I've been to a 90hp tdci is my girlfriends dad cmax. And that's all that. My car has more oooomph than that thing. Yeah deffs mate I'll make a thread. I don't know how to though. How do you? Is it same as making a new topic or different? I reckon it would spool much better which would be nice as I do have a flat spot around 1600 to about 1900rpm.

Do you know where the egr valve is? I want to blank it off to help more.
What do you think or anyone who is following this knows?

Yeah the cmax engine at 90 would be much the same as the focus was lol
New topic is the same as a new thread mate,
Egr location, i dont know to be honest,
But egr blanking,
Purchase a stainless steel blanking plate,
Because other types get hot,soften and break through, resulting in metal fragments passing throught the egr system.

The EGR should be at the rear of the engine linked between the exhaust and inlet manifolds.
Usually a large steel tube with load of pipes branching in and out of it.

Exhaust manifold on the 1.6TDCi is at the front and egr should be to the front left.
But i dont know which pipe to block etc.

This is what the valve looks like-

It sits on the end of a cooler unit like this-
