Am a takeaway food delivery driver so i do put the miles in, am getting 38.1mpg round town, and not much difference on motorway, car has done 22 thousand miles.

 

Do you think my car would benefit from this terraclean.

David 295 have you ever tested out leaving your car running for delivery, perhaps getting a second key cut as long as it's parked in sight. If mpg does significantly improve, perhaps you can ask an auto sparky or find an on the shelf system for what they call run lock.

It's what police have, where u can take the key with you leaving the car running, but it will only stay running if you have the handbrake on and the car is in neutral.

Just a thought.

I don't think you will ever get brilliant mpg as a short journey stop start driver, have you tried a good old 'Italian tuneup' and long trip?

WOW, what a difference terraclean has made I was out doing deliveries last night, and I was getting 56.6, I've never seen my car get that, the most I have ever had is 42.9 on motorway, on a run to Alton Towers.

I'm guttered, I was going to get Terraclean done! I need to get a few pennies in the bank and get it done with the timing belt!

Definitely, as soon as I have the money I will be getting the timing belt changed and terraclean done. I'm getting 51mpg on average in my car and I can only imagine what I would get after a good service and terraclean!

You could always install a computer ;)

 

On the plus side though you can just use your mileage, and tank to work it out, but I recon you will get a good result.

If you want to fit one to a MK2, then you just buy a replacement from a higher spec, and you also need to replace the indicator stalk so it includes the reset button, should be a straight swap, then just get an auto locksmith to code your keys to the new cluster and should be good to go!

 

I would say though, if your going to this effort, do the upgrade and get the MK2.5 cluster, you can get more features from it!
