In Topic: Induction Kit - Why Is It Affecting My Mpg

20 March 2013 - 09:32 AM

Thanks for the responses guys. As I drive 35,000miles a year I'm starting to reconsider this...

 

Things were a bit better yesterday, I drove to Nottingham and back (300miles) and my tank usually gives me around 300-320 miles to a tank with the way I drive (Mostly motorway and A road driving) and yesterday it read as high as 380miles to a tank (MPG reading never seems to change though?)

 

Also, someone mentioned to me that when the car goes in for an MOT I'll have to put the old one back in or else it will fail, is this true?

 

Cheers

The reason I bought this specific kit was that it has a box that has been created to slot straight in place of the old one without having to bodge anything. The old duct was removed leaving a gap that causes air to flow straight through the grill and in to the new box, so hot air shouldn't be a problem. It's also got a pretty decent heat shield so it remains pretty cold at all times.

 

Any other ideas? or ideas how I could increase it? (Other than driving economically which I do anyway...most of the time ;) )
