#342962 2009 1.8Tdci - Intermittant Stuttering

Posted by johnson293 on 14 March 2014 - 11:03 PM

I'm guilty of that too.....:$


Me too - I have tended to refuel when the light comes on (50 miles left), and letting it run quite a way below that is what triggered my problems before christmas.


However, mine is now running fine again now with a new filter, and if possible, I'm gonna refuel before the light comes on, as long as its not costing me more to run by doing it.


Currently costs me about £35/week average on fuel, with the monthly mileage I do.

Well, will be close to refuelling tomorrow and the car looks like its now averaging approx 47-48mpg (both on the trip computer and mathematically) for my weekly commute mileage, which is getting nearer to what I'd hoped for (50mpg) when I bought the car.


Changed the air filter on Friday of last week (just a standard filter from EuroCarParts), and will be fuelling with shell again this week, so see how it goes for a full week with a new air filter, but the small changes are making a difference for me.


Will also check the tyre pressures, and make sure they are kept right, too.


Cheers again for everyones advice.
