Possibly but I just run the tank down then fill up with the new expensive super diesel stuff which drastically cuts down on the smog. There is a MOT test which involves reving the bollicks off a diesel which is why they ask if the cam belt has been done on time. I would rather not be present but Farehams ATS lads are good and don't kick the arse out of it and test a second time if its close. A good run before hand seems to help clear the system out if you have been doing lots of town work.
On a long run I can get 580 miles from a tank full, thats Portsmouth to the top of Loch Lomond before the light comes on. Viv get 400 around town.
Tim when was it last serviced? particularly the air filter and does it smoke on acceleration? Have you dipped the brakes in the salty stuff?
Friend has an aftermarket intercooler and recons it transforms a 300 TDI.
Anyone got a slide hammer for pulling dents out of landrover doors
