There is something wrong if your using that much fuel but its basic stuff to check levels including the auto box when its cold, clean filters including fuel etc and see if there are any leaks from Turbo to intercooler and back to the engine etc. Managed 25 mpg towing Old Spice down through France all be it carefully.

Think its creased and stretched the ali panel, full NCB and full comp insurance, but think we pay the first 250 of each claim.

You can't blank it off on the 3.2 like you can on the old 2.8 or 2.5. Buggers up the ECU I'm told.

We have a 3.2 LWB Shogun, it's high speed cornering is diabolicle compared to the X5. What size wheels do you have? We have 16", I'm thinking of going to 18's or even perhaps 20's to stop it rolling so badly.

No it doesn't. Cod's talking shit again. And, a third of a turn on that screw is a lot. Tim, if you find the screw doesn't have a tamper seal on it, I suppose it's possible someone has played around with the adjustment before you got the vehicle. Screwing it out limits the maximum fuel and vise versa. But after the air filter, check the insides of the air hoses to and from the turbo. I've seen them delaminate inside and partially block the air supply.

28

My 320,000 mile manual 300TDI managed 28 last time I worked it out.

Has been worked hard all its life - 200,000 of those miles have been towing!

Mollers Hi.

Compared to an X5 I'm not surprised, I consider them two completly different vehicles built to do two different jobs.

I've never expected it to go round corners very well, but conversly I'd like to see an X5 dig itself and a 2tn boat on a trailer out of being up to all four axles in gravel on the beach.

Seriously, I don't want to enter a debate about whats a proper 4x4 etc, but out of interest does the X5 have low ratio, diff locks etc?

Could you explain a bit better then - politely would be nice............

Why do people bother blanking off the EGR valve??? I thought it was because crap got into the air intake etc as the photo shows.........

As to a 1/3 being a lot some people suggest up to 2 complete turns!!!

The "Crap in the Intake" could be for several reasons...faulty turbo seals, oil from the crankcase breather bypassing/overwhelming the separator... the route of the bled-off exhaust gas, I don't know.... does it get reintroduced at the manifold or before the compressor? I thought at the manifold, in which case it bypasses the cooler...but it's a while since I had a 300Tdi... so someone who has one take a look and let us know...

A look at the (crappy) diagram in the manual suggests that the EGR takes gas from the exhaust side of the turbo and dumps it straight in to the inlet manifold...not through the inter-cooler..

That photo is pretty much what I found when I took the hose off. There was loads of stickly black sludge unside.
