20 yoyo at the prices at the pumps doesnt get you much really... do you use the same station every time could it be bad petrol... 20 wouldnt do much in mine either all i do is tipping about i think shorter trips eat the petrol up

I put €20 in at 132.9 and that gets me 150KMS most of the time thats a mix of town and country driving, When we had the dyno day i was told my car was over fueling and a NEO would and should sort it out . :wink: Martin in Westward Said its a common fault with altezzas over fueling :?
