30L/100km never happend to her.usually 23 in the city,14-15L/100km highway.
It's a big drop ,must be winter mixed gas or something.I agree with some idling but
that's scary isn't????
Will check with proscan for some codes.
Skoda ,so you'll getting new engine???
Sherm ,what size sail do you have?that's a great milage.

Sherm,18mpg?wait a minute.
I'am counting in US gallons b/c US trucks are tested with US gallons,
1 US gal = approx. 3.785 litres.
then 15 litres = approx. 3.96 US gal
then 100km = approx. 62 miles
then 62 miles / 3.96 US gal = approx.15.65 mpg
yes that's correct now.some conditions apply:
summer,highway,65-70 mph,2000-2200 rpm's,"drive like a white man ".LOL

Yea its what I'am shooting for, but if any signs point to just the cylinder head being nothing more then a paper weight i'll go with a head swap the bigest problem I have with this root is having to take ti apart to find out if its the cause of my problems. . . enough about this motor... I did some shopping yesterday and no it wasn't clothes.
