    A3 2.0TDI Sport MPG Poor

    Ive found the part needed to replace the sensor its only cheap so worth a try. Which sensor is the one which controls the dashboard temp reading and which is the other? As my dashboard temp reading seems to be working fine.

    A3 2.0TDI Sport MPG Poor

    Got my abs sensor fixed. MPG still low. 28mpg today and I dread to think what that really is if DIS overreads.

    A3 2.0TDI Sport MPG Poor

    Could be onto something with the brakes....I have a ABS light on the back left wheel which I need to get sorted. When I had my back brakes changed about 2 months ago the wheel with the error shed a lot more brake dust than the other.

    A3 2.0TDI Sport MPG Poor

    Im wanting rid of it tbh. I've had it plugged in and nothing related to MPG showed up. Only a radiator fan error which I doubt would cause such a big MPG loss. After a bit of googling ive heard the MAF sensor could do with cleaning so il try that. Also is the coolant temp sensor easy to...

    RS6 Alloys on 2.0TDI Sport

    About 8-10 mpg it has dropped :( The tyres are Nankang. These im pretty sure Nankang NS-2 225/40 R18 88W Nankang NS-2 225/40 R18 88W - mytyres.co.uk I just cant understand how S Line a3's with the same wheels can achieve higher MPG but put the alloys on a sport and its such a drastic change.
