Hi You remember a while ago I posted with an issue of very low mpg and flat power in my 2.0 TDI Sport (BKD) I was getting at best 38mpg average on the long term trip and on a long run with lots of downhills maybe pushing it to 48mpg on the short term trip. Mostly getting around 39-41 mpg. I tried pretty much everything I could to resolve the issue including a full service (all filters), a good old thrashing down the motorway and a Terraclean. Nothing worked. Anyway, someone advised me to check the timing and in particular the 'torsion' value using VCDS. I didn't have VCDS so I decided to wing it and adjust it and see what happened. Long story short it improved but I didn't know what the reading was exactly, so I borrowed a windows laptop (Mac only household), got a cheap cable off ebay and downloaded VCDS lite. My adjustment had advanced the timing quite a lot and was reading 4.3 in the 'idle stabilisation' measuring block (the last box in block 4) in VCDS. I was told that this should read 0.0. So I retarded the front pulley until it reached 0.0. I then adjusted the rear cam pulley until the fuel consumption (in block 15) had a reading of 0.40 l/h . After reading on the net it seemed that this was a good reading to have and would time the two cams together. Anyway... Since I did this around 3 weeks ago my car is now averaging 47mpg on the long term trip and the best I have managed on a long journey is 64mpg. Also, the car absolutely fly's now So if like me you have a car that you know should be getting better mpg, maybe look at your timing adjustment... If anyone wants to know a bit more detail on how I did this, just ask.
