TLC Day :)

Today my GP (1.9 MJET Sporting) has had the quarter light replaced after being broken into. Quarter light glass cost me 25, mate who works at stagecoach had fitted it.

While I was there he said, oh I've got this Induction kit you can have, so I now have a K&N induction kit fitted for free. Sorted out my Fuel temperature sensor....
All in all my average MPG has raised from about 38 to about 50!

Not sure if this is down to the new kit or the sensor being sorted!

Such a good day!

Re: TLC Day :)

No but I'm guessing it's something I should replace?
Can put it on the to do list!
If so can you explain why?

Re: TLC Day :)

In all honesty I'm not massively knowledgeable. I trusted him as he's quite the car maniac, owned multiple fiats, is a mechanic for stagecoach....

Re: TLC Day :)

You don't have to replace anything.

The huge difference in MPG is from the fuel temp sensor of course.

Got a pic ?

I know it needs a wash, I've been waiting to spend some time with it, without being worried about flooding the inside!

Re: TLC Day :)

The tape is there just to secure it while I was driving, it was left for an hour to cure but I had to leave.

Re: TLC Day :)

I'd love to have coloured pipes inside, do you need to replace with colours or do people paint?

Search a kit with silicone hoses for your engine.

The Induction kit was originally fitted to an Alfa Romeo 155!
