    Overfuelling A3 perhaps?

    I've been demoted to driving the A3 to work this week due to mine being in the bodyshop....

    I'm noticing its smelling of fuel after each run, the DIS mileage varies a lot when you put your foot down (40-50 miles difference) ...is it possible its overfuelling with all the mods attached? we are going to get the remap done soon but would rather get any issues sorted before i go down to R-tech......

    in summary mods are

    Miltek 2.5" DP and sports CAT (which is currently showing an engine fault for the high flow - Lamba)
    Deleted middle box
    4" CAI
    N249 removal
    smoothed air box
    catch can (PCV deleted)
    007p
    blanked off SAI
    FMIC

    any help would be appreciated chaps

    Have you checked incase the fuel filter housing hasn't got a crack in it maybe, i'd expect to see your car running leaner rather than rich with the mods you have, not 100% sure though lol

    i did notice today a flat spot just before the boost kicked in....that might be a sign...this is honestly beyond me haha, um the fuel filter is newly fitted but i will check when its dry next, if it had a split would it not leave a puddle when stood still?
