    Hi guys, so this last wile my a4's gotten very hard to run, i put 30 pound in other day,half a tank (dear as feck over here) lol... and i got roughly 230miles and that was running to the very last drop,and not accelerating at all lol!! I used to get 300 :(

    The car pulls fine,idles fine,i disconnected the maf it ran bad,so it must be fine, i checked for vacuum and boost leaks,found nothing,although when i put the foot down,i do hear abit of a hiss,but i think its normal.... i did clean out the egr and inlet manifold awile back,which lead to actualy a little more smoke but surely it wudnt make worse mpg?? I didnt block it btw,always planned to though??

    Any ideas? getting on vagcom on sat too btw

    I think you left something disconected, a tdi should run better not worse after you clean the intake and the hissing sound points to air escaping. Check for split boost pipes as well !
