    Very thirsty car...help!

    to clarify from earlier.....is 22mpg sucky (A3 2001 1.8T Sport) for start stop traffic (Ave 20-30mph) to work or am i expecting too much? Parkers says 35mpg (combined)....what is reasonable mpg for 1.8T? cheers

    Very thirsty car...help!

    So if disconnecting the MAF makes the car guzzle fuel (Jampublic), mine already doees that.....what difference would unplugging the maf do to my mpg? if the maf is the problem, would my mpg improve when unplugging it or would i just get a smoother ride? rock on!

    Very thirsty car...help!

    will try unplugging the maf..... to ask a stupid question...do i literally just unplug the electrical connector going into the maf and leave the maf secured in it's housing? Will that throw fault codes everywhere...if so how do i get everything back to normal when i plug it in again? cheers
