Hi Steve, thanks for replying 😊it is manual and engine size is 1986 cc . I’ve had a conversation with a tuning and remapping garage and from what I am describing they are going to map out the egr valve and hollow out the dpf and do some other things .
does this sound feasible. I have been trying to get my old dpf back without success ! Thanks for all your help
Auto stop/start wont' always work. It's subject to so many parameters that have to be right before it will kick in, the main one being that there has to be enough charge in the battery for it to restart the car.
As above assume you have a petrol version? I have 20" wheels on mine and get 55mpg on a long run (diesel) and low to mid 40s around town.
Your point taken, Gareth.
I guess the truth is that there are not enough customers out there who feel the way I do about the importance of spare wheel. Consequently, manufacturers don't feel the need to do anything about it, especially when to design in a spare wheel compartment would cost more money and lower the performance figures a little. The only way they would do anything about it is if they lost market share because of it, e.g. to Volvo because people were flocking to buy their XC40 Phev. Very unlikely, however.
