HOW CAN I GET BETTER ECONOMY FROM MY TURBO DIESEL VEHICLE?
It is probably one of the most commonly asked questions second to HOW CAN I GET MORE POWERRRR!!!!????
One of the main causes of both poor power and poor economy is a blocked or restricted air filter. If your engine (petrol or diesel) can't breathe it can't perform as it was designed and will also have poor fuel economy and will blow excessive BLACK SMOKE.
On most vehicles doing a quick check of the air filter between services is quite straight forward and simple to do, and sure if you have a regularly serviced vehicle it may not be necessary but when doing trips out in the dusty west or on the sandy beach it is vital to check your filter regularly.
Most vehicles fitted with a snorkel will also tend to ingest a greater volume of contaminant meaning a reduced air filter service life.
Something to keep in mind and potentially save yourself a few bucks!
