My Jetta mileage is down about 10% over the same time last year, so I
guess it's time to turn the fuelling back down... I noticed that my wife tends
to drive with the pedal mashed most of the time.
At first I thought it was dragging brakes, but I fixed that (one of the parking
brake levers had seized), and it's still only about 47 mpg imp on the last 4
tanks. I was getting about 53 last year. Nozzles were changed 6 months
ago. Hmmm... now that I think about it, it probably needs an air filter... I
hope that's it.
