    Can some of you have a look at the below logs and let me know you thoughts?

    Car smokes on idle and driving. Has Vortex breather and new turbo. average mpg is only 22

    Thermostat is a first.... doesnt get hot on the gauge and INPA doesnt get over 60 at idle and when you rev it actually drops (viscous fan?)

    Sorry poorly explained, yes Ive clocked the thermostat is fubarred, was saying the temps dropping when reving is the fan spinning quicker hence temps dropping. New one ordered.

    anyone any input on smooth running?? It smokes badly on idle and on acceleration so was wondering if injector iffy?

    The reason that the temperature drops when you rev is because your stat has gone, increased revs means more water movement and more flow through the stat which exchanges the warm water in the engine for the cooler water in the radiator. Ordinarily the stat would be firmly shut and this wouldn't happen.

    I did my egr stat recently but ended up having to do the main stat also. As you are running your engine cooler than designed it may well be over fueling as it's cold causing some smoke and bad mpg. What fault codes do you have?

    no other fault codes as such....... Ive in the process of changing the in tank pump and just changed the underside pump after both being faulty and getting low fuel pressure(hoping pumps being changed may show a difference), otherwise no faults.....
