Thanks for very helpful suggestions. I think the diesel particulate filter is indeed at the root of the problem but what I don't understand is why the 2 main dealers I have spoken to (in Mansfield and Derby) didn't suggest this when I spoke to them.
I am also a little concerned that the reading I finally get when the inboard computer collapses is 6.9 mpg. If this reading is correct during the 10 mins or more it takes for the DPF to regenerate I could be using 1 or even 1.5 galls of fuel (5 - 10 ltrs) and might run out of fuel before I can get to a petrol station if the the tank is already low when the 'regeneration' starts. Any comments?
