I had put it down to engine tightness and have religiously observed running in recommendations, but now being well past 600 miles it still hesitates and requires total concentration and delicate clutch control to stop wife complaining about whiplash! I'm also disappointed with a current average mpg of 37 when nearly all of the 900 miles have been long journeys. The car is due to go back to the dealer for mud flaps and door protector fitting next week, should I question the MAP fit and whether an update is due? Any thoughts?
 
 
If you have a moment I would love to see what your motor (1.0 tgdi) looks like with the cover on and off.. we don't get this motor in the states and I would love to take a look at it.. as for your mileage.. I suspect a lot of it has to do with a new tight motor.. could you give the kia rates specs for hp and tork. I have a feeing the us Rio might be getting this with the update..

hi bigbruiseral the 42 mpg that you have quoted is that with the standard air filter or a aftermarket one

Sounds good, the sensor has made a difference. On the meet and another journey 2 days later I did around 260 miles, a lot of this was 80mph and averaging 38mpg. In the 9 days since short journeys only and mpg is still around 35.

Not sure 12 miles is really enough to judge the mpg increase.

I've been logging my mpg using Fuelio, since fitting the sensor I've had an average 1mpg increase, over 3 tanks / about 1000 miles, doing roughly the same journey to and from work

This calculated on fuel quantity and miles covered, rather than the estimate on the dashboard, which as it happens, seems to be even more inaccurate than before the sensor was fitted
