Fuel Economy
Hi all. This is my first time on the forum, so iím sorry if this topic has been brought up before.

Left it for about an hour and tried again, after a couple of tries managed to start, quickly engaged gear and drove into driveway. Engine management light came on and stayed on while car was operating.

I've read everything I could I think on this issue on these forums and ordered a ...
