so mid range power then! ie no benifit to creeping up to speed gently with little throttle? I'm still abit blonde with regards to the workings of a turbo deisel. presumably when you hoof it (not too much) then your not overfueling it like a petrol then, ie all fuel is used. But do you actually mean 'floor it', as that kind of goes against my thinking.
