Hi from N Ireland
Well its wet outside so i cant play with my car and the PS3 is banned so ive decided to join here after reading alot of post over the past few weeks. Today i bought myself a Peugeot 106 Diesel 1500cc 3 door. It should return 55-60 mpg (UK) so thats a good start. With fuel costing around 6.50 per UK gallon i need to save every drop. Im hopeing to improve by around 15-20% or more so will be asking lots of questions.

I look forward to your help.

Thanks Owen

Welcome to EM, Owen:)

The P106, with a 1.5D, is just the car I dream about ecomodding. It's lightweight (compared to new cars) and it can be found without useless options like PS, A/C, electronic everything. Its rear looks like it's just begging for a huge kammback, and a bellypan shouldn't be too hard to make. Those mods should be good for another 10%-20% reduction, on top what you'd get from adjusting driving style.

That is a winner car you have there! You just have to know how to use it. Keep us informed.

That will give you a baseline to work from. Good luck!
