How many weekends we waited for to know fuel economy improvement with new thermostat?
I got +5% mpg in the Seat Leon. And almost +9% in winter when temperatures went from 0 to 10C when using climate heat.

I've done 2.75 tanks since fitted (in the fuel log for the car..), I think..

no mpg improvement on first one

back to usual area on 2nd

and the Radiator burst 1/2 way through the current one.

my temper is rising, although my mpg may not be..
