Not sure if you could fit an extra glowplug at the intake manifold to act in a way similar to the grid heater fitted to some trucks with the Cummins B-series engine instead of having to rely on an external power outlet.

I am not quite sure heating the intake air would be beneficial.

The turbo heats it up a bit. And if i remember the intake heaters were recommended for -9 or 9 deg c or below.

Averaging 5.9 l/100 km on my way to work early in the morning. (6am departure)

On rushour return trips it is 6.9 or above 7. I could get the return trip to lower figures if I leave at 10 pm. But I kinda want to spend some time with my kid aswell.

Down to 5.5 on the commute to work. Not quite sure if it was me paying more attention, because I could leave a few minutes earlier or some other factor.

That is 42 mpg US.

Today I dropped off the wife and then went to work.
When I arrived the car indicated 5.1 l/100km (46.12 mpg US).

Sub 4 liters would make me very happy.

Dayng, on the way back, there was very significant traffic. I struggled to get the consumption below 7l/100km.

Now I am regretting slightly not getting one of the models with start-stop.


We shall see how a lithium ion pack and capacitors change that. Also the warmup time is significant.
