its a diesel?????? a bit of smok is ok, esp on startup u will get some, n if u thrash it, shouldn't b that noticeable while idling...

put some diesel injesctor clean thru the tank, cld have dirty injectors or sumpthing....
ive been logging fuel consumption since i bought the car bout 6 months ago, its done 250k and i get between 14l/100km to 16l/100km, depending on whos driving, if roof racks r on, n if its town driving... the woman seems to get better fuel consumption than me... go figure ?!?

99 2.8 gu BTW
