Try using stanadyne as a fuel additive, itís the only thing I would ever add to a sprinter tank. In the states, we have bad diesel so it boosts me up to 26mpg which I think is around 11- 11.5 kpl

Do you have a lot of sway while driving with the add ons? I would looking into sumo springs to maybe help with a smoother straight ride so wind doesnít knock you around.

I already use a splash of Chem tech "Diesel Power" Never heard of Stanadyne but never looked for it either
Cant complain about the handling. It has the ambo springs. Any van I have ever had gets blown around a bit in heavy wind.

Well, if all sprinters are generally the same and itís not add-ons/ weight... I would start running diagnostics on oil levels and pressures, air ratios and pressures, fuel ratios and pressures.

The only problem is that those items wonít always throw a code. For example; in my 08 sprinter- if I have too much oil, the engine will change the air to fuel ratio without throwing a code- this would affect my economy and will mess my motor up eventually.

Iíll try and ask my mechanic next week and Iíll keep you posted if he mentions anything.

I finally had time to search for this in daylight hours but could not find temp probe. I did find the espar was running though. Would that add any substantial amount to the fuel usage?

I seem to recall reading somewhere that they use 1 gallon per day.
