I have been getting pants MPG for ages. Im getting about 65miles to a tenner!
My car has been idling too high for a few weeks. It stays at around 1400-1600rpm even after its passed the halfway mark on the temp guage.
My first reaction is the autochoke.
I also almost always get 'running on' when i switch the engine off. This also could point to the fact thats its idling high, causing it to do this.
However, today i noticed a lot of liquid which i presume is neat petrol coming out of the exhaust.
This picture was taken about 10mins after the engine was switched off. At the time the engine was running, there was more.
Am i right in presuming this is petrol?
So is all this high idling/running on problems just the auto choke, or could it be something else?
