    my coupe is getting rediculous with petrol, when i bought it i was getting 300miles with a tank, now 18months later im getting 200.

    iv just taken the de-cat off and think this could be the problem so was wondering if anybody had done it this way i couldn't find any relavant posts here for just a straight foward reset.

    other suggestions welcome.

    engine is d16y8.

    pull 7.5 amp backup fuse from underbonnet fuse box, leave out for a couple of minutes

    replace fuse

    or disconnect battery for a few minutes

    did the oil a month ago and spark plugs yesterday. thought about 02 sensor, will do that after trying the reset if i have no luck.
