Hi i have a 318i bmw 2001 my fuel consumption is


Last month, my wife complained of high gas usage as well. I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to change the air filter the last time I did the oil change.

hi the sensers work of voltage drop so my first question would be have you replaced any bulbs on your car they may have a different ampere rating which will give the senser a reading thats out of its tolerance setting and the light will come on or have you had any lights fitted same applies or could be a faulty senser yates210456
