At 114,000 milesmy old 2.5 174 is loosening up nicely and the fuel consumption has been getting better and better.  On a recent 300 mile journey mostly motorway but some top start town driving I was amazed to see the average fuel consumption shown on dash peaking at-


When I checked it full tank to full tank it actually worked out at a genuine 36.89 which I'm well impressed with.  Plus it still goes like a rocket, starts in a nanno second cold or hot and tows hard without a murmur.  I still have the coolant sensor to change and since that needs the front off I will change the intercooler too since it's slightly damp in one corner.

Still on the original springs/rear shocks/alternator/radiator/ABS pump.  Not bad for A 15 year old van!  Thumbs Up
