Diesel e46 EGR query

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I'm new with e46s especially with diesel cars.

So I recently bought 330d 04 (chip tunned). It has EGR deleted/disabled. My question is, should I clean EGR even though it's disabled ? Because I'm not pleased with my consumption. With warm engine, the computer shows from 10-11.5l/100km in the city and I know that e46 could do better, since i drove friends e39 530d (chip tuned) and it wouldn't go above 9 l/100km. Or should I look for a problem elsewhere?

All the oils and filters were changed 100-200km back.

how do you know your car has reached desired temp,?,have you checked via hidden menu?  sounds like your thermostats are goosed,,you could have 2 or 1 stat,,i had a 53 plate and only had 1 stat,,yours could have 2,,egr and main,,also clean your egr yes,,but i doubt thats affecting mpg..ps your car should be going over 90 degrees,,i changed sta on my e46 330d and new stats on my 2 present cars ie e90 330d and 335d,,my e90 went from 36 mpg to 42 mpg,,
