replacing the particulate filter will help increase your mpg, but 25mpg does still seem very low. :confused:

how much for your particulate filter changing? I got mine done at sunwin motors (peugeot main dealer) in Loughborough for £425.:jedi:

I usually get around 200 miles for £30, so about 35mpg but that is all short jorneys around town and to work and back. I do about 30 miles a day with all the journeys lasting at the most about 6 miles so the fuel consumption would be at it's worst.

Your 25mpg seems very low unless you were doing even smaller journeys than me but I would still expect better than that.

As for the price, that is very good for all that work as Peugeot dealers are franchise and can basically make up their own prices. I was quoted £700 for a particulate filter and fluid change in a Leicester Peugeot dealership.

hope the all the work sorts the problem out for you. Does the particulate filter need changing, is the warning light coming on saying it needs replacing? I've had three 307's that have had the warning light come on and basically you have no choice but to have it replaced (or sell the car) as the car goes into limp mode. What did Peugeot say was the issue with the filter, did they inspect it and say it was beyond refilling or are they just trying to get you to change something that might be working fine.
