Simple question

How much of a mpg improvement did you get from cleaning your egr plate?

Wanna do the job but also wanna know what to expect so I don't get my hopes up...

I'm currently averaging 50mpg ...

But I also need to replace the evap vent solenoid..... dammed you salt ...

Your location?

I cleaned my EGR shortly after I bought my ‘00. It didn’t like going into lean burn when I got it, but moved smoothly in and out of LB after I cleaned it.

How much gas you’ll save will depend on your driving speeds and engine load levels. But I’d do the cleaning. Would you drive on old spark plugs or with a brake dragging? Naahhhhh.
