    Gas springs on saloon boot lid

    Thanks for that. The DIY is really useful. I have managed to take one side panel off and had a look. I'm going to try to move the strut mounting point lower down the hinge to see if it will open the boot automatically without the need for the extra spring.

    I-DTEC MPG

    It looks like someone has pressed your reset button. Because that is the MPG for 2.5 miles. If it was for 140 miles it would have it below the 95.2
