Re: Ad blu

A further thought. You don't say how old the car is. There was a recall to change the Adblue tank cap (don't really know why). Someone on another forum had an issue and took it to Citroen. They changed the cap and, as far as I recall, it solved the problem. If this hasn't been done or if the car has...

Re: Dipped Headlights Too Short

Hi folks I understand the theory behind dipped headlights that work in both LHD and RHD countries ..... but I find the Mk 1 Cactus dipped beam to be short at anything over about 45/50 MPH ( I can't see far enough ahead of me ) Has anybody had theirs adjusted up a bit? They are plenty bright enough,...

Re: Diesel auto mpg

I've just bought a cactus diesel (although it is a manual) and am finding mpg to be high 50s over mixed driving, even with me trying really hard to be economical. Tyre pressures are optimal I shift up as soon as possible and scarcely exceed 60mph. I bought it with 85k on the clock, so wondered if t...

Re: Diesel auto mpg

It's an ETG Shouldn't be a fuel penalty then. In my experience, the computer results are inconsistent. On one trip I did I recorded computer mileage against a fill-up calculation. One one occasion, when the computer said that the two tanks had given the same mpg, the fill-ups were at least 4mpg dif...

Re: Tall driver

Bear in mind some have a sunroof which will reduce headroom.

Re: Diesel auto mpg

Just thought. Is the car auto or ETG?

Re: Diesel auto mpg

Hi all, who's got a diesel automatic? I'm getting 55mpg around town and just managing 60mpg on my 20 mile commute. Im driving really carefully so was expecting more. Thoughts please. Our two diesel C3s could only manage low 60s and our C4 Picasso does low 50s. All are (were) manuals. Although auto ...

Re: Stalk button???

After I posted to say that the button does nothing, I decided to try it on our 2019 C3. With the phone working on Android Auto, pressing the left button activates the Google voice control. Not sure that it is necessary, as frequently the voice control activates by just saying 'Hey google'. Doesn't a...

Re: Stalk button???

No idea what the function is of the left hand stalk button. I know the right hand one changes the trip meter but cannot seem to make the other one do anything!!! I don't have SATNAV fitted. This question has been asked regularly since I first had a C4 Picasso in 2007. The usual reply was that it wa...
