    Just to tag a few people who I have seen ask about the EGR valve on the facelift CDTi engines.

    Gents, I hope this can help you a bit even though my car is not an FR-V

    My family have a thing about thumbs recently. My eldest got his squashed in a door a week ago and my youngest got his squashed playing with his scooter and pretending to change the wheel on it. :Laughing:

    Well EGR clean now done, thank you @Nighthawk for taking the time to document it. It was a ball ache of a job on the FR-V due to lack of room between the rads and the front of the engine, but the guide helped a lot. Cheers :Thumbup:
    Car seems to be a little more responsive and sounds a bit smoother too.

    Took the car on it's first long drive since doing the EGR clean, average MPG on same trip done last month has improved by 5-6 MPG traveling at 70. Averaged 46 MPG, rose to 46.8 doing 50-60 on the lanes and went done and settled around 46.2 at 70-75 on the M-way.
    So well worth the effort, this has given me approx an extra 50 miles per full tank extra.

    I think my 2.0litre Petrol Edix is costing about £8/100 miles around town on LPG. Let's round that upto £10/100 miles to account for some petrol usage on startup.

    Let's say Diesel is costing £1.07, so for £10 it would use 2.054 gallons. So for the cost equivalent comparison I'm doing 48.7MPG around town in a my 2 litre petrol.

    On the motorway it would better this :mosh::smoke:

    Around town, the little EP2 is getting around 37-38mpg, the Accord at the same speeds is getting around 10mpg higher on the same roads. Not really a huge difference that would be enough for me to stick to a diesel for town driving. On a steady long drive, the Accord wipes the floor with economy of the little Civic and often hits mid 50s. Even that is not that high above the LPG figures. I actually prefer driving the Civic around town, not sure if thats more because I love chucking it around roundabouts (probably is actually... :blush:)

    I have a question. Whether you understand me is a different matter. So I've recently had my FR-V 2006 2.2CDTI mapped by Celtic tuning. The map also deleted out the EGR. Today I received the blanking plate to physically do the job. From looking at this fantastic guide I can see there's a gasket, now I'm assuming this is where I would place the blanking plate? if so I can't see how the EGR will go back flush as the original gasket is bigger than the blanking plate? - you get me! :Smile:

    Here's a pic of the blanking plate.

    The blanking plate is only thin steel, there is enough thread on the two bolts to allow it to fit.
