    Opel Corsa 1.4i Lite bad acceleration and rough idling

    Hi there everyone. I've had a pretty frustrating problem with my Opel Corsa since 2 weeks ago. Any time I accelerate the car, there is a burbling/stuttering sound coming from the engine and it lacks power, even at pedal-to-the-metal. It almost feels like a cylinder is not firing. Then again...

    Economical driving - should you switch off at stops/robots?

    I am trying to see what kind of mileage I can get out a one tank. After two weeks I finished my first attempt with 603km from one tank, resulting in 7.5l per 100km. This was mostly in rush hour traffic with one 150km weekend trip. What I was wondering about is will you save more if you switch...
