Had problems with appalling fuel consumption since i bought the car (no matter where i go or how i drive it always averages 15.6 or so mpg
) £20 gets me no more than 50 miles its that bad, so im going to look into it, going to clean the MAF sensor but noticed it has an a Torx screw but not sure which bit i need can anyone help??

Running DS now on Performance still no better MPG

Im not to bothered about the mpg or i wouldn't of bought a 2.5 T weighing a ton and a half just if something is wrong i'd prefer it be right


Thanks peeps

Theres a clip and 2 5 sided Torx screws on the induction pipe after the air filter up from the ECU housing, you just need a special cleaner though so i believe 'll search for it now..

You may find 'tamper proof' within a good comprehensive socket set as well.

HTH
Very rare to find 5-point tamper proof in a socket set as they're pretty specialised. But that set you linked to does the job nice and cheeply, probably costs less than 1 of the several Snap-on bits I managed to blag
Given most of them away now tho.

If you get the Torx bit then once the 2 screws are out the MAF can be a bit snug in the housing as it's got an o-ring on it, bit of moving side to side usually frees it off and you're sorted
