Dont have a clue what the engine is except yes it is a 1.6 sohc (chain drive). But normaly people refer to them as "Bullet Proof". I hope its nothing mechanical so will persue the service options for now as thats the cheapest rout. However if I get a chance next week I will take the rocker cover off and check for wear.
Since my last post I have found a supplier of BG44k in the UK Power Enhancer > Home They have an ebay shop so have ordered a can to try. (£23.49 inc delivery) so its not as cheap as Redex or STP but the reviews just seem so good for the 44k.
So far I have replaced the air filter and HT leads which has made a marked improvement to fuel consumption (now 52miles £10 from 45miles). I tried 97RON petrol today which seems to have cured most of the hessitation when driving steady but its still there and still a bit lumpy when it idles. I think this points to the oxygen sensor not adjusting to the 95RON fuel, but the 44k claims to clean this so will hold off untill the 44k turns up.
