    slow going

    Hi we have a 1990 hitop Citroen C15D Romahome and I was surprised at how slow it goes. Flat out on a level surface I’m lucky to get 60 MPH. This is ok as I’m not in any hurry but it really struggles on the slightest of hills getting as low as 25mph! Do you think something is wrong or do I need to just get used to it? Nic

    Dont think it should be that slow,mine was quite nippy and would clock 80 easily.

      I agree with Ian

      You should get someone to look at the fuel injection system

        This is likely to be the fuel filter clogged, buy a new one and put some injecter cleaner in the tank.

        If you do put a new filter in make sure you install it correctly.

          Hi Nic.
          A 1990 C15 doesn't have a very complicated fuel system, if you've not had a fuel filter for ages that might be the problem, equally if you've had a recent filter change has it been fitted correctly? If it draws air the performance will be reduced. That all said I doubt its either of those, by far the most common cause is the throttle cable poorly adjusted. If you get someone to put their foot on the throttle so it is right down on the floor, then look at the fuel pump where the throttle cable comes up to it, you'll see a spring clip that holds the outer cable. Pull the clip off and adjust the outer cable until the arm on the fuel pump gets full throttle, refit the clip and try not to get caught speeding!

            Udate - now goes like Rocker

            Adjusted the throttle cable as suggested by Ant and can now cruse along at 70/80. One very happy camper Thanks Guys

                Nice one Ant! Isn't it amazing how the silly little things get overlooked?
                I must say, that solution was not the first thing that occured to me!

                  Did this adjustment on the Duo & what a difference! Motorway travelling to country lanes in Cornwall are now much easier, thanks Ant
