HDI 1.6 110 Engine - High Mileage?

I remember reading this before I bought my first 1.6 HDi which was a Xara Picasso, I ran that to about 150,000 miles and sold it to a friend who is still using it. Next I bought a C4 Picasso with the same engine, 1.6 HDi but this one has a DPF which the Xsara did not. Anyway I'm currently at 452,000 miles.

The miles I do include an awful lot of long distances, and despite everyone telling me I'm mad for doing so I change the oil every 6 or 7000 miles, often I do the oil changes myself. I did have the EGR deleted and the DPF removed a few years ago.

Never had to change the turbo, but had to get it stripped and cleaned up twice now, not hard.

There is no secret to these engines except strict maintenance, never skip oil changes, never skip fuel filter changes, use quality oil and parts.

Valueless, yes it is. I tried to sell it when it was 200,000 miles and mint condition with new tyres and looking and driving like new and the most I was offered was 1500 quid so I decided to keep it. I drive across France, Spain and Portugal frequently... never let me down yet.

I've had a Focus with 140,000+ miles on it where the only thing I've had to do was a crank sensor and an injector seal, both cost a few pounds at most to remedy. Our Berlingo is currently on 140K again and has been absolutely trouble free apart from the odd self inflicted problem.

We have a 2015 1.6 Dispatch as well that is on 120K and although it runs fine it sounds a lot more stressed as if its about to go pop any moment, revs higher that the Berlingo as well in any given gear.

Strangely enough I reckon accidentally putting £15 worth of petrol in the Berlingo last year did it the world of good as its run sweet as a nut ever since. Bizarrely enough someone put £6 of petrol in our Dispatch yesterday before they realised, we will see what happens.

It'll just be lower geared to make up for the extra weight it has to haul compared to the Berlingo or Focus.

Thats what I guessed, does about 3500 revs at 80, could definately do with another gear. Crap on fuel as well at that speed, lucky to get 30mpg.

My son drives a C3 with the 90 bhp 1.6 hdi engine , it has done over 300,000 miles, never had a turbo & only 1 clutch, about 3 cambelts.
It doesn’t use any oil and still does 60mpg most of the time.
5th gear has broken now for the second time.
