Mileage going backwards

Post by stanlmic » Fri Aug 03, 2018 9:59 pm

Here's one -
Took my DS into the dealership for some work to be done, when I arrived and before I handed over the keys over I took a photo of the mileage, when I collected the car the odometer was showing 1 mile less !! How does that happen ??
DS SE Tech 150hp

I’m guessing either N025 and/or N118 were carried. Sometimes this makes the mileage loose a mile!

When driving for short journeys, customers are advised to undertake all journeys in reverse gear to ensure engine oil re-concentration, active reversal of DPF particulate build ups and AdBlue generation.
