Now then, i decided on my way home to reset the trip on my info-centre to check the mileage travelled with the odometer, this is because of a different thread i noticed on her the other day!!
he readings are as follows,
Odometer = 11.8miles
info-centre = 7.3miles.
Now if, as the previous thread i read, my infocentre is confusing miles for KILOMETRES, i can convert the 7.3 into miles and come out with 11.68 !!!!! thats close enough for me. I am now of the opinion that my infocentre is jiggered, requiring a new speedo to rectify. I might try an Alfa Dealer to see if they feel a bond with their car and would like to fix it for me.....
My poor economy is solved, it calculates through as being 46.4mpg or there abouts ( i'll keep cheking it at fillups), I've ordered myself a new MAF, which should hopfully arrive on Wednesday and be fitted Thursday meaning i should be able to let you know if it feels better on Friday morning.
Oh well...just the road noise, and creaks and groans from the suspension to sort now, and the cam belt to have replaced in 6k-7k miles
I am beginning to understand the ups and downs of ALFownership.
Thanks guys, for the helpfull coments
