Re: New 147 owner with some questions
I have the same model ( 147 Ti ) as you and find if I use BP Ultimate Diesel it makes a BIG difference to my Fuel Economy, recently got 60mpg on a trip to London using cruise control at 75mph a lot of the way. I also had that damn annoying creaking / squeaking noise on the Drivers side too, but took it back to the Dealer, and they found the bolt on the door retainer was loose, and tightened it up and its been O.K. since. I also was a bit worried when I first " booted " it to get some speed into the Car and saw all that black smoke in the rear window ( its my first diesel too ) but have spoken to many people since and they felt the same, so nothing to worry about there either I think..........Roy.....
