1999 166 3.0V6 for sale, and question for JTD owners

It is with regret that I must sell my 166, wonderful car that it is. My commute has increased to 120 miles, and so I really need something a little easier on the wallet for doing that sort of mileage.

If anyone is interested, the car is listed in the classifieds section.

With regard to its replacement, I am open to suggestions at the moment. What are the service intervals/costs and a rough guide to economy on the JTDs? Specifically 156SW, but may consider the 16V 147 if it is a sufficiently different engine.

Many thanks for all opinions,

Sorry to hear that Martin.

156 2.4 JTD SW - I have done 6,700 miles so far and averaged 34mpg. This is driven in the manner befitting a man who has had his foot welded to the floor. I just cannot get it to go any lower!!!
(My 2.0 145 did 23....).

On a motorway trip, it is more like 42-44mpg.

Servicing is every 12000 miles. (There is an indicator built into the computer).

It's a scrummy motor, just check you don't need a big boot.
