Re: Alfa Diesel Fuel Economy!
I get on average 42-46 (500-600 miles/tank) out of my 156 1.9JTDm (140) for approx 50/50 mix of town and motorway with a bit of cross country A roads thrown in. I generally keep it to around 80 units of velocity on the m/way but give it some stick on the A roads. This compares similarly to the 45mpg I got out of an astra 150bhp diesel. To be honest having driven diesels from Ford, VW, the alfa unit in Vauxhalls and Saabs I don't think I've ever driven a diesel that coes close to the official figures.
The best mpg I've ever had was out of an old VW 1.9TDI. Despite being a rough old lump it did give good mpg seemingly no matter how lead footed you were, still wouldn't want to own one!
