Temp and oil consumption.
So far as I can figure I need a new thermostat. Temp while driving is rarely above 70 and only hits 90 when in traffic and idling for a while.
I also have an oil consumption problem. About 2 litres in 500 miles. I don't have any noticeable smoke and there are no leaks (I've been looking around for them and have had several nights of parking in the same spot wondering if I'd see any spots and there's none.)
I've taken off the breather hose and it's clean. I looked at the other one (which feeds the vapour separator?) and it had a very slight milky deposit.
As I understand it the inlet manifold gasket can be a source here but as I say - no sign of leak, no smoke, no smells.
Any ideas on next move?

Me: "Yep and I love it"
GFD: "Alfa though.... Aren't they supposed to be unreliable"
Me (looking over her shoulder at her Punto and laughing inwardly): "So they say......"
