Alfa 147 JTDM fuel consumption
I previously owned a 110JTD engined 147 and normally got between 55-60mpg. Based on this level of excellence, I decided to change for a new 16v version.
I live in France and so most of my day to day driving takes place on 90kph roads on reasonably long journeys and so I was very disappointed that the new car can only manage 41mpg. I have been to local Alfa garage and they say everything is OK.
The car has only done 4000km; will it get better over time? The car is the same weight and I am driving it in a similar manner and so rarely using the engine's additional potential.
Your experience would be most welcome.
