147 JTD 16V average fuel consumption
Just a quick survey to all who own a JTD 16V 140bhp,
Had my car now for 2 months and covered 3000 miles, I'm getting about 42mpg average mostly motorway driving, I generaly stick to the speed limit, but hey it's an Alfa and you need to have some fun sometimes.
Is this figure typical or should it be better (Alfa's blurb say it should be around 47mpg).
I also had the oportunity of driving a Volkswagen Golf TDI 130BHP and I must say it was very supprised on how good it was (not that I want one).
It seemed to have more torque lower down and felt a bit quicker than my Alfa, It also average 55mpg. My Alfa was quieter both outside and inside and looked much much better.
