GT diesel owners - what fuel economy are you actually getting?
As a long-standing owner of a 156 with a 2 litre twin-spark engine I'm still debating whether to get my GT with the 1.9 diesel or the 2.0 JTS petrol engine (the 3.2 is out of the equation on my budget!). I've driven both, and although I enjoy the drive and pull of the diesel the noise at idle is still putting me off getting one.
Obviously the main reason I'd consider a diesel is for the fuel economy. Can any diesel owners give me their views on what mpg they actually get from their GTs please, and how they drive (eg aggressive, motorway etc) to achieve those figures. If your experiences are that you get less than 40mpg with normal driving, then I think I'll probably opt for the petrol instead.
Thanks for your views.
