Back to an Alfa! Trip computer
Well after a short 12 month break away from Alfa's I couldn't stay away so the old man Saab was sold, and a 20v 2.4JTD 156 Voloce was was put in it's place. So after receiving the car on Wednesday night, we decided to take a little trip to Edinburgh from Runcorn to stretch it's legs and see what it was like on a run. This was conducted flawlessly, however having had the 1.9TID 9-3 Saab I was a bit used to getting about 65mpg on a run. So when we returned last night, I checked the trip computer on my new car thinking that the fuel consumption should be around 50-55mpg after driving at 70mph on a 500 mile round trip. To my horror the display showed 31.9mph but on the trip I'd only covered 280miles. However the odometer showed that I'd covered 500 miles. Is there a common problem with the trip computer as where it may need re-calibrating? If so where would I get this done?
