147 for she who must be obeyed??

Ok, should I buy her lady ship a 1.6 ts 147?
What real wold mpg are they getting, she's gonna do lots of miles so would need to be pretty descent.
Anything in particular to check other than usual ? I mean model specific ?

Could end up an all alfa household soon

I got one I'd consider selling if you're interested, 2008 Collezione 1.6 TS, 25k, FSH.

The average MPG is 27.

My missus has had two 147 1.6 TS Lussos to date, and loves them to bits. She reckons to get about 35-40 mpg and does about 250 miles per week, mostly B roads with an occasional A road and she doesn't "drive Miss Daisy" if you know what I mean. Never broken down on her, although serviced regularly, and maintained by me (weekly checks on oil and other fluids, etc). Bloody good little car, if it wasn't the girly 1.6, I'd consider one for myself if I didn't have a 156 JTS already. Go for it, but try make sure its in good nick i.e. no knocks or clunks, well-maintained, the usual stuff.

Member car:

Alfa 166

28 mpg round town
35+ Motorway.

Thats what mine seems to get. Can get lower if I use the red line a lot.

Go for the 2.0L - similar MPG, slightly more expensive running costs but for the extra 25% power it equates to an additional 5% running costs in the real world.
