My first opinions and Winter mpg
Hi new to alfas just got myself a 2005 147jtdm 150 with 73.000 miles on.
First impressions ok,handles very well,goes well,looks stunning,probs not as quick as the golf that was chipped to 160,I just felt the urge to buy one! last 2 cars I had were golf tdi 130 and v50r 2.0 d.
Right I know consumption drops winter time but what you guys getting mpg wise ?only had it a week all round the doors driving and brim to brim fill up produced 36 mpg I,ll be honest I drive I stole it at the moment coz it's fun and new,normally a steady 65 70 to work and it's all dual carriageway is the norm,boring but save the fun for weekend,
My commutes 60 miles a day so I put in loads of fuel ,last year I did 24000 miles commute and private use.Also one more thing the temp gauge sits about 75 is that about right ?(the golf sat bang on 90 all the time as did the volvo)
