Re: Fuel consumption
I had a 120D (163BHP) before I got the Brera. I was easily getting 40+ MPG out of the BM and I have a seriously heavy right foot and I could get 48 if I was careful on a long run.
With the 2.2 Brera I get about 27/28 driving slowly, 60mph on a motorway, at least its better for my licence. If I drove the Brera like I drove the BM I'm sure I would be down to 20/22.
Any Alfa I have owned has been pretty crap when it comes to fuel consumption, the thing is it is getting to be a serious issue with this goverment and the price of fuel.
BMW have definatley got a massive jump on Alfa when it comes to engine BHP v comsumption, Alfa must start making changes or it will cost them sales, green is the new buzz word.
On this forum people keep going on about the weight of the Brera/159, they are not massively heavier than comparitive BMW's.
