Any Mileage probs?

Has anyone had any issues with the mileage reading?
I bought my car in Jan replacing my 156 and I normally only ever ran around 12K per year? I bought the car in the north of england - live in Midlands - we visited Devon in the 'summer' and I share drives to work in the Alfa with the wifes Fiat. However I have already done 11.5K when I'm sure I have not covered as much distance? Maybe its me but is there any known probs with the mileage counter/measure?

Re: Any Mileage probs?

Nt heard of anything like this I'm afraid. One thing though - it is possible to change the units of measurement from Miles to KMs and vice versa quite easily through the main menu - try toggling the settings! NB You can only access this menu whilst stationary.

The speedo and mileometer in my 156 used to overread wildly at speed (+10%, which flattered the MPG somewhat...)
My 159 is pretty much spot on, according to radar speed traps and the satnav.
