Alfa 159 1.8 mpg improvement

My car has passed 20k, another step change has occurred and i now consistently return 29mpg (previously 26mpg), im quite chuffed; i notice the difference, its turned from being something i was well peeed off with with something that is now liveable

Glad you are happier but still not great for that engine

I had the 1.8 for a week, it matches the 2.4 for economy round town, but it loses badly on the motorway doing about 7 mpg less, I would think 29 is as good as it gets for a big lump like the 159 with a petrol engine.
