My 159 09 1.9 JTDm on 19s P Zero's has just reached 700 miles and im on 32mpg on clock and 33.8 on manual calculation.
I have to laugh because the guys at work can't believe im getting worse mpg figures than the boss in his Touareg 3 litre german monster.
The reason I jest - is because im the one that has the last laugh!
Everytime im driving the 159 I have a big grin on my face and whenever im not driving it, I cant wait to get back in it!
To spice things up - im also getting it remapped at Red Dot on the 30th May! That will put an even bigger smile on my face!
So to the guys at work; "You can laugh all you like - but im the one who is smiling!!!!"
Lets be honest guys! No one here bought an Alfa for its MPG figures!!!!! As far as storage space goes - buy a box and put it in the boot! (yes you will have to get out of the car to access your oddments - but thats a bonus, as you will get to see your Alfa from the outside
In reference to cup holders
Why are you even drinking in your Alfa in the first place??? (reminder that it has been ilegal to drink and eat whilst driving for some time now
Navigator - I am really sorry to hear that your not happier with your Alfa vs. the Swedish mobile (XC90), but hopefully it will grow on you as much as its grown on me.... (and by the way, I am the first to admit that the Alfa is not perfect! - but its damn well close)
