Beware of the readings on the SID! (Saab Information Display) My experience of these in both 9-5 and 9-3SS form is rather on the high side! The Alfa computer seems to be far more on a par with actual brim to brim calculations.
I have averaged 40.3mpg over 9K+ miles since June. With the 1.9jtdm.
This is a mixture of 50% motorway miles and 50% commute across Birmingham. I am chuffed at the running costs.
But as has been stated in many threads before, you don't buy an Alfa soley on running costs!
I much prefer the drive, comfort, looks, and to date, the reliablity over my previous Saab 9-3SS.
When I bought the car and traded the 9-3 in, the dealer said he had a large proportion of his clients moving from Saab to Alfa and vicaversa. Weird.....
Moved over to the dark side
And loving it
