Paddyt - mine is on a near identical 7770 - but I picked it up second hand with 4000 miles on it.

As posted before I'm getting between 39 and 42mpg as measured at the pump. But I do mainly motorway miles - I'm not the fastest on the motorway but I am not particularly slow so you must be really hammering yours. On the same run my old 2.0TDI Mk5 Golf used to give me just above 50mpg. Although in fairness to the Alfa my wife's Mazda5 2.0 diesel only gives about 42mpg so the Alfa's not doing too bad w.r.t. ecomomy in my eyes.

I like the car and the 2.0 diesel is really quite an interesting drive for an oil burner and even makes a relatively pleasant sound when rev'ed to the red line.

Definitely a bit more pull than the 1.9JTDM I had for a 100 mile test drive before picking up the current car. It feels nicely balanced in the corners and not too front heavy.

My wife has the Alfa unaccompanied for the first time today and normally when I lend her my car she reverses into something - it's happened twice before - so I am awaiting the telephone call.

How many of you 2.0 jtd drivers have automatic transmissions?
Guess consumpsion would be a lot more with an automatic?
Would also be interesting to have one driver with good mpg, drive the same distance at the same speed as a driver with a car that has low mpg. Just to figuere out why?
