159 1.8mpi Economy/MPG
This is my first post - had a search around but couldnt find anything else exactly the same as this thread. Apologies if this should be elsewhere!
Anyway, just picked up 2008 159 1.8mpi Special edition, gorgeous car, balck with chrome extra bits, 18" wheels, tan leather, bluetooth etc, not a scratch on it and done 16k miles.
So im over the moon with the car.
Ive tried driving the car like i used to drive my previous z4, economy is rubbish - z4 gave 32av mpg even when hammered - alfa gives 25 if not lower when driven hard
Ive tried driving like a granny - and the most i have got so far is 26.7. Put £30 in at 112.9 and i got 152 miles - this is a non rush hour journey with average speed of 50mph - not good if you ask me!
Can spark plugs, oil levels make a difference to this figure?
Its booked in on friday for something else (not an important or big thing) -wondered if i should mention this to them?
What are everyone elses experiences with the 1.8mpi and economy? The official stats are way above this, but i know you never get what they say, but 85/90% is generally a good average on the official stats
