159 1.9 JTDM MPG massive improvement...
Hello All, I know there is a lot of threads re the fuel consumption for the 159.
My 08 159jtdm has always had very poor mpg. Typically low 20's to at best high 20's on mixed driving.
But now since an oil change its up to average MPG mid 30's to mid 40s some trips average in high 40's!!!( NEVER saw this before ...same driving ...same trips )..
The improvement came 4 weeks ago immediately after oil change. I went to independent garage. They replaced the filter and oil ( they used valvoline 5w30 FS ) for a very reasonable Ä85 ( I couldnt afford to go back to the AR dealer ...last year they charged Ä187 to do same job!!! ..not actually sure they did change it ...didnt see any improvement that time)
Anyway just wanted to share my experience and unexpected surprise at the improved mpg after oil replacement!!
