You will hear anywhere between 30 and 45 for the 2.4
Front tyres and sometimes rear as little as 3,000 if the alignment isn't right to between 12 - 30,000 if the alignment is set correctly which is different settings than Alfa recommend.
30mpg = 12,000 mile front tyre life.
45mpg = 30,000 mile front tyre life.
No one answer is correct.
My wife gets 31.5mpg tank after tank after tank. She drives quite fast everywhere and loves the push of the remapped DPF / EGR deleted engine, on current wear rate she will get about 15,000 from the front tyres and they are 18" Michelins at £250 retail.
NOTE: reports suggest that the later car 210bhp standard trim has a different turbo and seems more economical than the early 200bhp car. Power is identified by a sticker on the drivers side door slam panel.
