Re: 159 2.4Jtd fuel consumption
I have now owned 2 2.4jtds. ona abrand spanker in 2003 10v. and my current steed a 2003 10v with currently 77k on the clock. my current motor performs much much better than the low miler and gives constantly late 40's wheras the earlier car gave early 40's. these engines do so much more when loose. all i do is only use good fuel, i have seen 100 miles less per tank on morrissons evil fuel compared to the shell i usually run her on. and change the oil every 6000. my dad used to have a 10v but now runs a 20v 175. that is a monster! but he also gets late 40's from it. granted we both do motorway/a roads each day for 50 miles , but do not despair, they will get better.
better than my other halfs 330d msport convertable which not only gets eaten alive by the 20v but returns no more than 36mpg. it seems the Alfa engine is a much better unit.
'07 GT Blackline JTD, but a 159TI 2.4 on its way very shortly!
