Re: Run-in period for Alfa 159 1.9 JTS
Some say don't bother, give it everything right from the start. I kept mine under 3,000 rpm for the first 1,000 miles then, for every 100 miles, upped the ante by 500 rpm. 3oo miles after that I gave the car full throttle.
You will notice a difference with distance and use - the car will pull much more cleanly and your fuel consumption will improve.
