159 2.4 jtdm (210) fuel economy

Hi all,

I know there is plenty of discussions on this subject and I don't want to start a new topic all I want to know is whether 27mpg is normal for stop start driving with this engine. I do go on long runs but they are constantly stopping and starting. And I am going of what the computer is telling me I have calculated the mpg and is was still under 30mpg. Is it normal or is there something faulty causing more fuel to be used.

Thanks I could only find threads with around mid 30's. As long as it's normal then that's fine. Thanks for your help

Sounds normal to me judging by my wifes 2.0 170 jtdm sportwagon. This does approx 40 miles per day in stop start traffic including the M60 (so mainly stop stop driving Lol!) and we are getting 35 -36 ish mpg. I do a the same journey an hour later in a BMW125d with 220BHP right at peak rush hour and that does 46mpg. Alfa have clearly surpassed themselves when it come to efficiency. Despite this we both argue who is taking the Alfa and I always look back at the 159 when walking away ( cant say the same for the BMW. Although its miles faster it just doesn't move me like the Alfa)
