Re: Today I have mostly been driving like an oldie
I’ve just got back from holiday in Norfolk – a round trip of over 1200 miles. I took my 12v 164 (more space than the 156) and I was astonished to find that it averaged 32.4mpg! (that’s actual, not some computer generated number!). I drove at an indicated 75mph on motorways but it still surpassed my expectations – I only get 23mpg on “normal” journeys. Oh, and it didn’t miss a beat – another unreliable 18 year old Alfa! It was extremely hot on the way back and the engine temp behaved beautifully – just a pity the AC isn’t operational!
