33 fuel consumption

Hi LAds,

This may have been discussed before but I'm interested to know your findings on fuel consumption. I have a 1994 33 1.4 which is fuel injected and was wondering if there is any official fuel consumption figures or if any of you have measured it yourself? I would be interested to know because my 155 is my daily driver, 33 rarely gets used but am considering using the 33 as the daily driver instead.
My mate has a 1981 Sprint Super 1.5 and a 1984 GTV6 and reckons the sprint is harder on fuel, i mentioned maybe becuse its on carbs but he maintains its the boxer engine configuration. Any thoughts on this?

My Sprint on average cruizing has 10ltr/100klm consumption , 12ltr/100klm on fast driving and 15ltr when redlining all the time and reaching top speed on highway. Of course the carbs were not serviced or balanced so they might added to the consumption. As for 33 you can estimate about 9 ltr /100klm average...

My '94 1.5IE consumes from 7.2 to 8.8 liters / 100 km [39.2 to 32.1 MPG]

7.2 was measured at full highway use with speeds between 130-140 km/h [80 - 87 MPH]
8.8 is the worst urban cycle consumption.

My 1.3 carbed series 3 was very good on fuel on long steady motorway journeys. Sit at about 90 and it would do 39mpg. However it drank petrol on short trips around town (about 20mpg)

The P4 did about 28 in general use. A touch more on long journeys.

All the best
