Re: GTV 2.0TS bad MPG
The spider / GTV is very sensitive to city driving - read appalling mpg. I get the same as you from my spider, 18 - 20 mpg, but it is all urban driving.
I have had it checked from top to bottom by my Alfa specialist, who is absolutely top drawer... nothing wrong with her, the car is perfect in every way. Just dreadful city mpg, not much you can do about it.
Try measuring the mpg on a good country run, and you should see it jump up.
It's just the price you have to pay..... I've given up measuring the mpg from mine...!
'76 Spider -> '93 164 -> '99 146 Junior -> '97 GTV -> '99 Spider....
