Re: Apologies. Fuel economy. Boring!
Fuel consumption not boring at all! I am getting quite anal about it. I do just over 300miles a week in my 2.0TS GTV. I fill it up every second week. Doing it this way i can calculate an exact fuel consumption by keeping a note of my mileage and the amount of fuel used.
I was getting 38 mpg consistantly and 600 miles to a full tank was easily acheivable. This was before i got a full 60,000 mile service done (plugs, belts and tensioners). My consumption has now came down to 34mpg. Dont understand why? The car runs better now than ever.
I dont hang about when i am driving but i am never above 3,500 revs in any gear.
I am sure every one knows how to work out their fuel consumption but to check yours exactly fill the tank full, zero your trip and run the car for e few hundred miles then fill it back up again and check how many litres you have used. (To get litres to gallons just divide by 4.564)
Try this once and you end up getting addicted!
You have been warned!
Happy slow motoring everyone. But you are in an Alfa, it does not matter how slow you go, you have nothing to prove!
