I am not sure then mate, I could get 25mpg from my Fiat Coupe on the same trip.
The car seems to run ok, and I don't drive too hard.
Its had a new stat, and a recent MAF as well.
Sy, at the end of the day, its a V6 3.0 which was never known for its fuel economy, so, while the 20VT was probably faster, it still had a smaller displacement and simply better economy. i wont berate the V6 for its relatively poor economy, but i would just say that the 20VT was, frankly, a surprisingly economical fast car.
let's face it, if petrol prices were somewhat cheaper, then this wouldnt b so much of an issue.
however, it must be said that prices here are cheaper than in either France or Germany currently.
i was forced to commute in the Spider for a year, but it was all long distance, motorway stuff and it was only a few times a week at most. yes it was expensive. but why not?
i reckon you'll either need to sell it, or, simply get a small, economical and cheap-to-buy runabout and enjoy the GTV for when you really want to enjoy it.
That's kind of what im doing at the mo.....but that could change too!
