Hi Cyclone. To be honest I've not done much driving in the GTV yet to be able to compare. In fact the only journey I've done was nursing the car home from a very snowy Welsh village. The GTV is a second car for me so it had to be cheap - and hence its a bit of a "project" car (i.e. this one needs a lot of TLC). Once its upto scratch then I'll get it insured and use it properly. How do you find the comparison?
I had three Coupe 20VTs, the last being an LE and the class winner (1990's Fiat) of the 2008 Auto Italia Concours contest. I bought it as a Cat-D writeoff and restored it.
On the subject of oil, I'm still confused.
I thought I'd got it, but I shouldn't doubt the word of the oilman. After all, I've been looking into this subject for about 3 hours and he's prob been doing it for about 30 years.
So thats it then, the w rating is measured on a different scale to the hot rating, thats why it doesn't seem to compare logically.
Unless anyone disagrees if course....
