  1. Consumption

    Alfa Stelvio
    A few of you out there must have been running around in your new Stelvios for a few weeks now, so can anyone give me an idea of the real world mpg they are getting from their PETROL versions? It's quite a big car, albeit a good weight for its size, so I can't imagine it's that great.
  2. Improve consumption 159 2.4 jtdm Q-tronic

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I know this is a bit of a how long is a piece of string question but here goes. I want to map the egr out and get a slight performance increase not a lot just a little “crisper”. Anyone offer any advice on costs and what improvement in mpg I might get. Currently getting a 32mpg reported and...

  4. Low low-end torque, high consumption, JTD

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    All of these issues started a year or so ago, when bottom turbo hose split and the car drove for maybe 300-400 km with a split hose. That's when the MPG started to fall through the floor. After that I replaced the hose with a steel pipe, and the power was restored but the consumption never...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm having high fuel consumption issue with my GT. It's about 11 l / 100 km average. As I've understood it should be like 9, isn't that so ? Anyways what should I do with it , replace lambdas , spark plugs air filter ? Has anybody else had this issue ? If so what did you do ?Thanks in advance .
  6. high consumption on mito 155

    Alfa MiTo
    hello everyone. I own a mito 155 and im a bit worried about my fuel consumption. Its from the UK so i bet the mpg is in UK miles and it says 24mpg or 11.7L/100km. To be fair i just bought it and ive been driving pretty heavy-footed(A lot) espcially after i got my K&N filter(Love the sound, it...
  7. Fuel Consumption - getting better

    Alfa Giulia
    OK, I'll be the first to admit you shouldnt buy an Alfa Romeo if you are worried about fuel consumption, but it is nice when you can 'enjoy':biglaugh: the car without emptying the tank to quickly. In the Brera a full tank of 70 odd ltrs would just about do 400miles, 430 on a long drive. I'm...
  8. Consumption JTD 16V

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have been having trouble with my fuel consumption since I own the car. It's 147 16V JTD late 2006. A friend of mine now owns the same model, and has a lot better economy then I do. He can make it to 900km's on a single tank, driving normally. With very carefull driving I can make it...
  9. 166 2.0 V6 TB fuel consumption

    Alfa 164 & 166
    In case anyone's interested, I've just done a 3,633km trip from Sofia, Bulgaria to Berlin, Germany and back, via Budapest, Krakow, Bratislava and Belgrade - around 80% motorway at 140-160kph cruising speed but with lots of slowing down and speeding up, plus some single-lane highways and in-town...
  10. 147 1.9 JTD 81kW, too high consumption?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The car has 1500 kilometers since last reset, and the display shows 7.8 l/100 (36 mpg) consumption. Which is weird, because 200 kilometers ago it said 7.4l (38 mpg). In the last 200 kilometers, my consumption would have to be pretty high to average out the whole 1500 kilometers to 7.8 (36 mpg)...

  12. Bera 3.2 Q4 fuel consumption.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I just thought this may be of interest. Yesterday I took my car to Nottingham. A 190 mile trip. A small amount of country lane and town driving to get me to the motorways. M2, M25 (Dartford crossing) and M1. Roads not known for their free flowing traffic. Long sections of road works on the M1...
  13. GT 1.9 Diesel - fuel consumption?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Not after specifics just want to know what this car is like is it thirsty in daily commute traffic or long journeys? Same as a 147 1.9?
  14. 156 2.5 V6 fuel consumption

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. I have a 156 2.5 V6. Currently getting around 13 - 14 mpg. Surely I should be doing better than that? Before anyone suggests it... I don't always have a heavy right foot - although it is fun! I have had my engine recently tera-cleaned (which I highly recommend) and that improved this mpg...
  15. Real world Fuel consumption question - V6 166

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, I'm currently looking for a large comfy cruiser to use for a few runs to France. I had a pug 407 diesel last year which was great for the job, however would like to stick with Alfa if possible. I've seen a nice 2.5 v6 166 for sale which would be ideal, however I wonder if 30 to the gallon...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I drive a 147 JTD 16V from late 2006. I've posted this problem more then once but have some info to give and hope sombody can help me to get my consumption a bit better. Right now I average between 33 and 35MPG. Which to me seems bad. I drive to work: 25km to and 25km back, so 50...
  17. Electric Speedo and Fuel Consumption

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi! I've just purchased a Mito 0.9 twinair which I am absolutely loving. Really nippy and fun to drive. As they say, nothing drives like an Alfa! I have a couple of issues I was hoping someone could help with: When I bought it there was an electric speedometer on the display which I seem to...
  18. Fuel Consumption 1.9JTDM

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've just bought a 2008 Alfa 159 1.9JTDM and in the main am pretty pleased with it - it drives very well and is punchy enough. What I am not so pleased with is the fuel consumption. I had expected that motorway driving at 70-80mph would certainly get 50MPG - the same journey in my sons 2.2...

  20. 3.2 v6 fuel consumption

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, having just filled up my new 3.2 GT twice in 24hrs I was wondering what figures for fuel consumption people are getting from their V6's? On a motorway run with some traffic and some m6 toll (:xmas:) I got 270 miles out of a tank. Can I expect better?
