  1. 156 JTS oil consumption

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Lately my wife 156 JTS has started to use a bit more oil than it previously has done. Could the root cause be a blocked breather valve? Has anyone experience with this topic? The breather valve (p/n 71713715) is not the most expensive part so I think I will buy a new one just to rule out that...

  5. Diesel consumption tips wanted

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My average fuel consumption went from 6.7 to 7ltrs /100 km and I do not seem to get it down again. - the engine has been chip tuned, EGR closed , but DPF still working - I have used a DPF cleaning fuel additive twice the last months - change gear usually around 3000 rpm, occasionaly up to 3500...
  6. High fuel consumption? 135hp

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi! I was wondering what you guys with the 135hp multiair engine gets for average mpg? I get 28mpg on normal driving, not going over 3k rpm when shifting. This is what the display is telling me, I just bought the car, so i don't really know what to Expect. While accelerating, barely touching...

  9. 156 2.5 v6 vs 3.0 v6 - fuel consumption and more...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys! I have the possibility of purchasing a low mileage 156 2.5 v6 with a busted cambelt (actually it was the tensioner) and a few bent valves. I am facing two options here and I'd like your opinion: a) fix this engine; b) swap it for a 3.0. In terms of cost, my mechanic tells me he does...
  10. DPF relation to fuel consumption questions

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Recently I had my 159 Jtdm with 80000 km remapped and the EGR closed. The DPF was left alone for ecological reasons. Though there is better acceleration in first and second gear the fuel consumption has raised from 37mpg to 39 mpg. ( 7.5 to 7.8 km/L) I have been trying to drive more...
  11. Strange fuel consumption (159 2.4 Diesel)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have owned my 159 2.4 ti for a couple of months now and have noticed some strange fuel consumption antics - just wondering if anyone knows what is happening, not a problem I am just curious. I do a lot of motorway miles, so tend to set the cruise to 60mph (100kph) and let it do its thing. I...
  12. Increased fuel consumption - Possible causes

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys, I bought a used Mito 155CV a couple of months ago. The car has about 25.000km. It has very little mileage , as it's previews owner rarely used it. I completed my first small road trip(about 250km) with no issue at all while on road. On my next run, I've noticed highly increased fuel...
  13. Alfa Romeo 159 Ti consumption and performance VS the others

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm about to get my 159 2.2 JTS and I've already purchased all the required stuff to turn her into a Ti (..could not find a proper Ti - ready). The conversation around the use of 19" wheels is resulting into a major impact both in performance and av. consumption. If I take account my own...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello from Northern Ireland, I'm a delighted owner of a 2006 159 2.4 lusso 137k miles. On my daily commute to work (60 miles round trip) I am getting 46 mpg although the computer reads around 42mpg.

  15. 159 Electrical Power Consumption

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm about to order my third battery in 7 years for my 159 2.4 Ti diesel which seems to be par for the course having read a few posts on batteries. I have found that if I leave the vehicle for 2 -3 weeks the battery goes flat so I was wondering about current usage and whether anyone has a power...

  17. Your honest, real-world fuel consumption

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 2.4 Jdtm 200hp Ti Qtronic is currently giving me (according to the trip computer) a miserable 21mpg, (around 13.5l/100km). This is for around town, driving gently. I've read wildly varying fuel consumption figures both here and elsewhere. From 35mpg+ (sounds wildly optimistic) down to 15mpg...
  18. Alfa 166 v6 3.0 Super year 2000 oil consumption

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just checked the oil and last service data and have now calculated that I've lost a bit more than half a liter of oil in 5000 miles. A couple of years back I remember engine simply did not use any oil. Assuming that there's no leak - I can't see any obvious ones - what would this level of oil...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hey Alfaowners, AR GT 2.0 JTS Fuel consumption -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IR5Rwj7wY9Q JTS performance is realy bad - engine's power is low and fuel consumption not as expected. If you are going to buy GT you should definitely go to 3.2 V6 or Diesel + remap. Do you have similar feelings...
