    What would be a realistic average mpg figure for a relatively steadily driven 1750 ti s/w? 34mpg is often quoted, but is it realistic? Cheers Ant

  3. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all alfisti, I've a 1.3 95 hp MiTo. My problem is sometimes a diesel consumption increases to 10-15 L/100 km (odometer screen reading) in DNA normal mode even though motor temperature is normal (90 'C), at 1500-2000 rpm, there is no road incline, weather temperature is about 15 'C, car...

    My son is looking to change from twin air mito to a 1.4 tct G, be interesting to know what real world mpg people are getting, I'm guessing the two wont be far apart. Would be interested in your comments, thanks!

    Hi, It's possible to check the consumption by liter per hour?
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all, I know that this is eternal theme, but I m frustrate about it. I m aware that 159 is not economical but.... Car is 2010, 2.0mjet with 170bhp. And I m not talking here about fuel consumption in the city (which is pathetic, 10l/100km, around 23,5 mpg). Ok maybe I have heavy feet and...

    Hey guys I have Mobil 1 5w 50 in my car and I constantly rev her up. I find that I add 200- 300ml every 200km. Should I switch to a 10w 60 or 10w 40? Climate where I live goes down to 10℃ and highest is 40℃

    Hi all, I found a thread from back in April 2014 about this, but it didn't really answer my queries. So, first of all, apologies for repetition. My 2001 2.0 TS has higher oil consumption than I'd expect - 3000 km from max to min. It does rattle a little, especially when cold, but after just...

    Morning all, When starting the alfa this morning I noticed the LCD display had lost one bar in oil level. I put this down to me parking downhill on the drive whereas I usually face uphill. After my commute I switched off and tried again. Still one bar missing. I checked manually with the...

    Hi guys! I am an AR fan, and of course - sometimes we have to fix our horses :) I hope you can help me. While I am driving lets 100km/h fuel comp = 5-6l. when I stop to traffic light, or just riding on neutral, consumption starts to grow up to 20-30l. I made a short video, check out...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everybody, I've just changed the filters (oil, fuel, air and pollen) I've changed the brand from mahle to mann. Now I can feel less acceleration than before, could mann air filter be more restrictive than the mahle one, is this possible or is it all in my imagination? :rolleyes: If I...

    Hi guys Just installed new CSC backbox and middle silencer and the fuel consumption has gone sky high! Had a garage to do the work. Any one with the same experience?? Mads

    My car does around 200km/tank I have a good engine no problems with acceleration and is quite. I'm running with no lambda sensor and my MAF was acting up but fixed itself and just worked. My driving is a bit hard but I'd say only 50% of the time. One last thing sometimes my car idles at low rpm...

    Italian consumer group Altroconsumo.it reproduced the official EU test procedure on two cars, and found that, even in the same "controlled conditions", there's something fishy going on. Golf 1.6 TDI claimed: 3.8 l/100km tested: 5.83 l/100km (+53% greater) FIAT Panda 1.2 petrol...

    The other weekend the wifes cousin was down from Yorkshire, she has a 1.4 Golf, about 09 plate. She is the type of person who considers a car as a box with 4 wheels which gets you from A-B and makes a good mobile rubbish tip. I commented on the oil bottle she had in the passenger door pocket. It...

    Hi my G is 7 months old, 3000 miles, multiair tb 170. I check the oil level every month, after 5 months 2000 miles it needed half litre of oil, 7 months 3000 miles on it needs another half litre of oil. I do a lot of short journeys most of the time, just come back from holiday in Dorset, so had...
  18. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hey guys, I've got a problem with my 166 2.0 Super. Basically after ECU reset (90s MAR, 90s off, 15min idle run, 10min off) my fuel consumption went up by more than 3l/100km and yes, I keep my right foot off the pedal. I did the ECU reset procedure because of bad idle and bad cold starts. After...

    Hi Alfistis. I am the happy owner of a 2011 159 2.0 JTDM with 140.000 km on the clock. I bought the car at 122.000 km. In the time of my ownership, the PDF has regenerated 1 time (yellow sign showing up and information of not stopping the motor). However, I "often" (may be once in a week or...

    Yesterday I took a trip to the coast in our Ford focus. This is a 250 mile round trip from here on mixed roads and I just wanted to share my findings. On the trip our 1.6 litre Focus averaged around 35mpg driven in a slightly spirited fashion. The last time I went on the same route I used my...
