consumption

  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The fuel consumption on our 2.0ts sportwagen has been getting worse and is scarily expensive now plus there is always white smoke coming out of the exhaust and even more when accelerating. The car drives great, no loss of power, coolant levels dont drop (certainly not noticeable anyway) and the...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all I own Alfa Giulietta 1.4 TB Multiair with TCT transmission (its has around 2500 km on the odometer right now) My car consumes more fuel that officially declared by Alfa. To be more precise 9.5-10 per 100km - urban-motorway mixed. (I mostly drive in N mode). I do like a bit of...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, never read on any forums about Alfas before buying one, was gonna do it anyway. Purchased a 2006 147 1.6 TI... beautiful car, only 55k, Alfa Red, TI spec, 17in alloys etc... great. Travelled from Fife in my 2005 Mondeo 2.0TD Titanium X auto and got the Alfa in Helensborough (west...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Much as I love my GTV TS, the average fuel consumption of 26-27mpg is a bit hard on the wallet with a 60 mile round-trip commute 5 days a week. I have found what looks to be a good 2002 2.4JTD 156 Sportwagon. Can anybody give me a clue as to what the fuel consumption is likely to be in the real...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I had a thread about this a while back where I thought it was me being stupid - drove to Ireland, and on getting there, found the oil at minimum, which is unusual for me. Since then I've had two more incidents where it's been unexpectedly low. The last one was Sunday - checked the oil, cold and...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've not driven the alfa much as I've been restoring her. Now noticed that I'm getting under 20mpg (when the fuel dial works - lol). Could this be because I have fitted a CF3 engine - still using the original CF2 ECU and CF2 exhaust? (Fitted all the CF2 bits to it) Could it need tuning? Could it...
  7. Alfa 164 & 166
    I drive around 15000 miles a year and drive a diesel and hate diesels.i waz lookkng at a 2004 166 2.0 6 speed and was wondering what mpg would I get and would it be worth going for petrol. My gtv does about 30 mpg.
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, This problem has probably been asked a million times! What is the fuel consumption of a 147 jtdm really like??? I have a 58 plate 147 and it seems to do 27mpg around town and 45mpg on a run!!! this just seams a tad low for a diesel!!! only got the 45mpg driving very conservatively on a 150...
  9. Alfa 164 & 166
    Now, here's a thing. When the tank is full, foot to the floor. Hear that V6 howl! When the yellow fuel warning light comes on, drive steady - check the mpg readout. Hmmm...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just refilled with diesel today, I got 611 miles from the last tank. I havent had those many miles for ages. Previous refill I got 560 miles, that has been typical. So whats changed? Same journeys, same driving style. The only thing that is different is that the car was serviced between the two...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, simple question: Why board computer show average fuel consumption 6.1 L/100 km, and real consumption is 11 L/100 km? (i did reset board computer)
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have just had Injector 4 replaced on my 2009 Alfa 159 Diesel, as the car was smoking. The Fuel Consumption has dropped from a just about acceptable 40MPG to a totally unacceptable 30MPG. Any ideas. I do a high mileage and cannot afford such poor consumption. Any advice would be greatly...
  13. South Africa
    What are you guys getting? L / 100km? I haven't done a full tank yet, but OBC for current tank is on 9.6l / 100km, and is halfway between half and quarter tank... Been driving 85% in town and 15% on highway... Not really been driving hard at all. That 'Actual Consumption' reading keeps my eyes...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    Don't worry, this is not a new thread to whine about high fuel consumption. I know I sound like a stuck record but honestly, the 1.4 MA engine is a minor miracle. I took my Bella to Sutherland for a weekend of star gazing. Sutherland is 380km from Somerset West and on the way one climbs from...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After cleaning out a stuck EGR valve and fitting the OEM EGR restriction plate. My car was running wonderfully. After a few days, its down on power ( engine making some juntering noises) and the fuel economy has gone from 30MPG city driving to 10-12? Any ideas of what this could be. I suspect a...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, i think that my car, AR 156, 105.000 km (2004. year) consume to much fuel. In the city crowd it is 12 liter/100 km. Board computer shows 6.2 liter/100 km. Car is going good. No smoke. EGR is off. Dont know what engine parts can cause that consumption, so my only suspicion is fuel leak...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Most of my driving is on A Roads and Motorways over long distances. I drive sensibly but not overly economically. My Alfa 'Tank to Tank' is returning 37MPG, as opposed to my previous 520D that returned over similar conditions 48MPG. With the price of Diesel I am concerned by this. I changed...
  18. Alfa Giulietta
    I have read on other threads that sometimes the given average fuel consumption differs from the actual. The average read out on ours was 44mpg and when I brim to brimmed it it infact was 48.5mpg. I was pleasantly surprised. I did wonder if having the 18" wheels will make a difference to this...

    hi,anyone out there having probs with oil consumption 11reg 1.4 non turbo mito 12,000mls second time since new oil has been below dipstick,
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello there, Recently my car decided to drink tons of gas! I performed a little test this morning with the following results: Do you think my lambda sensor is going down or already gone? Can I try anything else to verify what is going on? If my search is correct, I am in need of either a...
