consumption

  1. South Africa
    Did you know, for those that haven't tried it, that by putting ou car in "all weather" mode you can drop you consumption? A buddy of mine has a GQV and has just dropped from 12L/100KM to 10L/100KM :wow: Thats like having 2 different drivers in the car! However in "dynamic" he gets 16L/100KM...

    Hi guys, I think should be something wrong with my 1.4 boxer or better with the cooling system. It is consuming a lot of water, let's say I need to fill the reservoir every 2-3 days depending on how long do I drive, especially when drove in traffic. At the moment I'm using just water (no...

    Why do Alfas generally have such poor fuel consumption? My piddly little 2.2 JTS is about as economical as a 4.0+ litre V8 engine. Obviously, I love the car but am surprised at the very poor fuel consumption.

    'ello to everyone out there. I currently drive a 2006 159 Q4 and had to replace my fuel pump recently. Before replacing the fuel pump: Urban Cycle 14.7L/100km = 15-16mpg Long Distance 10L/100km = 24mpg After replacing fuel pump: Urban cycle = currently sitting at 10.5L/100km average but this is...

    Hi Who knows why the fuel consumption indicator at 100 km / h never changes?
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am getting around 27-28 mpg on 400 mile motorway drives and only slightly above 20 mpg around inner London in my 2006 147 2.0TS (CF3) with 25k miles on the clock. On my 1998 GTV 2.0 TS (CF1), which has done approx. 80k miles, I am getting at least 35mpg for the same motorway drive and around...

    Hi everyone, I have a very lovely dark green-gray 75 1.6ie with 260.000km on the clock. I purchased her recently, nice to drive and feel good on the road, I had previosly 33, and now I want to change an oil, but don't know what to put because of high mileage, and previous owner mixed a few...
  8. Alfa GTA
    I know this topic has been done to death, but being a relatively recent GTA owner (but long time V6 owner), I am very impressed with with the fuel consumption of my GTA. Just re-filled up after a very busy week of driving which involved my usual commute of 20 motorway miles, a trip across...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, and HELP I have my 156 for about a year, and as soon as I got it I noticed that it takes a lot of gasoline, lately I got a feeling that it got worse... Does anyone have any suggestion for what should I check, or what could be the problem??? I can't say, all of my driving is in the city, but...

    So there's a well read sticky about the 2.4 fuel consumption, and its making me jealous! My 2.0 struggles to reach the lofty heights of 35 people are complaining about. My average over 2000 (90%) motorway miles is 35, my average journey is 30 miles (30/40mins) to work each day down the...
  11. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    S2 Spider 2000 (hood down) : Just wondering what mpg you should expect from an S2 - varied driving - hills, urban , cold starts and some runs and a few thrashings, I'm wondering whether to get the carbs tuned but at £300 for a RR session (the guy is seriously knowledgeable) that would take a lot...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    How accurate are the onboard computers showing my average mpg? On a recent trip mine showed an average of 57.1mpg which suprised me because i was giving it some wellie on mainly de restricted A roads :)
  13. South Africa
    We took the Spider from Pinetown up to 'Maritzburg to attend an Italian Day at the VSSC. Filled up before we left, second click at the pump, and filled up when we got back, also second click at the same pump. No fancy economy run driving, averaged 110Kph going up on the highway and then took...

    Hi All, I've seen the sticky for the 2.4 fuel figures, but wondered what kind of Fuel consumption for the 2.2. I'm looking at buying a Brera, but wanted to know if it's going to cost a lot to run. Any help would be great Thanks

    what is the acceptable oil consumption for an alfa romeo engine with 100k-170k miles in general?:thumbs:
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello! I've got myself a 2005 156, 2.0 JTS with around 100k km on the clock which I have a couple of problems with. 1. The engine's uneven. It's mostly noticeable on idle, where it jerks some, but, usually isn't VERY noticeable, unless you stand behind her and listen to the exhaust. It's...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys. I have followed protocol & changed oil & used 10w60 synthetic (agip) and its great , but my JTS really seems to be using an unusual amount of oil still. Just wondered if ther was a magic cocktail I could use , like the Lucas oil stabiliser ?, or ? I recon I'm using a litre every 1000...

    I am toying with the idea of getting a Brera 3.2 Q4. The thing that worries me is the woeful fuel consumption, especially as I will be coming from a remapped GT 1.9JTDm which has seen over 55mpg. I will be looking to mod the Brera to make it breathe easier and maybe also a remap. So just...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I'm just wondering... I know Alfa's are known to drink oil at a tremendous rate, but really how much oil do your cars use? I have the 2.0JTS and with mainly traffic driving and occasional blasts down the motorway... i've had to buy two litres of oil since February! Is this normal? I...
