    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As it says really, which fuel do you prefer in your 916 and why? Craig
  2. Neste My or other HVO-based fuels in diesel Alfas

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello Has anyone used some of these diesel fuels in their jtdm engines? Yesterday I bit the bullet and tried, filled half a tank with Neste My fuel. Results were instantaneous. Car runs smoother, sounds better and there is no smoke coming from the exhaust even when accelerating hard. I have...
  3. Brera fuel cap

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As much as we all 'love' the quirky nature of owning an Alfa and how it's possible to laugh and be worried at exactly the same time, here's something that maybe someone has an answer to. Twice now over the last 10 months the fuel cap didn't flip open. On both occasions having tried repetitively...
  4. fuel pump wire

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone. Want to change something in the car and i need the cable that goes to the fuel pump, +12V voltage. I have so far been able to determine that this should be a black cable (below / next to the driver's seat). I'm still not sure because the cable is also connected to the ground...
  5. Fuel Efficiency Reset

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi there, I just traded in my car for a 2017 Giulia. How do I reset the fuel consumption? I am able to reset it for Trips A or B, but not the ongoing one. Is there a way to do so? I've tried to hold the button as I would reset for trips but no luck. Thank you, Jimmy
  6. Help me diagnose bad fuel consumption - 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It's a 147 diesel 16V - 140HP variant with a remap to about 175HP. I've got MES and I suspect something is wrong due to my poor fuel consumption. Which values should I check on diagnosis to see if there is indeed something wrong, perhaps a drop in pressure, vacuum leak, airflow? It's the free...
  7. Who else has got the Stelvio fuel level recall letter?

    Alfa Stelvio
    Got mine Friday morning. Ref: Alfa Romeo Recal/update 8242. Incorrect Fuel Level Reading on Instrument Panel. Quite surprised, as it says they are worried (it is a safety issue apparently) that the car could report more fuel than is actually in the tank. In the last 8k miles, I'd say mine is...
  8. Winter is coming... Have they fixed the fuel cap and the demister yet?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all Its starting to get cold again. My fuel cap is showing signs of going wonky again, and the rear demister not working when the battery is 'low' is starting to be an issue. Anyone know if Alfa have fixed either of these since last year? Thanks
  9. Fuel leak

    Alfa GTA
    Awkward to quote my own post. However might save someone trouble. Posted this in 164/166 section. But valid for all 24V Alfa.
  10. E10 fuel in a TS/JTS?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So last month, over here (the netherlands) all 95 fuel was now switched to E10, so up to 10% ethanol. My alfa-indy takes the official line from the e10-check website, meaning no pre-2010 alfas are even listed, and they advise me to use non-e10 fuels such as V-power (which ive done last fill-up)...
  11. Fuel flow problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I have a 2002 147 2.0 TSpark that wont rev properly. It idles perfectly and revs to about 2000rpm before struggling. I suspect it is running lean after that. This hose (with the red tape in) is perished and leaks petrol, so I wonder if it sucks air in at higher revs?? The key thing is, which...
  12. Fuel Flap not flush

    Alfa Stelvio
    Hi All, Went to fill up yesterday and noticed the fuel flap looked a bit misaligned, I've had a few occasions where it doesn't close on the first push as if it's not mating to the latch correctly, anyway, I found that the painted flap appears to be moving slightly from the big black plastic...
  13. Spider 2000 Improving Fuel Consumption

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I just took my Spider to the Highlands for a proper road trip. One thing that surprised me was the high fuel consumption, especially with Super unleaded being over £1.40 per was starting to bug me a little after 1000 miles in three days... I have a 166 which weighs another 500kg...

  15. Horrible fuel consumption on my new Giulietta

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello everyone! I bought an Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2.0 JTDM-2 140 PS last month. It is a 2011 model year and my first Alfa ever! For now i love the car so much, but i have once concern. The gas mileage is horrible and way off the advertised 5.7l in the City. My main commute to work is a 6km long...
  16. Broke Fuel rail connector

    Alfa GTA
    So decided I’d finally overhaul the engine cover and plenum and fit my new chrome inlet runners seeing as the weather was good. When taking off the fuel rails the grey plastic elbow that connects to them sheared. The other bit is still in the rubber hose. What are my options? Are the plastic...
  17. Low fuel warning on Giulia Veloce

    Alfa Giulia
    New owner on first full tankful... Warning light came on at 1/4 tank left, showing around 50 miles to empty - this quickly changed to showing no numeric at all, just 3 horizontal dashes. Fuel consumption so far has been poor - low 20's (urban/commuting) and i have been taking it very easy. I am...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello i looked at my car's fuel injection correction and i noted that cylinder no 2 have way too high correction compared to the rest. Should i be worried? Bought this car 2 days ago. Changed engine oil and it was SOOOO dark like black paint! Im not kidding never seen such dark oil that you...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi. I have readed that someone upgraded the Fuel Pressure Pump in front of the Rail on an Alfa 1,75 TBI to an more stronger one. Did someone know something about? I want to install it on the 200HP one, and not on 4C they did. OR do someone if we could mod the Giulia 2.0TBI one on the Old...
