  1. What we getting MPG?

    Alfa Stelvio
    Just had a chance to see what I'm getting MPG on a round trip from Essex to Crewe.. Managed 35.8mpg in "N" Mode without aircon on.. Lot better than my GTV was ..
  2. JTD 81kw (147) bad MPG (29,7 combined)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had the issue of high consumption in a while and nothing really seems to help it. The board computer says 10.1l/100 km (28 MPG), but by filling the tank full, driving for 410 km and topping up again, 39 liters fit, which calculates to 9.5l/100 or almost 30 MPG, which is better than the...
  3. MPG - Driving Miss Daisy

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I seen quite a few threads over the years describing the poor MPG of our 159s. So I wondered what was actually possible. I've started doing a weekly commute of nearly 200 miles, so I decided to see what I could achieve This is my best effort so far (attached) in my 2010 159 Ti 2.0 (170) with...
  4. MPG after induction kit

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, So I fitted a ram air induction kit (dry) a while back, however, since then my mpg has dropped quite a bit, from high 20's to around 15mpg. I have cleaned the MAF with no luck. I've also changed the lambda sensor as I got an engine management come up and hoped that would solve the...
  5. Calling all Giulietta cloverleaf 1.75 (2011) owners (MPG)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hey All Just wondering what kind of motorway MPG / long haul driving MPG you get with your (2011 onward) cloverleaf? Don`t care about city driving as I will be avoiding it at all costs. Trying to decide between a cloverleaf and 1.4 tb multiair. There are a few cloverleaf`s for sale around...
  6. Mpg

    Alfa Giulia
    As I'm still researching the Giulia I have a couple of questions 1- On the Petrol Veloce what is the average MPG 2- On my past 159 I had an issue with the Alfa Red paint badly chipping, this was eventually remedied by the dealer after two bottom half resprays, they said the issue was down to...
  7. MPG 1.4 turbo 155HP

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone, I recently bought an '08 1.4T-jet with 155BHP. After 1000KM's my average MPG is 8.6L/100km. I find this quite high. It's combined city and highway usage. Can't seem to find the answer if this is normal. If not, is there any way to reduce the gas usage? Thanks!
  8. Buying 159 2.0 JTDM

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all! New to the forum, though I have been lurking for a little while to read up on the whole Alfa-owning-experience and to do some research on the 159. My understanding is that the later 2.0L is the one to go for in terms of getting a diesel. However I'm seeing mixed info on fuel...
  9. Poor MPG?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi from sunny Telford ;) I Have a 2008 GT 1.9 Diesel Q2 170, 80,000 miles. I drive I'd say "normally" but am only getting an indicated 30mpg (I have used nearly half a tank but covered just 150 miles) There is no smoke on acceleration and drives fine so not sure if there's actually a problem? I...
  10. My Giulietta is drinking coolant again!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Well what a journey my 11' plate 1.4MA (170) has been on so far.. So I have the following done: Full service Carbon Engine Clean (Voodoo magic but was worth it for £25) Water Pump replaced All belts replaced Radiator replaced (suggested that should have fixed the coolant leak in the first...
  11. Sportiva Nav 2.0 175bhp TCT - Real life MPG?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, new here, although had a Mito for the last 4 years. Hopefully upgrading to the 175bhp diesel Sportiva Nav Giulietts and whilst the official economy figures sound amazing I guess they are rather fantasy! I just wondered if anyone else has this model and what MPG they tended to get...
  12. What's a realistic mpg for 2016 Veloce 1750 TBi 240bhp?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I'm considering trading up from my Giulietta QV Line 2.0 JTDM 170bhp diesel to a 2016 1750 TBi 240bhp petrol Veloce. I do 10k miles a year (possibly less in the future due to a rail commute) and want to calculate how much more the petrol might cost me a year. I can do the maths fine...
  13. 1.4 Tb motorway mpg?

  15. MCSF in 3rd @ 100 kmh WOT, 1st gear no boost, very low air mass readings, BAD MPG

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Parts changed in March: MAP Sensor Overboost valve (Pierburg) New MAF fitted and tried, still low readings - two months ago. Issues the car has: - First gear seems to have no boost at all, other gears need some time to get up to boost and then the car pulls; not as it should but still the...
  16. Alfa 156 1.6 T Spark Fuel Consumption & MPG read out

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Back into Alfa ownership and need a little guidance regarding my 156 1.6 TSpark. I've owned it for a few days and have I think poor fuel economy during my commute to work (8miles each way country roads). I've based this on the gauge shifting a lot rather than MPG readout, as it has used...
  17. emissions cheats and mpg

    General Alfa Discussion
    just reading that Mercedes Benz has now recalled over 700000 cars to have emissions software changed and the whole VAG emmisions cheating scandal I wonder how many more have been up to it and is this the reason why we in our 159's can't get any where near the mpg figures of our so called...
  18. Unusual


    There's something you don't see every day..!
  19. M.p.g.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I filled up my 147 2.0 Lusso (2002) to the first click of the petrol nozzle, & reset the computer & milage trip. We drove from South Devon to Leeds ( M5 M42 M1), & parked the car up for three days. Next we drove to Manchester via motorway, stopped the night & then drove down to Birmingham (M6)...
