Hi.
Does anyone have or can point me in the direction of the standard torque curve (graph) for a 2008 159ti, 1.9 JTDm?

I have just brought a 159 ti having had a GT 1.9JTD and the fuel economy is shocking. In the GT I was averaging 47 mpg, and noticed that the 159 appears to have a flat torque curve. Therefore, my driving style needs to be totally different to achieve more mpg.

If anyone has a graph of the torque curve it would be appreciated? Thanks.

same engine in the 159 as in the later GTs, but with about 200kg more car to pull and a less aerodynamic shape unfortunately. On the plus side the 159 is lovely..

Thank you.

Around town I am getting probably 30 ish. I have managed to get up to 36.5 buy changing my driving style. On a run I am in the mid 30's to 40, hence the request for a torque curve.
