Probably will need mapping out bud I'd imagine - ah so frustrating, I should've read a few more reviews - if I know I'd be hitting low 40s I probably would've opted for another 147/159/mito 😬I have the 1.6 JTDM,motorway miles at speed limit is 56 MPG,mix of both is 42 MPG,i have installed an EGR restrictor plate with 8mm hole,have noticed a very slight improvement,i don't think you can just blank the EGR without getting it mapped out,could be wrong?
That gives Me hope! That's exactly the sort of figures I was expecting.140, 150, 170, 175?
Have had over 78 MPG out of my 170 when really trying. High 60s when keeping up with traffic, 55 when no motorways.
Absolutely granny'd it along the motorway this morning... 42 mpg 🙄The official MPG is 60mpg. I get that on the computer if I sit at 60mph in 6th gear on the flat. Between 50 and 60 for motorway driving seems normal. I would check the air filter, nice pleasant job !
The best we have ever got on our 170 is 52mpg. Mixed dirving normally averages about 43-44mpg.
On a real cold day, especially with the heater on the car takes ages to get up to temperature, and on a shorter tip you can easily get less than 40mpg.
The car is totally standard.
They are not especially great on fuel for a 2.0 diesel.
A remapped 118d with an N47 - the chain eaterYou may get a better MPG with a remap and EGR delete, but it will only be a couple of MPG at best.
I had a N57 engined 330d with manual gearbox and it was better on fuel then the G.
Which BMW did you have before?
That's great to hear mate - if I can hit anything north of 50 I'll be chuffed, it's what I'd expect from it2014 2.0 jtdm Sportiva 175 TCT 125k miles - 26 mile each way commute so 52 per day, mix of A, B and unclassified roads, no real traffic crawling unless there's an issue.
No mods, just regular use and servicing. 54.5 mpg consistent over the last year.
I don't hang about but I don't use Dynamic - Normal most of the time but All Weather when it's grotty like now.
Alfas normally have cracking diesels, had 147s, mitos, 159s all plenty of grunt, all decent economy for their sizes25mpg and about 32mpg on a run.
As my mate says, you don't buy an Alfa for it's economy.
