When I bought my Brera (2.4 Diesel) the company stats stated it would return an average 41 mpg. I can't get anywhere near that. The cars computer display shows 31.8 at best. The cars done 12000 since new in 06. It's driven most of the time conservatively on a daily run of 7.5 miles each way, the majority on a straight dual carriage way.

It's had its problems with a new head having to be fitted when a collet spring broke and bent a valve (8000 miles) and recently went back to the dealer for the inlet flow valve sticking causing the engine to shut down into safe mode.

All this now resolved and the car is running well. I'm just frustrated with the MPG. Even on a good steady run it don't go above 35 MPG.

Wouldn't swap for the world as it's beautiful.

Any help on the MPG issue would be appreciated.

Thanks, have done and noted the re mapping issue. I'll wait on that one as I'm sure it would affect my warranty.
