In both the Spider and Brera, both 2.2, we usually get around 28, this time of the year when it is cold that drops to 27 ish. Similar driving profile to yours.

On the Trip?

Is that on the trip ? my trip said 27.5 but working it out manually it equated to 24.9 ...guess it seems about right pretty thirsty for a 2.2 weight i guess ..

lussoman is that calculated or via the trip ? you seem to be very economical .. i only really expected around 28 but to be honest so far at 24.9 calculated , but the naughty trip telling me 27.5 i am a little dissapointed ..i will do around 15000 Alfa miles this year ... and to think i almost bought the V6 .. my V6 Aero does 28 on average with the same use !!!! Little Nelly my lovely 1968 SWB Landrover does 22 with her two and quarter petrol ..so the Alfa is lovely but lets face it 2.2 25 MPG ..Not sure consumption really equals performance !! not to worry nice drive anyway ...

A combination of the trip and from memory.
I guess town driving could get to low-20s depending on traffic lights and being sat at junctions.
The motorway one is very accurate as I do the same 15 mile stretch, 30 mile round trip a couple of times a week.

I have no interest in working it out accurately, I occasionally just like to have a rough idea, nothing more.
The thought of brimming the tank, working out exactly how much I've put in and exactly what mileage that's given me completely bores me to tears :lol:.
