2003 Alfa Romeo 156

DIESEL L5

Property of garrontower Added Oct 2013 Location: Newry

I purchased my Alfa Romeo 156 JTD 2.4 150PS on the 22nd September 2003 and to date have kept a full record of the fuel used.

Its current mileage is 69,103 miles and I have used 6,900 litres of diesel and am on my 14th bottles of Millers Diesel Fuel Additive which I have used since new.

I always have filled it with 50l at each fill and 1 measure of the Millers Additive.

To date my car has average 10 miles per litre which equates to 45.5 mpg (UK) overall.

If I didn't live in the City (Newry, County Down, in Northern Ireland)I would expect my consumption to be in the mid 50s mpg UK.

This car has travelled at a shown speed in excess of 130mph whilst in Europe but the maximum speed at home is 70 mph (highway) and 30 mph (built-up areas).

I tend to drive with a light right foot and I do not, for 99.9% of the time, accelerate with my foot to the floor but I do believe in slow in and fast-out whilst cornering and attempting to hit each and every right hand corner's apex.

Overall, to say that I am happy with this consumption is an understatement.
