Fiat panda 750

Just a few quick questions, But I have a dying urge to have them answered. =P
A. What is the MPG on them
B. Any idea on the 0-60?
C. (Stupid question) Is the insurance cheaper than on the 1.0L?
D. How difficult are the engines to work on?
E. Is there a FIRE 750?

Re: Fiat panda 750

MPG about 50ish
0-60
Both grp 1 but they will be probably a little cheaper
Easy
The 750 is a FIRE engine

Re: Fiat panda 750

Average in our 750L was 38MPG, Round town, dual. (This being me a youngest with heavy right foot)

Yes, cheaper than the 1.0, esspecially for youngsters!

0-60, gave up counting, but weight does affect them hughly, but they're not designed for speed, even though mine cruised nicely at 80 before the mainfold problem which now persists

As already said, they are the FIRE engines, and look just the same under the bonnet at the 1.0, and are just as easy to work on

Thats ok, and another - If look after the 750's and most Panda's will go on for a long while. Our 750L has 113000miles on the clock and dad's 1000CL 115004 exactly (turned it on the way back from Norwich today)

I've seen Panda with 150000 on the clock, so they should all be good for that if looked after

Re: Fiat panda 750

When I get a 750, I'm firstly concentrating on getting the MOST mpg possible out of the engine, Then it's mostly restoration

Re: Fiat panda 750

The only thing you can do to get the most MPG is drive with a light right foot, but they're so fun, that its hard to XD

Re: Fiat panda 750

All those gadgets are a complete waste of money and better put in your tank as fuel. Just make sure that the engine is tuned and looked after and everything that turns is running free. Simple things like tyre pressure affect MPG, driving with the window open, all that kind of stuff.

As the engine is turning anything that has a load on it mops up BHP and MPG so the least load will benefit, such as an over tightened fan belt, poor condition roller bearings, water instead of coolant that causes corrosion and hampers the water pump.

It's getting painted and conditioned for next years trip (if my back is sorted by then), mandapanda supplied a couple of doors that need painted from Black to white with new trim lines etc as well as a bit of welding here and there

Interior needs re done and the drivers seat re filled, it' also currently a 4 sp box so maybe make it a 5
