Re: 1.3 mulitjet, Anyone got theirs refitted with new gasket yet?

Me too, Im surprised about the 1.2, as my new Panda never bettered around 48mpg, and the 1.2 Micra I had was 45mpg so obviously Fiat have done something good there.
Still, the extra torque is what I wanted to even if its 50 to 55 then Id be happy... just wish theyd build the car, been 6 weeks now and still no build week

That average was after 1300 miles on 80 mile a day total to commute. Going to work was hilly in parts and not straight roads. So engine was getting used more. Different route home though. Some extended periods of sub 50mph. Some hilly parts. But more constant speed and terrain than getting to work.
I am due to be driving up the A1 to Newcastle soon. So am expecting the 60.4 to increase a tad.

I think the particulate filter slows it down a bit so could be looking for more power and torque. Could do with some lower springs!
Coming from a 1.9 mjet I have to boot the 5oo a bit more to get the performance I'm used to.

Said goodbye to my 156 today and averaged 59.9 mpg on the 70 mile trip to the new owners, but I was driving sedately. Maybe I should try that in my 5oo!
