Re: 500L - 1.6 multijet poor mpg

I'm interested in this also. Had ours 1.6 120 3 months now and averaging 38mpg (mainly stop start traffic I admit, but some good runs). But even on a run its doing only high 40's. Fiat are telling me this is normal. Its far worse than my automatic 2ltr diesel skoda superb and not much better than the 2ltr petrol mazda5 it replaced (to get better mpg).

It has recently been serviced and all tyre pressures are fine.

Re: 500L - 1.6 multijet poor mpg

Iíve got a grande punto with the same engine I get 45 combined easily and 60 on a run. Mine does lots of short journeys and runs on Asda diesel, it gets serviced religiously and maintained with multiscan ecu, all emissions equipment is original and I donít notice a difference in winter/summer. However if you drive it in a spirited manner all those figures disappear, and probably are similar to above
