Re: what range can you guys get in your cento ?

or stick a turbo on your sei, 200 miles is about my sei's limit. But thats only on long constant speed trip it can do that, pretty sure you could empty it from full in under 100 miles

Couldn't comment on mpi vs spi to drive, never been in a mpi as the spi is clearly much cooler, and the sporting bumper looks so much more italian than the mpi bumper. It a no brainer to me

Re: what range can you guys get in your cento ?

I think going to Stanford will probably be the longest journey I'll have done in my seicento mpi and it will mostly be A14 all the way so I will find out if we can get 60+ mpg

Re: what range can you guys get in your cento ?

On Saturday I did 162 miles on the A1/A19 and used 12.3 liters of petrol, thats 59.98 mpg and i was stuck for 30 mins on the way when some animals got on the road,so did some first gear crawling for a mile or so.
i probably drive like an old wooftah

Not bad going, had 60.9 mpg out of a classic panda a few years back on a run from Liverpool to Norwich

What cruising speed were you at out of interest

Re: what range can you guys get in your cento ?

Talking of cruising speed.... I'm not to sure why, maybe the high revs in 5th so right in the power band? my seicento sporting seems to give great mpg at around 75-80 I made it about 55+ mpg

(strangely this was also fully loaded with most of my belongings and a passenger)

you should get 60 or more cruising at 60 to 70 on that trip boring but cheaper accelerate to 70 up hills lift off and drop to 60 down hills stay at 60 on flat
1700 rpm on trlaling throttle is most eff but boring
