Re: 1.4 Mpg

well, its a 1.4, so not really... however, you could be paying too much at the pump? i get about 125 miles from 15 in the 1.4 driving regular, and a little more on an MPG run.

Re: 1.4 Mpg

My 1.4SX does about 125 miles on 12 petrol, but i tend to find the more i drive hard the more MPG i get!!!! Strange!!

Re: 1.4 Mpg

i think about 350 miles is my 1.4s record, but that was mostly dual-carriageway/m-way driving at 60odd mph

In my case i'll get approx 180 miles from a full tank with local hard driving. Approx 300 miles when on motorway.

Re: 1.4 Mpg

Yup average 180 miles, and i'm rarely in start stop traffic either!

Hence the reason i want to get a JTD when funds allow!

Had umpteen checks done on the car by umpteen people including fiat and they find nothing wrong with the car!

Re: 1.4 Mpg

Take the head off and weld the odd valve in each cylinder.

Maybe then you'll get more MPG. Who knows?

Re: 1.4 Mpg

Excellent idea! Why didn't i think of that?

I'll try it tomorrow, will a normal soldering iron do the job?
