Re: My Stilo Abarth 3dr Manual

No guys,

Seriously I am averaging 48mpg, I drive at 56mph along the M6 and M56 to work and never touch the brakes until im in the company car park, I just make sure I keep under half a tank of fuel to keep the weight down and run it on Total Excellium. It seems to be working.

My Average MPG combined with town driving on the weekend is 37.9mpg. and on motorway it sticks at 48mpg.

I just wish I was getting what my mother was out of her Grande Punto 1.2 Active, 67.9mpg according to the computer and her average consumption is 58mpg.

Can anyone reccomend a decent car wax as well, im currently using Turtle but doesn't seem to be doing the job.

Also does anyone have any tips on engine oil, my dealership @ forward autos reccomends Silenia Performer it seems pretty good but was wondering if anyone knew of any better FL oil to use other than performer. I used to use the Selina Sport in my Chinq Sporting.

Thanks for taking a look, im going to get my wheels reconditioned next month because there starting to look a little tired. Anyone know if the mobile services are any good or am I better going to a wheel shop?

Cheers,

Warren

Re: My Stilo Abarth 3dr Manual

i use to use turtle wax stuff, i wouldnt bother anymore complete waste of money and time...

You want to polish it first then you seal it with a gloss/wax usually. take a look at www.detailingworld.co.uk for good advice on products, etc...

Personally this is how i polish my bodywork up:

X2 coats Autoglym super resin polish

X2 coats Autoglym extra gloss protection

X2 coats Collinite 476 wax, with the rotary

try here for good products, you pay for what you get: http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/
Thanks Pookster thanked for this post

Re: My Stilo Abarth 3dr Manual

I used Meguiars NXT spray on polish for the first time yesterday, Only cost about 8 for a 700ml bottle, spray on, wipe it around with a clean cotton cloth. Come back 10mins later and buff it.... takes no time to polish up either. Looks lovely.
