Re: what mpg are you getting

Having same problem. Since GMD at Durham closed I started to use Springfield Fiat in Gateshead to do servicing. However when I went to get a new Tipo last year I was informed they had lost francise. I had go to Richard Hardie Sunderland to get car and they are the only dealership in the area.

Getting 48-50 around town in 1.4 95hp estate, have seen around 60 on motorway journeys but mid/upper 50's solid. The trick is to change up early, not gassing it, and on motorways the threshold is definitely 65mph. Up to that (if you can stand it) very good mpg is available. Over that, inevitably, it gets heavier as the resistance increases. Since it's not an overtly sporty motor, not hooning it about is no great loss - I'll get another Trans Am if I feel like doing that. Frankly, on Britain's motorways these days I find you're largely stuck with staring at the back of a Transit van anyway, so might as well back off and save money.

Lack of competion between dealers cannot be good for customers.

Re: what mpg are you getting

well I have thrown the towel in with the petrol Tipo, mine just passed itsfirst test this week at sherwoods Gateshead (ex Fiat dealer), to be told the rear shocks need doing under warranty so I have had to go to Richard hardie in sunderland, however they had a 1.6 tipo 120hp multijet diesel and I have done
the trade in, my petrol was only getting 29 mph round the doors, here`s hoping the diesel will be better as I retire next year

what mpg are you getting

In general I get an average about 39mpg in the 1.4 T-Jet (120bhp) which I donít think is too bad, I reset the trip every time I fuel up and do a mixture of town and motorway driving. The official Fiat figure on a combined cycle for the Tipo with a 1.4 T-Jet engine is 40.4mpg (I think).
