The plastic ones are often hard-wearing the the metal one's as they have more give before deforming
And it's usually the ball joints that go rather then the main body of them

Re: what mpg are you getting

If now consummation of fuel it's about 6,5l/100km, maybe after 2-3000km will decrease to 5,5 ??? For how long do you run car "easy", not to push too much the gas pedal and up what rpm?

Re: what mpg are you getting

Thanks Chris, only joking about using toffee. Seriously, plastic should be O.K. as long as the metal ball & socket at each end doesn't wear out so soon. I have replaced these parts in the past on other FIAT's but usually at well over 250,000km. To be replacing them for a second time at 60,000km. seems very wrong, and doesn't bode well for the future.

I have asked the mechanic to let me have the faulty parts so I can dismantle them and see what went wrong. I'll post my findings.

When my present H.P. agreement ends next June I'm changing back to a Panda.
Pandas are brill!

Re: what mpg are you getting

Just a follow up after purchasing my Tipo from Richard Hardie in Sunderland, the car needed some remedial work doing and true to their word all the work has now been done, excellent customer service, especially from Alan, they cannot be faulted, so anyone out their not sure, I can fully recommend them.
also I now get 49 mpg just going round the doors which is excellent. my first mot is due in march 20. Happy Chappy!!!!

100kph: 5.2l/100km / 54 mpg UK / 45 mpg US
110kph: 5.6l/100km / 50mpg UK / 42 mpg US
120kph: 6.3l/100km / 45 mpg UK / 37 mpg US
130kph 7.0l/100km / 40 mpg UK / 34 mpg US

This was using 95-E10 unleaded at 26C with the aircon on 2.

Real consumption was 6.6 litres/100km (42mpg) for mixed driving (6.0 l/100km on the computer).
Does it hold speed well when going uphill on motorways? For example, if you enter at 110kmh it keeps the speed at the top in 6th gear? Is it capable to make any sort of reprise in that situation (for example, from 110kmh to 130kmh?)

Re: what mpg are you getting

When the car was delivered to me, it did 46.5 mpg on a 5 hour motorway journey.


It has now settled to 34.5 mpg on my 5 mile each way daily commute, plus other journeys that are usually shorter.

Re: what mpg are you getting

Hi, does anyone know if we need to put adblue into the tipo diesel, it doesn't
seem to mention it anywhere, my son has just bought a vw passat diesel, and it has an adblue filler next to the fuel filler.

Don't think fiat use ad blue on any of the cars
Ducatto may have it? Not sure but certainly never heard of it on any car

As far as I know, the dpf system in use on a diesel FIAT exhaust performs a similar function to the adblue system used by Volkswagen/Skoda/Audi.
Been driving diesel FIAT cars since the eighties and never used adblue....

Dpfs for particle matter

Scr (selective catalytic reduction) adblue systems are for Nox gas reduction

Re: what mpg are you getting

Personally I wouldn't trust Halfords as far as I could throw there bad name 😂 expect to get told you need new discs all the time that sent covered and a big list of "advisorys"
