Tipoff 1.6 diesel Station wagon

I recently bought a 2017 1.6 Fiat Tipo (diesel). The manufacturer's figures claimed that'll the car would have a combined mpg of 75mpg. My car does about 45 mpg combined. I am sensible driver and bought the car because it seemed cheap to run. What combined mpg are fellow Tipo owners getting? Any suggestions how to get somewhere near Fiats mpg claims?

Re: Tipoff 1.6 diesel Station wagon

Welcome to the forum

Short answer, you won't, those figures are achieved under lab conditions so take any manufacturer quoted mpg figure with a handful of salt. Also, if your 45mpg figure comes from the on board computer, it's probably being optimistic. I have the same engine in my MiTo, doing mostly motorway driving. Trip comp shows 55.7mpg currently, but last tank was closer to 51mpg. I do like to give it beans though

I found this 1.3 Tipo on Fuelly getting 63.5 mpg average, so it's not far off, the 1.6 ought to be better. My car for reference - http://www.fuelly.com/car/alfa_romeo...lipze3k/668719

Re: Tipoff 1.6 diesel Station wagon

I have the Punto Evo also with the same 1.6 multijet, very similar car to @Eklipze3k ‘s Mito, slightly lighter than your tipo and I drive with roof bars and bike racks on all the time, but I’m still getting 49mpg on the computer and I have a very heavy foot and 170k miles on the clock so well worn.

Re: Tipoff 1.6 diesel Station wagon

It really depends what type of journey you do.

My 2018 1.6 diesel gives a regular 43MPG

I have a 9 mile each way commute with the odd 30 or 40 mile run, on a decent run it gives about 55MPG

I know that my drive type is not best for a diesel, but we're happy with it, it does the job. The Abarth we had before gave 32MPG, so we are better off.

The manufacturer figures are in a lab environment, as said before, try someone like Honest John's website for more realistic figures
