Re: Punto Twinair MPG

The twinair loves revs. High mpg comes with revs by torque max = 2000.

Re: Punto Twinair MPG

Is it just me or does anyone else think that they have been miss sold this new Twinair engine by Fiat?

I have just passed the 6000 miles mark in mine and drive on the motorways mostly and the vehicle was sold to me to do between 60 - 70 mpg. I am currently getting the low 40s and that is sat at 65/70mph with the ECO button on.
I part exchanged a 2litre diesel Focus for the Twinair which did about 50mpg on the same journey. (wish i never bothered)

I have been in touch with Fiat about this and currently dealing with Trading Standards about it all as i believe Fiat and any other manufactures for that matter shouldn't advertise an mpg like this. Fiat state that they test drive one vehicle in "perfect" conditions ie road/weather etc and then they get this wonderful mpg that us users are never going to achieve even more so in the UK with our wonderful pothole free roads.

Just wondering how many others are in this situation and agree that they feel ripped off??

Re: Punto Twinair MPG

Hi,
I hear they are still "tight" engines at that mileage.. considering doing the old trick of mineral oil for the 1st 500 miles to let it bed-in,

Re: Punto Twinair MPG

I see you've sussed how to start the new thread,
LOTS of people are commenting on how tight the engines are past 6,000 miles,

just wondered how many RPM your indicated 68mph is in your vehicle ?,

also out of interest.. how accurate is the onboard computer against your own calculations?,
Thanks,
Charlie

Re: Punto Twinair MPG

I have heard time and time again that the twin air does not live up to its fuel economy claims regardless of how many miles it has under its belt

I also have a inkling that in the future the technology risks being a money pit i still believe the best fiat engine for the money is the 1.3 multijet.

It's been sitting at just under 3000 at 65mph and just over. The salesman stated that it would match the multi jet and work out cheaper as unleaded cost less than diesel!! Wish I could have seen his face when the Eco USB figures were shown to him. Thought it was too good to be true. Well and truly stitched up.
It's a shame Fiat still think it's the best engine since sliced bread!!

Re: Punto Twinair MPG

Trying sitting at 50 mph and see how much of a difference that makes... sitting at 70mph on the motorway isn't going to give you great mpg. I sit at 50-60 in my sporting and I get about 35-38 mpg.

Just out of interest - how do I average 35mpg when I'm consistently over 8*mph on the motorway in my Sporting if you get that when only doing 50-60?

this won't help, but at least you're not alone, look at the 500 0.9 results.

It's mainly short journeys and rush hour traffic along one of glasgows busiest roads, that and just short journeys here and there, I don't do long journeys so that will be why
