Did you miss me!?

Jesus, what a time i've had of it!

First this forum changes, i can't get my password to work.... and thats the easy bit!

My marriage is in tatters, and my Stilo has 10,000 miles on it already!

**Yeah thats right, a 1.2 Stilo used less than quarter of a tank, 180miles covered, 47.4mpg, i need to save as much cash as possible right now, so i was driving a bit like Miss Daisy was in the back seat!**

Re: Did you miss me!?

Good to see your back mate , sorry to hear things ain't going your way tho!

Thought about you recently as I'm currently driving round in a 1.4 active courtesy car Its ok actually, just wish it had aircon in the heat we had this weekend. Driving it as I drive my JTD and am averaging around 39mpg. (currently off uni so its all short runs around town, been averaging around 48mpg in the JTD) so thats not bad at all.

Miss the grunt mind on the open road when it comes to overtaking

Best of luck with everything anyway, esp your marriage

What you won't have missed!

I thought the Stilo was 12,000 mile service intervals! My Stilo seems to want to give me about an extra 500 miles! Is this 'cos i'm such a genteel driver!

Also, after some spanking of my car, been a tought few weeks, i've been back to driving normal, and since the spanking my fuel economy has improved!

Covered 300 miles roughly, in my day to day, stop start, back road and duel carriageway driving i'm averaging 46.5mpg! Not bad considering book combined is 44.8.

Yeah, got the same interval showing on the stilo here, think its the extra leway fiat give to get it serviced intime to keep the warrenty.

I had a trip to glasgow and back including some driving around the glasgow area a couple of months back, found the 1.2 brava returned 47mpg as well, now the book says 42mpg for combined

Welcome back anyways, hope things sort themselfs out for you
