The deisel was 145 a liter and the car too roughly about 7 liters(or is it gallons??)


Every garage is the same, has them all running on fumes. Wouldn't worry about mpg until you fill it a few times and see what you get out of it.

As a petrol head I'd be telling you to go for the A4 over the diesel, much more fun to drive a petrol turbo!

I've got a Renault laguna 1.9DCI, not too heavy on the fuel at all. Red diesel is the only job too(or green, whatever colour it is down there)

Going to view a Fiat Stilo tomorrow providing it's still available. Anyone ever owned one ? Worth the hassle ? Do they give much trouble ?
Out of order

Only seeing this now, it's a 1.9 tdi, I actually thought it could be even more efficient but maybe I'm just being greedy, 50km for €15 is mental though!

soon as you buy a fiat it is worthless.

That's 272km, I thought it would be better but wasn't ever sure in the difference between a petrol and a diesel, for the same money I would get at least 500km, I won't ever be buying a petrol car again that's for sure.

A very rough guide but around 200miles per half tank would be fairly normal for 1.6 petrol
