    11mpg on a abarthh

    Hi guys,

    as some might know just got a abarth. It already had a emu madness on it, so i turn it off just to see the mpg. Its speniding 11mpg. I dont really care how much it spends i just want to know if the car is working well?

    i have driven it only in center city at rush hr. How normal is this?

    11 mpg???? That thing sure is running rich! Are you calculating it on a racetrack? Sounds like it drinks gas sitting still with the engine off. I was getting 28 mpg on the Dragon two weeks ago. You might want to have that thing checked out...
    Iím not a Mopar guy...Iím a FCA guy...Iím so happy Fiat took Chrysler under its wing! With that said I have a good collection of FCA cars.

    You need to actually calculate the mileage manually and not go by the trip computer. Also a little info about your car will make it easier to get replies. Putting your car info in your signature is the best way to achieve this.

    Hi their Fiat500USA

    I just did my signature hope this helps out. Would really want to know the usual faults that make a car spend so much gas. I just got back from my mechanic, he connected it to the computer all seemed fine. He told me he will further look in to it on Friday.

    A thought just before you spend $$$ on a mechanic is to actually calculate your mpg. Don't go by the trip computer, do it manually. Fill Up, stop filling when the pump turns off, mark your mileage, and drive. Go back to the same pump at the same time of day and stop filling when the pump turns off. Squeezing more into your tank is not good for for your cars EVAP system, and going back to the same pump and the same time of day will yield the most accurate results. You want accurate results so you aren't chasing a non-existent problem.

    You may also want to do a highway mileage test where you drive half a tank or more on the highway steady speed at legal limit with the cruise control on.

    The other thing to keep in mind is probably 90% of fuel economy comes down to driving technique and driving conditions. City driving is basically the stop light grand prix - first -second -stop. Keeping up with traffic and getting hard on the boost will kill gas mileage. Idling at a traffic light adds up, too, substantially.

    OK, so if your mileage still stinks. A few things that can affect fuel economy are:

    • Driving with the Sport button on.
    • Tires not inflated properly.
    • Engine oil wrong viscosity.
    • Overdue on oil change. Oil condition affects cars with variable valve timing.
    • Air filter old and dirty.
    • Engine tune. Make sure your spark plugs aren't overdue for a change. Cars with a tune or piggyback need plugs changed more often. Plugs also deteriorate as they get miles on them. Check your maintenance schedule.
    • A big thing is dragging brakes. Cars that sit around or have low miles are prone to have brakes that drag. You can check when you stop on a a very slight inclines to see if your car rolls easily when you take your foot off the brake.


    Let us know how you make out.

    Hello Mate,

    So i finally went and checked everything at different mechanics (i have a USA abarth and i live in Europe) so i think one figured it out:
    On a recent check i got a issue with my o2 sensor So my mechanic said that this is the error.

    He gave me a part number by: 68070 689AA however when im checking online (ebay) the vendor says this part is not compatible with my abarth (https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Alfa-Ro...8AAOSwtjxZixAv)

    Do you think this could be the issue? So is there any way site or something similar where i can put my chases number and possibly pull out this sensor?

    Also if someone has a a online vendor that sells them in Europe it would be awsome? (i have a US abarth in Europe)

    Assuming your o2 sensor has a problem, you should have a check engine (MIL) light and appropriate code for an out of range o2 sensor. If you don't have an MIL, then something else is going on here.

    I'm with Chris: Zero-out one of the trip odometers next time you fill up. Drive the car until it's under roughly half a tank (which if truly 11MPG shouldn't take long) fill it up again, then using the calculator app on your phone, divide number of gallons to fill the car with your miles traveled.

    My Ford F350 Crew Cab, Long Bed, V-10, pickup gets 11MPG towing a 20' flat bed trailer. If a little four banger is getting that sort of fuel economy, you should be seeing fuel running out of the exhaust.
