What MPG are you getting

The only slight disappointment in my 280bhp Alfa is I am getting no where near the MPG quoted on the Alfa website.
My Best on a run is 23.8 and I am averaging 22.00
I am in UK so this is based on Imperial Galloons

I was getting 14 MPG in US gallons, but a few days later my fuel pump failed (should be getting it back today!) so there may have been additional contributing factors to my poor MPG.

Also, FWIW, I saw a thread somewhere else where they Dyno tested the engine, and found it making 285 HP at the wheels, so perhaps some worse than expected fuel economy is not a bad thing

So far 24 in mixed driving, including traffic (conservative driving for break-in period). Best result will be in a few thousand miles. The trick is staying out of that turbo unless its needed and, of course, selective use of 'Dynamic' setting/driving. Direct injection, 8 speed, stop/start, etc. should make a difference. Interesting to see how it plays out.

Haven't gotten my Ti Sport back yet, they didn't have the correct tools to remove the fuel pump until end of the day Friday, but I've been driving a Stelvio Sport (Non-Ti) dealer loaner since Friday, put 175 miles on over the weekend and averaged 21.8 MPG (US) so far. I have driven the loaner with essentially the same driving style as normal (except it's the Non-Ti so it's got the smaller width tires with taller sidewalls, and also lacks the adaptive suspension, so it doesn't corner nearly as well).

First trip to DC today, about 400 miles round trip-- average to date mixed driving from the first mile is showing 28 MPG (running 93 octane). Frankly I'm very impressed! I was always told it takes about 5000 miles for a new engine to seat and loosen up. Very satisfied.
