Hey.

What is the 140 hp Spider's fuel consumption in city? Official number says 8.5 lt.

Is it true?

With my experience 8.5 is the correct number.Out of the city from 6.8 to 7.4, on the highway (130-150 km/h) from 7.2 to 8.

8.5 litres per 100km is equivalent to 32.1 miles per UK gallon (36.7 miles per US gallon). I had been getting around 35 mpg (UK) or 29 mpg (US) on a mix of local roads and highways, so 7.8 l/100km, and had been rather disappointed to be honest, but maybe that's OK?

How much weight have you been putting on the gas pedal ? 7.8L compared to 8.5 is a marginal difference that'll really come down to driving habits I would think

I am getting 27 mpg but just broke 1000 miles on the car. I've been taking it easy and have not done any extended time at freeway. It will be interesting to see how it adjusts as the engine breaks-in. I'm looking forward to a short road trip to see how the efficiency improves.

On my drive today from Albuquerque, I stopped in Big Spring to fill up. I got 403.6 miles on 9.38 gallons, that's 43 miles per gallon. I had a very strong tailwind most of the way. From Big Spring to San Antonio, I only got 35 mpg, no tailwind and 80 mph speed limit on Interstate 10 between Junction and Kerrville.
