Quote from: 155 lover on June 21, 2011, 08:57:11 AMI had a 2001 147 TS for 2 years between 2007 and 2009. I didn't use hardly any oil but I suppose I was pretty meticulous in changing the oil every 5,000kms.
Quote from: Steve S on June 21, 2011, 02:09:21 PMI believe these engines use oil because of the engine, not the oil. My 147 has about the best service history you could imagine and it does use oil, about 1L every 2-3000km using Selenia racing. I am going to switch to 10/40 because Selenia racing is an unnecessary expense. My dad's Falcon will use 2L every 5000km and my brother in-laws corolla is about the same. There are many other engines that also have high oil consumption but they dont seem to get a reputation for it.
Quote from: L4OMEO on June 21, 2011, 02:18:49 PMMany Audi's are notorious for using oil. I had an Audi-owning friend who, when arriving at a servo, used to say "Fill 'er up .... and can you check the petrol too thanks".

QuotePowering the 147 is Alfa's 2.0-litre Twin Spark four, which uses twin counter-rotating balance shafts, a twin spark, 16-valve cylinder head and electro-hydraulic variable valve timing to pump out 110 kW at 6300 rpm and 181 Nm at 3800 rpm.
QuoteIntroduced at over $60,000 as a 2.0-litre four-cylinder only, the Spider was a big ask with 114kW arriving at 6000rpm to shift almost 1400kg
