Re: Megane 3 1.6 petrol owners
I changed down from a 2.2 dCi 150 BHP to a
1.6 Meg 2 111BHP on a run I was getting 46 MPG
Yes, I did have to tone down my driving style, when you need to overtake you will need to make a lot more use of the gearbox.
Since I don't do much mileage now, the items above didnt make a great deal of difference to me, however, one thing really annoyed me I found the 1.6 petrol really busy at 70 + MPH. Off the top of my head the diesel = 2000 RMP @ 70. The 1.6 = (3,500 RPM or very similar)
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
