jiwawa That looks interesting LT. What mpg did you get before. Can that sort of thing be fitted to an automatic?

LT Man My 130hp Fiat has had this box plugged in http://www.energy-tuning.co.uk/tuningbox.php and now does avg of 32mpg and i am at 3850 kg and weight is always maxed out
Also I now never have to drop a gear on the french tolls and main roads going up the hills at 60mph

I would say 2.3 will be fine

Sprinta Just to add my twopennorth. I have a 2.3 with the 130 output. I've subsequently had it remapped to 160 and it has transformed the driveability, its smoother, quicker to pick up, and is marginally more economical over the past 10,000 miles.

I suspect there will be a slight drop in perceived power for euro6 engines compared to euro5, as there was for euro5 compared to euro4.
Well the thread seems to have be resurrected so to update I did buy new and I chose a euro6 150bhp model. The 150 engine is in my opinion very good and out performs the euro 5 130bhp I had in all aspects. My advise for what it is worth is go for the 150 if there is a choice.

weldted I notice at the nec some vans water tanks had a drain valve you turn part way to drain all but the last 20 or so litres or all the way to drain completely. So to reduce weight when travelling but enough for a cup of tea.

All you say is correct, but renewing at 70, which everyone has to do, without C1 still requires a declration on the form that one is fit to drive .

I think you are wise to decide to keep the C1 - you need Forms D2 (Application for renewal) and D4 (Medical form)

Without renewal, the date of expiry, displayed on the licence, makes it invalid - I then do not have a valid licence, which is a requirement in any country.
