  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys I have a 2008 1.9 ttid Sport Kombi (180BHP) with 199k on the clock. It's in good condition and I try and drive at a conservative speed most of the time plus I use a decent fuel BP Ultimate Diesel. Most of my driving is in the city so my fuel economy is not so good, however I do take the...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I'm new to Saabscene and this is my first post. This is going to be along one , so be patient and thanks in advance for any advice. I'm driving an 07, 93 1.9 Tid (120bh) 160k miles but with a full comprehensive service history. Bought in September 2014. I recently noticed a small...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 150 TiD and on my commute to work (20 miles or so, 12 of those are Motorway), I am getting just over 40 mpg. It is not a lot of stop start at the times I travel and I am going a max of 75-80 on the motorway, as well as not thrashing it through the gears. I have noticed that the Temp...

    Any evidence of genuine ( i.e not what the SID says) gains in economy from a retune and is this just from software or is it from removing the DPF and EGR? I've looked at Hirsch and Maptun but they don't claim any mpg gains but most 'indy' diesel tuners make these claims.
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, I am considering buying either a 93 Sportwagon Aero in either a 2.0T or 2.8 V6. Book figures for the mpg seem to be nearly the same for both. Can anyone give me some realistic mpg figures (when driven sensibly!) and how many miles I should expect from a full tank? I mainly do 'round...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello knowledgeable and helpful people :) I know the topic has been discussed but I can't find anything that will directly answer the question, so my apologies if I've missed something... I've had my 9-3 rag-top 1.8t for a couple of weeks now, and for the most part, I love it! I don't love the...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    For some reason, on most journeys, at the beginning the SID reports really bad fuel economy - i.e. low 20's mpg town and barely 30mpg on the motorway (I've done several resets of the SID during this time and no change...) and then, suddenly after approx 10-15mins of driving the MPG climbs to...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've seen various posts about fuel economy for the diesels and I am wondering why - My previous car VW Bora TDI PD 150 02 Plate - 150bhp - 236lbs ft/tq - 1442kg - 146g/km Co2 - could manage at worst 51mpg - at best 56mpg on the same journey, to and from work, mostly A roads, some B - about a...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The fuel economy on my 02 9-5 Aero auto (96k miles) has gradually got noticeably worse over the last 2 years. The car goes like the wind as ever. Could this be due to the airflow sensor needs replacing? Any other ideas? Thanks
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I would be grateful for any advice as to what may be causing my fuel economy to be gradually getting worse. I have had my car ( 2005 9-3 tid 120 bhp ) for 6 months now. It had 98000 miles when I got it. It has now got 106000. When I 1st took delivery it was showing 49MPG. I am driving, exactly...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all I have a Saab 9-3 Aero Convertible 2004 (Auto). A fantastic car, but for the fact that the roof gave up yesterday! The roof goes up halfway, then stops at the same place each time and the display says to contact service. All looks good in terms of hydraulics, and the frame, so I think...

    Hello all. Picked up my classic 900 Turbo from Economy Saab in Bristol on Sunday. The car is fantastic!! I love it. Special mention to Steve at Economy Saab who sorted a few little niggles that I wanted done and provided great customer service. Hope I spend more time on the road than off it!!

    For as long as I can remember, I've filled up almost exclusively with Shell V Power. However, as my local station has recently been closed for refurbishment, I decided to give Tesco Momentum a go. After 3 tankfuls, on my -5 Aero auto estate, I reckon I'm seeing a consistent improvement of...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello Everyone, The previous idling problem on my Carlsson has been resolved but this morning I noticed something peculiar with the Economy meter in the dash. It appears to be working the exact opposite to what you would expect!! I really had not taken much notice of it up till now being...
  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi guys I recently have bought a 1998 2.0S 9-3 Convertible & have been very disappointed with the fuel economy. I was only getting about 27.5 MPG on a normal commute into Cambridge, whilst driving it very gently, whereas ten years ago I had a Cavalier GSI & got 29.7mpg whilst driving it like it...
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I recently started measuring how many miles a tank i get, and even though the SID displays that i average about 21.0 mpg with highway/city, i only get about 265 miles per tank on odometer from full to empty (16.4 gallons) which would mean that the average mpg is 16.1 and not 21.0. I have no idea...

    What's the best economy you've had on a run? Also, what's your overall average? If enough people enter their figures, we'll hopefully get a realistic picture of fuel economy for the 2.2TiD...
