1.6 75bhp Berlingo van
#1
Good evening all,

I am new to the forum and am looking to purchase a used Berlingo van. Will be 2015 onwards with lowest mileage as possible. From looking the most seem to be the 75bhp version. 

Can anyone advise on any issues known that I should look out for and if the 75bhp version is suitable for mostly motorway journeys? Also has anyone considered or had theirs remapped for better performance amd efficiency. 

Any help would be appreciated. 

Dan

Welcome!

I'm not sure about the B9 engines but the earlier M59 75bhp is the same as the 90bhp with a different ECU map. No other differences AFAIK. The 110bhp versions have a bigger turbo & different injectors. Search for HDI tuning & send them an email for info.

The 75 is known as the L1 625

The 90 is know as the L1 850

This is the maximum payload they can carry, 625kg and 850kg respectively
Also the 75 has a terrible 0-60 where as the 90 is more car like with regards to this. Only disadvantage with the 90, due to the payload it is gross 2 tons and therefore you are restricted to 60 on dual carriageways and single lanes roads at 50mph.

I loved my L1 850, it generally had all the toys on it except heated mirrors which I found bizarre, however much prefer my K9 which has a one ton payload and is much better on fuel.

Just curious as I don't have a van but I thought all vans without side & rear windows had that restriction unless they are registered as 'car derived vans'? I think this is where the 2 tonnes limit comes into play, but the V5 must state car derived van for the higher speed limits.

It’s a grey area. 2 tons gross and you are certainly in that category. Otherwise it’s really down to the wording on the V5 and how it was registered. I’ve previously had “panel van” “LGV” and “lcv”

only the Blue Hdi have adblue - my 65 plate didn't but my 68 plate does - the 75 bhp version certainly doesn't.
