My first Berlingo
#1
Like to say hello and thanks for the oportunity to join the forum, I have just picked up a new berlingo van, three cylinder petrol enterprise spec, its a big change for me as I previously had two ford rangers before this little beauty.
I have owned it for five days and have 700 miles on the clock, have to say the first couple of days were a big learning curve and thought I might have made a mistake....
But now, Im loving it, the engine is almost silent, if you give it some revs, a very pleasant growl is heard, after some faffing about, got the screen to pair with my android phone, and getting used to the electric handbrake.
Pleased to be on board
Kind regards
Nick

It'll be interesting to see how you get on with the petrol - what are you getting mpg and whats it like with a load in the back?

I am 10 months in with my 1.6 diesel and apart from a few niggles all seems well - currently averaging about 58 to the gallon and just rolling up to 23,000 miles.

I get roughly 500 miles from a tank full, not looked up tank capacity yet, but easy to calculate mpg.... just loaded van for work, will let you know how it performs, although on a steepish hill you do lose power, this was expected, just change up and keep the revs steady and off she goes!

That’s not bad at all - I see around 520-530 miles before the light comes on but would see the thick end of 600 miles to a tank if I ran it right down.

Press the end of the wiper stalk - it’ll bring up your mpg on the dash display between the dials.
