Hi everyone,I picked up my new 208 v.t.i on Friday but forgot to ask what is the best way to run the engine in.
Has anybody got any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Hi, I believe the best way is to drive sensibly without harsh acceleration or excessive engine speed and most importantly not to let the engine labour in toohigh a gear at low revs. do this for the first few hundred miles and the engine will definitley benefit fom it.

Id say no harsh acceleration and dont go over 4000 revs for the first thousand miles. Thats what ive done anyhow. Dont leave your engine ticking over for ages neither. Not sure at how long before it wont happen but you can glaze the cylinder bores

Thanks for that, I have not gone over 3000 revs keeping to speed limits,staying to the left hand lane on the motorway and staying at a constant speed of 58-60 hope that will be ok.
I thought the fuel consumption would have been a bit better.
I have read on the Internet that new cars use a bit more fuel while running in,what are your thoughts on this.
