Hola from Spain

Hello,

This is a very interesting site, I am very surprised with all the things I discover here...
I am from Spain where people are not concerned with ecomodding, only tunnig and more tunnig.

I have a 1998 1,9 TDI Skoda Octavia with 180.000 km with an average consumption of 5,5 l /100km
I've just made a easy grill block as my first ecomod.

Best wishes
Adios

Welcome - we are only few europeans here, but the number grow every week, which suggest to me, that focus on FE is growing among the European commuters.

Nice to see.

Hello, and welcome to EcoModder
5.5l/100km is quite good, even for a turbodiesel. I understand this is with ecodriving techniques? If you need help perfecting your hypermiling skills, there is lots of info here, or just ask. We're always willing to help

What part of Spain are you from? I've been to Barcelona (they claim they are not part of Spain ), and hiked in the Sierra Nevadas with my Wife 1.5 years ago. We loved Granada

covarxi -

Welcome to EM! My favorite slot car is my NINCO Fiat Punto!



I see that the Škoda Octavia is built on the same platform as the Seat Leon/VW Golf. Very nice :

Hi, I come from Castellon (300km from Barcelona lying the mediterranean coast) and I live in Tarragona (100km from Barcelona lying the mediterranean coast)
Very nice place to live (except from politicians)

Catalan region has more industry, population and money than the rest of Spain (as another region in the north, Euskal Herria, Basque country) and people in those regions think they are supporting the rest of Spain.

Yes, skoda octavia, wv golf + bora, seat leon + altea, audi A3 are the same car except the shell. And there are a lot of forums about them, but not concerned with FE as this site.

Nice to see
PS- sorry, my english is very weak

Maybe, next to the French subforum, there should be a Spanich one?
