The most prolific Eco Engine
 
I've just been thinking... whilst stuck in traffic. There is one engine which crosses numerous manufacturers and delivers great economy.

The Little Fiat 1.3 multijet!

it slots into:

Fiat 500
Fiat Panda
Fiat Punto
Fiat Grande Punto
Fiat Qubo
Fiat Doblo
Fiat Sedici
Fiat Albea
Fiat Idea
Fiat Linea
Fiat Fiorino
Fiat Qubo
Fiat Strada
Vauxhall/Opel Agila
Vauxhall/Opel Astra
Vauxhall/Opel Corsa
Vauxhall/Opel Eco speedster
Vauxhall/Opel Combo
Vauxhall/Opel Meriva
Vauxhall/Opel Tigra TwinTop
Suzuki swift
Suzuki splash
Suzuki SX4
Suzuki Ignis
Suzuki Wagon R+
Alfa Romeo MiTo
Ford Ka (2008- )
Lancia Musa
Lancia Ypsilon
TATA Indica Vista
TATA Indigo Manza

SO it covers both Ford and GM :eek:

anyone think an engine thats been in more than 31cars over 7 manufacturers that produce the figures this can???

The 1.6 HDi is in even more cars:
  • CitroŽn
  • Peugeot
  • Ford (TDCi)
  • Volvo
  • Suzuki
  • Mini Cooper D
  • Mazda
According to Wikipedia.

When I read the title of this thread i thought it was about GM's 3-cylinder 12v 1.0 liter EcoTec engine.

7 manufacturers.... 26 cars

there must be another one out there!

that's not really an engine, more a way of artificially boosting headgasket sales:)

Fair point about the hdi lumps..
:)
As for the vw pd-they were used in the mk4 transporter too

My Grandma has a Corsa C with one of those. It takes a while to get used to when switching over from my turbodiesel, but I like it anyway. I've heard it's called a petrol-powered sewing machine;)

Peugeot 1007, 3008 and 5008, Partner and Expert vans;
Citroen Jumpy ;
Mini Countryman ;
Ford Grand Cmax ;
Mazda 5 (in early 2011)

It's actually in 2 different generations (not facelifts) of the C4 and C5, Ford Focus, Cmax.

In 2-valve / cylinder form it'll also appear in the Volvo S60/V60.
