Puretech lifespan

Post by Stealth » Fri Sep 27, 2019 8:39 pm

I found a German article about Puretech engines, and it quotes a French source claiming that Peugeot issued the statement that a life span of a Puretech 110&130 is projected for 240.000 kilometers.

What do you think about, and what is your mileage so far?

Curiously, the 82 version is not mentioned, it looks like it might go a bit longer, if kept well.

Here is the German source for refference:

surely they'll just keep going as long as you replace bits along the way e.g. pistons etc?

Petrol engines don't last as long as diesel ones usually, but what's that milage based on. Doing daily short trips probably isn't that much less wear and tear as doing 50+ on a day with engines taking time to warm up to be less abrasive. After all if you do 10km a day, that's 90 years to rack up 240,000.

I wouldn't expect 1.2 engine to last long time, lot depends on how you drive your car even if very carefully, I would expect it to die at around 200k miles.

Don't buy 1.2 cars. Go for at least 1.6 if you want your engine to last.

So the engine is 3/4 of a 1.6 so it should do the same mileage🤔If you do UK average mileage then thats 240000 miles in 20years.
Really why is everyone getting excited about what it will do. Your going to need 3turbo's before you get there anyway.
It's not a very highly strung engine, red lines at 5,500 so not a screamer,just change oil every 6-8000 miles, filter every 16,000, throw in new plugs and belts as per service.
Or you could go old school and throw a new engine in when the current one packs up.
It's a bit like triggers broom👍
