This is bad....
I knew my EA was chewing through fuel but this is just getting rediculous. I filled up with 63ltrs of Mobil 8000 last Thursday at a whopping price of 98cpl. The purpose of this was to test how much I got out of a full tank cause I usually only ever keep it half full (so the car's lighter). Anyway, this morning I found myself back at the petrol station with a grand total of 369.8kms on the clock. I estimate I had around 5-8ltrs left in the tank (cause I ran it right down to get every last km out of it). Now, I'm not sure how all you guys go for fuel consumption but in my opinion, this is just shithouse! BTW, this was 'city' driving with about 3 drag races on Sunday.
What the hell is going on here? Will a simple tune-up increase fuel economy? A fair while ago I had the timing adjusted while on the dyno to suit 98RON fuel. Could it be that the timing has gone out of whack or something?
