Fuel Consumption

I don't know if this has been brought up in different thread but I found the fuel consumption figures in Motors PCOTY quite interesting.

XR8- 15.06 L/100km
SS- 18.0
TE50- 16.17
Clubsport R8-18.07
CV8- 18.26
GTS- 19.75
CSV- 16.86

It seems to be that the Windsor drinks about the same amount whether its being pushed hard or not whilst the LS1 can be quite econimical if driven that way but once you start driving hard it slurps the petrol like its going out of fashion (apart from the CSV).

For me it's 10L to 100km/h on average, with city/highway driving and abit of bootin.

The CSV uses a Motec system, rather than the shitty Holden computer....

The holden computer is very good it's just that the motec is better tuned for the car than holden's as Corsa is a smaller company and tune the cars better.

Can't believe they bagged the XR8 fuel consumption (only to be corrected by the Editor, thank you very friggin much!) when it is clearly the best on fuel of the V8s available. A whole 3l/100k's difference between it and the equivalent SS is a LOT!

Ah dreams ... I saw 13.309 l/100 km from my AUXR6VCT over 21,000 kms - 16.01 l/100 km from my AUTE50 and 19.55 l/100 km since the T was stroked to 5.7.
