Fuel economy

With my AU 2 XR8 I have gotten:

15.7l/100km with what ever fuel the dealer put in and the old worn out sparkplug leads.

13.8l/100km with mobile 8000 and worn leads

12.4l/100km with mobil 8000 and new leads but I went for a mountain drive.

11.7/100km with mobil 8000 and new leads.

I spend about 50% on the free way and 50% on 60 and 80 km main roads.

Re: Fuel economy

5 km per litre in a daily driven manual v6. not good, but it is worth it :-)
