Fueling a Falcon
For a long time now, my dad has been trying to convince me not to get a Falcon. One of his major arguments is fueling the thing. We have a AUIII Falcon on LPG (its a taxi) and it uses around 26L/100km on average. I keep telling my dad its because its on LPG and its a run-down taxi and that a petrol car will use less (though petrol does cost more).
We asked a friend with an AU Series 1 Forte 4.0L Wagon who said it gets on average 10L/100km, usually around 14 - 12 in the city and 7 - 8 on the highway. I couldn't help but point & laugh at my dad when we heard this. I want to buy a 5.0 EF myself when I get my P's, my question is, are Falcons that expensive to run & what are your experiences with them?
