XF 351 Ute Vs 2001 SR2, Who won ?

my mate has a (stock std) 351 Clevo in his XF ute with a 3 speed. He said he would be curious to see how it goes against our 2001 XR8.
But i was in our SR2 behind and i pulled out on the highway up here, and he nailed it and i gave the SR2 hell, i actually pulled up beside him, and it was neck and neck to 170kph. After this feat, he has decided not to try the XR8 until he does some work to his motor.

What sort of mileage do you get in town and on the HWY in the SR2 being a 2 litr, I would assume it would be good on fuel, just would like to know from someone who own's one,cheer's.

i am probably not the best example, as i do tend to strap it abit. but around town i get approx 500kms to 45 litres. which in my books is great !! i havent actually had it on the highway for more than 15 kms so dont know the hwy figures but i would imagine its good.
and its bog stock, other than a 2" sports system.
