How many Klm's on a full tank for a GT ?

Just wondering what distance can be covered on a full tank for a GT , say for country driving and likewise for city driving.
I still maintain that Ford should have put in a larger fuel tank to give the GT's a bigger range. any coments ?
Regards John

Re: How many Klm's on a full tank for a GT ?

I have averaged 16.516 l/100 km so far as a mix of city and freeway driving with a freeway best of 13.96 and a city worst of 19.95.

By my calculations (leaving 3 litres in the tank) that's a low of 325 km and a high of 465 km from a tank.

Cheers
Russ

So the GT has a 65 litre tank?

Sounds like an attempt by Ford to minimise weight.

Another conspiracy theory is it? I am pretty sure AU had the same fuel capacity.

So did EF, El etc - they are all Fords, all Falcons, and (like it or not) all related. Why do some people think that the BA is not related to any previous falcon ever built?

There is no conspiracy, it is called minimising R&D costs, (or maximising the ammortisation over a larger volume of the same component). They will probably still give it a BA part number though, and charge you twice as much as the similar EF item! Sorry to get off track slightly, but BA 'snobs' give me the sh!ts.

The last few Falcons I have owned all have had 68l tanks. This can be a pain when I am travelling in the bush as 98RON or PULP tend to be a bit rare.
I solved the problem with 3x 20l plastic jerry cans from the local 4WD shop.
Works great :s6:
