Re: 4.1 250 XFLOW Fuel Economy

Dont trust the stupid gauge. On my EL, I get 400 on the first half of a tank, and then 100 on the last half!!!

I reckon you'd be laughing if you managed another 150.

whats the Range KM left on the trip computer?? In my XF Ghia experience the first half of the gauge is more like 3/4 of a tank. It will probably drop like a stone now!!!

Should have also asked if that was city driving or if it was ALL highway driving at a constant speed.

Re: 4.1 250 XFLOW Fuel Economy

I get about 350km to a tank with mixed driving. My xf s pack has a digital tank readout with big bars then small bars, then two red bars, empty. Is this like ghias?

Like most said above the top half goes slow then DROPS after halfway mark quickly.
My car doesnt have an 80L tank, more like 66 i think.

Yes, that's the same as a ghia dash. My old XF EFI does around 250km to a tank 80 litres. I think it is because how it is tuned, and has different injectors. It absolutely hammed on petrol. :D

Re: 4.1 250 XFLOW Fuel Economy

I also find that the fuel guage stays full for quite some time, and then suddenly drops like a rocket after 1/2 way, must be the electronic sender that they use. I get about 400-500klms out of 60 litres from my 4.1, but its a fresh rebuild as well as the carby too. The auto sure could benefit from a extra gear! :)

Re: 4.1 250 XFLOW Fuel Economy

With my XE wagon on straight gas i get between sixteen and eighteen litres per hundred kays depending on how good i'm being. It has a sixty two litre tank, so theoretically i should get three hundred kays between fills, never tried though coz running outta gas is a whole lot more of a problem than running outa petrol.

Cheers,
Neil
