Question Fuel Consumption?!

hey guys,
just wondered what my fuel comsumption is like compared to everyone else.

i have a EBII GLi auto sedan with shell ULP and the car usually in ECONOMY mode

when the needle got down to 1/4 of a tank it read 369KM

so technically thats 492KM for a full tank (369 * (4/3))

i think thats really good, btw there are no engine mods

also how well can i trust the fuel needle because it actually stays above the top line for a very long time b4 it starts dipping! and from driving to the engine off or from just dailey driving i can see the needle going UP and DOWN!

just wanted your thoughts
thanks

Daniel

Re: Fuel Consumption?!

The distance anit bad, I have an EA falcon CFI and lately it has been gulping up the petrol.

Last week I got about 200 out of 45L

This doesn’t mean your car is good, it just means mine is really shit cos its running a bit rough

But I wish my car was as good as yours
