Question How many Kilometers per Tank?

I'm getting between 400-450 k's out of a full tank in my EF Fairmont Ghia 95'. Is that normal? I always run it on Optimax as that gave me the most k's in my XF Fairmont Ghia 85'. I don't race everywhere either, I pretty much drive like a grandpa 99% of the time hehe.

Hi Spud - welcome to ford forums!

Re: How many Kilometers per Tank?

Sounds about right to me.
Depending on traffic, conditions and how I feel like driving I can get anywhere from 350-650kms out of a tank. Peak hour traffic mixed with lots of red line really does kill my economy

Cheers EBXR! The site is awesome.
Yeh I only really drive to work which is only 5 mins away so I guess that wouldn't help much. I actually had a flat battery no long ago and I think it was due to so many 5 min trips

Re: How many Kilometers per Tank?

yeah most of my travel is 5min trips up 10deg hills. This combined with a 110LSA cam gets me 320km MAX from a tank of synergy 8000.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Actually after paying $1.21 a litre for petrol the other day I did give it some more serious thought.
