XH XR6 fuel milage

What type of milage do people get out of their XH utes? I'm getting about 12.8l/100km out of my XH XR6 through normal driving, does this seem right? Car is completely stock.

Re: XH XR6 fuel milage

I get around 350 around town and 450 on the freeway for 55L.

Running an XR6 engine, 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust and pacemakers. Its running fairly rich/has a problem so I know it can be improved greatly.

I'm using the standard fuel pressure regulator. With the XR on there managed 300 odd out of the 55l.
