fuel consumption

hey guys, jus like to know what you think about the amount of gas my truck is using, has a steel tray back with maybe 200-300kg of work gear on it.
using pulp gas im getting approx 300km with 60L and being very cautious with the right foot thats 20L/100km do think this is good economy?
its a new 351 with a small cam, 600 vac sec, tri y extractors 2.5 single system and 3.5 rear gears

i know its a big amount of weight to move around but i was hoping to get a little bit further with 60L

how far can you guys get after a fill up

any opinions or tips for me

Is that around town or highway? If around town I think that's very good economy for an F100.

Yes. It'll find any issues you have. You'll most likely end up with more power and better fuel econ.

Re: fuel consumption

I'm running a tunnel rammed 351, twin 660 centre sqirt carbies, 650 hp, 3.9 diff. It uses about 20l/100km. My stock P6 LTD 351 was getting about 500 km's per tank which is about 12l/100km

Re: fuel consumption

Depends how you drive it, they are a very tempremental car. If you drove it easy, it was quite economical, but if you booted it everywhere, you could easiloy halve the economy.
