EFI 302 Windsor Fuel Economy...

Hey Guys,

Just wondering what sort of Fuel Economy is expected from a EFI 302 Windsor (This case in a ED).

Around 16-20L Per 100 sound Normal?

Cheers

Extreme

Up too 30 MPG or 10 per 100 is not unobtainable.

Never seen 10l/100kms, thats 700kms out of a tank. Not impossible but unlikely unless all country driving but even I find the 5L more thirsty than that. 14-20l/100kms is probably a good figure to work on depending on how you drive..

Re: EFI 302 Windsor Fuel Economy...

Around town I get anything from 14.8 to 16.5l/100kms - when everything is 'maintained' I usually sit on about 15.5l/100kms. Highway only is 11 to 12l/100kms.

Re: EFI 302 Windsor Fuel Economy...

Depends on diff ratios a lot too I've found. With the 3.23 I got average 14L/100km if I remember correctly, even less. Now I get 15-16L per 100km.. Maybe that's just my driving now.

Re: EFI 302 Windsor Fuel Economy...

When my engine was only 5lt (Stock) I had an average consumption of 12.5L/100km. This consisted of 80% highway (Geelong to Port Melb) and 20% city.
This is based on a total of 14000km.

Rebuilt performance 5lt (170rwkw) I had an average consumption of 12.35L/100km. This consisted of 80% highway (Geelong to Port Melb) and 20% city/giving it s&%t.
(including run in period) This is based on a total of 14500km.

Since it's now a 5.6lt I now have an average of 14.6L/100km, consisting of about 50% highway (Geelong to Port Melb) and 50% city/giving it s&%t/Calder park drags....etc
(including run in period) This is based on a total of 4200Km.

Re: EFI 302 Windsor Fuel Economy...

Std I could drive to Albury easy on a tank.In fact the guage showed just under 1/4...Thats filling up at Cambeltown to Baronia Melbourne.
Now driven hard it would nearly burn up a tank from Penrith to Cambeltown...Nearly!!!
But driven EASY fuel consumption is o/k..Lattley I have driven from Penrith to Toukley return on 1/2 tank towing trailer..The nut behind the wheel makes the difference in fuel consumption...Infact when mine was std a friend who had an ED 6 used more fuel than I did on a trip to Snowies..

Re: EFI 302 Windsor Fuel Economy...

Mine (EL Ghia 5.0 auto) averages about 14.4 around town. On last Sundays GOR cruise with the Eseries club I racked up 490 K's for the day at an average of 11.1L/100K. The fuel was Mobil Synergy 8000.
