Original, stock (my opinion stuffed) ED XR8 5.0 - 12.4L/100kms

Rebuilt 170rwkw 5.0 - 12.3L/100kms

Stroker 5.6...... Don't know yet really... so far about 14.5L/100kms, but have only done about 1500kms including run in.

Re: FUEL ECONOMY FROM YOUR V8's

I haven't done a big country run in my car yet, but normally, highway travelling at 120-ish the trip comp averages about 8.8-9.4 l/100km.

Around town it varies a lot, but normal driving gets about 420km to a tank

Re: FUEL ECONOMY FROM YOUR V8's

The best I got on the open road was close to 30mpg which ended up being around 650k's.

City driving I get about the same as aaron. 420-450ish depending on if I'm racing somebody at the time.

Re: FUEL ECONOMY FROM YOUR V8's

Around town is 450km to 500km to the tank, country is around 800km mark. The country run was in both the NC and a EB 5L. Seems a bit higher then everyone else, but this was averaging 120km during the night.

Re: FUEL ECONOMY FROM YOUR V8's

With the current tune, I can *JUST* get 600km out of a tank if I seriously hold back on a long trip. Normally, about 350-400km per tank for mixed mode driving.

She's a lot thirstier now with the bigger injectors / MAF / EL GT ECU, but the improvement is well worth any increase in consumption!

I dare say a Unichip and a PROFESSIONAL tune would no doubt improve economy quite a bit!
