That's the thing, people who buy XR's don't want to drive around with a feather light touch on the accelerator. And fair enough too, it's why you buy a XR instead of an XT/Futura

Re: xr6 vs xr6t in fuel consumption

Welcome to the board...but please talk english

Not sure about the Turbo, but my brother-in-law's n/a with nearly 5000kms is averaging around 12.5 at the moment with a reasonable amount of peak hour traffic

Re: xr6 vs xr6t in fuel consumption

I have an XR8 ute and the average fuel consumption i get around town is 19.5l per 100 k's. I guess thats the price you pay for having a V8.
And yes if I didnt want to drive it hard i would buy an XT instead of an XR8.

Re: xr6 vs xr6t in fuel consumption

I have a 6 week old XR6T with about 4000k's . Running on Mobil premium it has averaged 12.2l per 100km over that period- country & town driving. Highway ( or wife driving...) usage is a reasonable 11.6l per 100km. Fanging around town or the twisty bits drops it back a bit but hey.. thats what its all about! My previous 5.7l Holden averaged about 12.6l/100k over its life of 140,000km country driving so I've no complaints- the Fords quicker & a better drive overall too!

XRT driven hard will drink like a fish ... power=fuel

no sense driving for ultimate performance in an XRT ... but sensible spirited driving will take you past 15L/100km easy ... I do 16L/100km but that is mountain driving with average speed of 45km/hr

cheers
