Re: 780+ ks to tank

I had a similar experience, about 770 km's out of an AUII XR6 ute,Melbourne to Corowa and then back down to Violet town cutting across the back road to Bendigo and then back down to Melbourne,some spirited driving between Violet town and Bendigo! Had the pleasure of blasting past 3 Hyundais on a slow sight seeing crawl who high beamed me for overtaking them! Very pleased with the fuel consumption of the ute,wish I got the manual trans though,
Cheers

Re: 780+ ks to tank

i got well over 900km to a tank in my old AUII XLS ute.. manual, running normal fuel and no mods at all.

i had to go to Bendigo for work on thurs/fri sat on about 120km pretty much the whole way, avg fuel was 10L/100km!! after a few laps of bendigo on wed and thurs night and driving back to werribee, i got 750ks on 3/4 of a tank.

i thought that is awesome!

Re: 780+ ks to tank

Lostboy.

AVG was 10l/100km.

yet at times cruising around Bendigo i got 12-13-14L/100km.

coming home along the calder hwy, i got as low as 8.5L/100lm
and then again overtaking trucks getting up to 150+ it was reading 40L +


i found better fuel economy at 120km in fifth rather than 80 in fifth.
