Re: BA fuel consumption

You have to be kidding, your complaining about the fuel economy on a XR6.. Mate if your worried about the cost fuel and the economy of your car, then i suggest you sell your XR6 and buy a Toyota Prias...... or a ride a bike

Happy motoring

Re: BA fuel consumption

turn the engine off when going downhill>>>>>>????? lol

but seriously.

extractors and an edit will both help fuel consumption. but both will cost you a pretty penny and take a while to break even. (but the extra power is fun)

Harvest Green, Lowered with Kings springs and Koni shocks, 18" GT-P mag wheels, XR front bar headlights and grill, XR rear spoiler, Fairmont Bootlid trim, XR6T snorkle, Typhoon second CAI, K&N filter, Pacemaker extractors with Herrod cat back, 3.73 LSD & CAPA FLASH with custom tune.
