BA fuel consumption

My BA XR6T is only 1000km old and is now returning an average of 14.7lt/100km. (19.3MPG for the oldies).

Anyone else have any figures to compare?

BTW the trip computer shows 15.7lt/100km

I was also going to post about fuel consumption figures. Our BA V8 Fairmont Ghia seems to be really thirsty. The trip computer tells me 15.8l/100km around the town. Our old Gen III used to do around 13.7l/100km.

richdave, my XR8 is showing 15.0 L/100km average after 900km of driving. It can and will get better though....once I don't have to give it a squirt evert 2 minutes to hear the V8 noise!
That's mixed around town and highway, with me speeding up/slowing down on the open road too.
