I filled up last Sunday night with BP ultimate in Heathmont . I've done 267k , and it tells me I have a range of 192 to go . All city and suburbs driving , taking it to 5 every now and then . When I filled it up , it showed a range of 368.
I noticed the overall fuel milage is now sitting on a flat 20L per 100k ( down from 23.5 )
Not too shabby for an BA XR8 .

xr6t's

18 L/100km sounds about right for city/heayfoot driving ... how many k's on the clock ? ... I heard someone say that the first 4000km it has been programmed to run rich ... maybe it was a rumour ...

I'm getting about 520km out of tank ...... it's a ute

Add k's travelled to dte, which is 267+192=459kM per 68litres. This equates to 68/459 x 100=14.8lper100k's. If your avg fuel metre was reset when you filled up it would be very close to this, depending on how you last drove the car because it takes a while to while to average out the calcs.

I have found my trip, range, and avg fuel economy computer very accurate, but don't forget to reset each time you fill up.

I'm actually very surprised at the economy in my turbo ute. Im getting about 14+ litres per 100ks, which is over 550 ks for a ute.

The last few tanks , i've been giving it a hard time , but I always reset my tripmeter. I decided not to go too beserk on this tank , and see where it gets me. Looking good so far. When I take a trip up to Echuca in the next few weeks , 1 tank looks like it will be more than enough .

BTW Doesnt the average L/100 relate to the overall milage of car . I didn't think you could reset it .

Well there you go . Learn something new everyday. Just went to shops and resest the average L/100 beforehand.

20 flat! Gee boy, you must be given yours a hard time. Mine shows about 17L/100Km now. I never even got that while I was bedding it in!

I done a short/long distance trip in my XR8 the other week. From what I calculated back, it is theoreticly possible to get anywere between 550 -750 out of a tank. I know it's a big gap, but I didn't fill up before I left and was giving it hell the day before.

I'm averaging 15 flat for my 8. And I'm not shy with it either. I'm usually getting ~400-450 from a tank..
