Well I can't afford keeping up this price, well I can but I sure don't want to. If this keeps up I may have to change to a 4 cyl ( )

so, what could be wrong? the coolant temp sensor? but would that make it way rich that it runs that bad?
any other suggestions??

Im due for an oil change so Im gonna do one on the weekend if I get the chance..

I think we got about 11L/100 km recently coming down from NSW in my 3.9 CFI 5 speed. It's now MPI and I'm yet to test it.

Yours seems a little extreme. It's as much as a Tickford 5.6 donk likes to drink. Don't have a clue as to why it would be though.

Get a full service, injectors cleaned, new fuel filter, etc...

My old EB went from 300kms around town to 500kms around town. More power too!

'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!

I think, from memory, last time I looked I was getting around 10 to 12 litres per 100 Kms from my 5.0L EBII. Keep in mind however that this is dependant on driving habits and is recalculated by the trip computer, so changes from time to time.
