Well, I have a Fairmont and before my last fill up I did 520 kms out of it. Mind you, those 520 kms was done with all grand prix traffic light starts , a single drive at the maximum speed limited for a few minutes and a few hard freeway entrances.

That's not too bad if you ask me.

The average petrol use is about 13.3 litres/100km before I filled up and resetted the values.

On the highway/freeway it's about 8 litres/100km sitting on 100km/h exactly. That figure was attained from the instant fuel usage meter.

Hmmm my AU is nowhere near as good as any of these, even MADNC's 5 litre, and I drive like a grandpa, under 3000rpm always.

Methinks something is Awry

Some of you guy's have some serious problems with fuel economy. My AU I6 gets around 650-700km in the city, my brothers EF gets around 600km, and even my modified XR8 gets 450km driven fairly hard.
