it costs me roughly $55 to fill the tank from reserve to full or maybe empty to full i can't remember, and that gets me a little over 400 kays, 0-100 is roughly 8.2 secs a few hundreths less with optimax/98 fuel... there is no accurate way unless i get one of them correvit thingys that street machine/wheels magazine use
or just drag yer mates magna sports VRX and keep up with him like i did
my CFI manual, 1989 series II falcon S, costs me roughly $55 to fill the tank from reserve to full or maybe empty to full i can't remember, and that gets me a little over 400 kays, 0-100 is roughly 8.2 secs a few hundreths less with optimax/98 fuel... there is no accurate way unless i get one of them correvit thingys that street machine/wheels magazine use, but its definately quicker than my 4-spd XD 351 i use to have, lacks towing balls though compared to the V8 or MPEFI
just drag yer mates magna sports VRX and keep up with him like i did
sh!t i clicked stop, i still posted two things, ah well......
to answer yer question, ea's should get roughly (my guess, ask jack travis for exact figures) 10L/100km on the highway and 12-3 litres per 100km of city drivin, depending on the size of the engine 3.3 or 3.9 with the 3 speed auto in yer 88 falcon, yer 0-100 time would be bout 11-12 seconds as a rough guide...
yeah i think you should give the ignition system a birthday - new plugs, leads, dizzy cap and rotor. 5 out of 5 EB-D falcons i have had anyhting to do with (i have had 2, my mates and another mates) have all had badly stuffed dizzy caps, the carbon tip had worn so much that it was not there any more, and the rotors were in pretty bad condition too.
so replace all that crap then check your base timing, i think you should see an improvement after doing that
