Fuel Consumption

Hey boyz, was wondering what sorta milage u get outta yer cars.. my EB1 3.9L MPI does 8.3 Km/L or 12.05 L/100kms and thats mainly highway cycle... this seems excessive too me.

My trip computer says 12.7L/100km. It used to be in the low 13s when I was driving in all conditions, now about 85-90% of my driving is high speed highway stuff. I get around at least 600kms to the tank these days, my record was 625kms just the other week! And remember I have an LTD, at least 200kg heavier than the rest of you.

fuel consumption


No I'll put it better than that. Open road good, round 8 to 9 litres per 100 in a EB2 4.0 auto extractors and cam.

Town....well that's another story. Effing useless.

On the flat around 12-14. Any hilly driving 13-17.

I dunno about these litres per 100k's and all that shit, because I don't have a trip computer, and although i could work it out, it wouldn't be very accurate but basically I get off a full tank, around 550k's per tank, with a CPI, 3speed. It's basically all highway runs, but I'm no grandpa when it comes to speed..

So basically, i was pretty happy with the mileage I get.
