Fuel Consumption

Hey guys,
Well I have just managed to check out how many K's I get out of the old EA since thr T5 was put in.

I filled up before the CAA cruise. It was dead empty and took 63L of LPG. I have just ran the LPG tank dry and managed 437km. It was a combination of freeway, highway and flat out back street driving. I am very happy with the result.

Re: fuel consumption

Hard acceleration around the city used to get about 270km, but driving as listed in my above post would never aget over 300-350km.

Re: fuel consumption

That's city (stop/start) driving by the way. I could probably stretch it to 400km's but not much more at all.

Way to go BC



437k's on that much lpg is none too shabby BC. I used to get 330-350 out of my 63 litres with the old 3 speed and mainly highway driving with some city. I finally re-connected my gas system last week and put it on the mechanic's analyser. I am going for a country run for the long weekend (tonight) over here and am looking forward to seeing what the 4spd auto/4.0 ltr motor has done to the economy on the gas - be interesting to see. I will be stoked if I can get the gas to run out to 420 to 450 on a tank.

Nuff said,

M.......

Re: Way to go BC

I'd just like to add that my chronic fuel consumption problems were a result of a faulty thermostat. A bit of a chain reaction, really...
