Fuel Consumption

Hey all..i was just wondering what sort of fuel milage you get from a full tank...

i seem to be getting about 500-600km from a full tank of fuel from an 88 EA S

i feel thats pretty good...considering my 4 cylinder Silivia only got 350-400km from a tank (60 Litres i think)

both cars i drove pretty hard...but the good old ford can take it...:)

Re: fuel

I do about 550km on a tank of premium in the LTD, it's a 4 spd MPFI by the way... I managed to get 625km from one tank once, but the surprising thing was that the first third of the tank was used on the great ocean road, with the thing packed 120% with luggage etc... Weird...

Re: fuel

I get around 500k's a tank, and most of my driving is on the highways, but I do push it everynow and then, so I guess for a 3 speed, CFI 500k's a tank is pretty good.

I noticed a slight increase in fuel consumption after I got my 2/5" exhaust. The increase wasn't much, but I lost around 20k's a tank I reckon.

Thanks,
Dave

Re: fuel

Dave, I think sports exhausts are supposed to reduce fuel usage. The only reason it wouldn't is if you drive the car harder now.

Re: fuel

Yeah maybe, I don't know if it's placebo, but I reckon, that after I put the exhaust in, I think I lost a little bit of power down low. So, maybe that's why I've got worse fuel consumption, because I have to push it harder.

Smile V8 economy

You work the average out since around Jan 2002 - its hard enough typing all this in ! REAL LIFE MEASURED economy (speedo/odo checked with GPS) 7/91 EB XR8 auto 3.27 diff and just under quarter of a million k's..... Its pretty obvious the difference between Sydney peak hour from western suburbs, and a bit of easy cruisy driving (above 60Km/h).....
16.6,13.8,17.5,16.3,12.7,15.7,15.7,10.5,11.3,10.7,10.1,13.6,17.3,15.0,14.4,14.4,15.4,14.8,14.3,12.1, 12.3,17.7,12.5,13.6
Oh yeah - Optimax or Caltex premium always (Both seem to work OK) Have installed the factory Trip Computer, and for the last two tanks has been .1 and .2 out from measured consumption - pretty accurate in other words !
(And yes, I do keep all the receipts....)
