Territory Fuel Economy

Just wondering what fuel economy people are getting out of their Territory's.

Mine is an AWD TS and has only done 400 k's (all city) but it struggles to get below 20l/100km...

Only it's first tank of fuel I know but things aren't looking promising as fuel heads over $1/l.

I've seen people post 15l/100km and I'm wondering if this is common or rare...

Re: Territory Fuel Economy

I'd say its too early to tell, give it to at least 3000km and if its still high then, mention it at the 3000km check up.

Re: Territory Fuel Economy

Mines a Ghia RWD and i'm getting 15L per 100, with about 80% driving around town. It gets 10L per 100 on the highway. Economy dropped a bit after it had done 5000k's.

Re: Territory Fuel Economy

I got a noticeable improvement in economy at two points in the engine run in phase --- first was at about 5000k's (about a litre per 100k's) and then another larger improvement at about 16-17'ks (about 2 litres per 100k's).

So from now I'm expecting no more than 14 litres/100k's in the city and better than 12 litres/100k's on the highway. And at those levels .... I'd be more than happy with and really what more can you expect? It is, in the end, a 2000 kg car and to keep costs down Ford is never going to use aluminium componentry or plastic panels to get weight savings.

Lordricey .... just enjoy the car my friend for a few thousand k's and dont worry about the fuel use when its so new .... when the engine beds in, I think you will be more than satisfied with the fuel economy.

Re: Territory Fuel Economy

My RWD Tx has done 500k and so far I have been pleasently surprised - I have stuck to urban roads (no peak hour stuff though) varying the speed a lot and plenty of stop/go at the traffic lights, computer shows average speed 40kph, average fuel consumption 12.7l per 100k.

Re: Territory Fuel Economy

I'm getting 14.8L/100 in city driving with my Ghia AWD. Got almost 800km on it & using BP Premium fuel.
At 3000km I'm going to change the engine oil to the new vegetable based synthetics, been told it is very good for economy & performance.

Re: Territory Fuel Economy

I Have Tx Rwd And Is 15.6/100km Only Done 700k's Though

My 300kw Herrod Xr8 Does 13.4/100 Kms. I Would Not Have Believed The V8 Would Have Been More Economical Than The Six Cylinder But Early Days Yet.

Re: Territory Fuel Economy

My Territory Ghia uses about 1 litre per 100 less than my BA XR8 did and about 0.5 litres per 100 less on the highway. Not much in it although the 75 litre tank is cool cause I don't have to fill it as often even though it costs a bit more to fill. The 68 litre tank in the BA's is too small for the V8 engined models as it doesn't give a good enough range, should be 75 litres as well.
