Fuel Consuption

Only early days as I have only had 4 refils so far

City driving average 19/100 and am getting around 380ks before I have to fill her up with around 66litres of fuel.

I am sure these tanks are around 85 litres though, and the guage was a fraction away from red with 30ks to empty on putah, so thats got me buggered

HWY driving around 12/100 and 650 out of a tank, taking into account some hevy overtaking thats pretty good for a 2 tonne car!!

Thoughts or experiences guys!

Re: Fuel Consuption

I'm getting around 11/12 per 100, but I live in the bush. Travelling at around 110-120 returns 24 mpg and in town around 20. I have a 2002 Limited and after my old V6 14 mpg city/18 mpg highway, it is a pleasant change since it has so much more grunt
