no it can only manage 784km on a tank(73L) according to their website

the ford can get 648 from its smaller 68L tank

wow, er NOT....typical holden s**t....

also accorrding to their figures the old SV6 got 11/100 and the new gets 10.2/100

annual saving of $200 at $1.25/L and 20,000km per year....again f**k amazing NOT!!!

well how did they come to the conclusion that they can get 900k from a tank?

if i sat around 80 to 90 with the 6 speed auto, it would sit around 1400 rpm or threabouts i guess i would get pretty close.

they claim they did melbourne to sydney on 1 tank.
i don't find it that amazing, i get 650-700 eaaaaasy out of my F6 without even trying to be economical, and thats with a bit of ringroad traffic every now and again.
i reckon i could do 800 pretty easily on the hume.

just had a look at the latest wheels mag in the supermarket and it has a test between an FG/VE calais 3.6 and omaga 3.0....

the test was over several thousands of km through the country...

results

average:
FG 10.5 L/100
VE 3.6 10.0 L/100
VE 3.0 9.9 L/100

so wow 5% beter economy.....and how much does it cost when your injectors f**k up?

Is this for real??? :shock: I know the above figures ad up.....,but hell that just seems to far on too little fuel.

I can leave home (Coonabarabran) go to Leicheit Sydney turn around come back and be on the fuel light at around 650kms per tank, i must fill up at some point to finish the trip home. BUT i have a family of 4 (190kgs), esky,and a boot filled up with luggage.

I did not think that was too bad.

Whats with Holden, in there ad they make out they invented direct injection, it came out years ago who cares, the 3.6 still has no torque could only imagine how bad the 3.0 will be to drive, will be good to see how fg XR6 goes against new DI SV6. Can only hope ford keep I6 and go DI
