I would be happy with 400... My EL gets about 350 round town, but gets near 800kms to the tank on 98 octane down the freeway.

I get about 350 - 400 around town and about 750 on the freeway...well on saturday I drove to Apollo bay and managed to get 450kms out of maybe just over half a tank...and now I am sitting on 500 with about 100kms to go.

your car sounds about right.

You must drive like a grandma....My olds had one of them when I was learning to drive and it was the most fuel hungry POS I have ever had to put fuel into. You must have a Wednesday car as I have never heard of a wagon doing that many km's to a tank, especially on that cheap s**t SAFF fuel.

I am cheering if I get over 400km's from my ED around town, but I do have a heavy foot and tend to be lazy about changing gears. 600-650 on the highway.

your happy for 400km, i'm lucky to get 300-350 around town most weeks from my EB, but the freeway kicks a**, melbourne to ballarat then to bendigo and finally back to melbourne on 3/4 tank of bp ultimate. can't remember how many k's that was but it sure was fun.

Ummm yeah, not sure about LPG, $3g for install now with the gove grant in effect, then $250+ for valve lubricating system. plus i like power and I do want to mod my car, LPG limits my options there.... well so i have been told.

Just had LPG fitted and seems about 350KMs to tank of 70L. Again around town.

Actually heres a question regarding fuels, is it possible to have a moderately modified engine running on LPG, say a Jim Mock dev3hl kit... are there any really bad side effects. and is it possible to have forced induction on LPG? I'm pretty sure you can't but i can't see the reason why?
