Economy what economy, when i bought my falcon eb1 3.9 with an exhaust and nothing else it would get 770 from a tank on the highway and about 480km around town

since ive done the EL motor conversion/injection i think id be lucky to crack 350km VERY lucky, its s**t my badly coz i cant even afford to drive the thing the way it is.... why all of a sudden dodgy economy, does the EL comp want the engine running hotter?? ive noticed cruising at 100 with the torque converter locked it jerks abit, dont know why my TPS are both linked together the ECU and Auto computer could this be causing a problem? im still running the stand alone auto computer... there could be a million things on this s**t :@ and to top it my anger with this car yesterday i raced a VX supercharged and he was pulling away....I used to be able to pull away from them...Id love to burn this car.

Phong - I'd check your thermostat - make sure it's not stuck open (like they often do!)...I'd replace it anyway if it hasn't been replaced before - 91 degree I think is the one you want.

I'd definitely have injectors cleaned or get new ones...you won't regret it.

well i found out that the previous thermostat was open when it was cold so obviously it was a dud so i replaced it. went on the mt macedon cruise and it ran a bit better. but the economy didnt increase too much. its probably down to 19l/100km from a 22. so there are things still to come.
