s**t i must drive like my grandmother,
Last week i reset my avg L/100k's and i've done 683k's with the range still saying i've got another 40k's to empty. The average is 9.6L i think.
About 100k's of that is city driving and the rest is on the hyway.
It's a 4L Auto with no engine mods.

Ride: EL Falcon

Location: Canberra
ACT, Australia

On the highway my EL will get 700km out of a 68l tank. (around 9l/100)

Around town, I use about 12l to the 100km.

I use premium, generally Vortex 95 RON.

Tempted to try BP Ultimate, and I will try advancing the base timing a little to get the full advantage of the higher octane.

Engine is bog standard.

in my 1983 ZK Fairlane Classic (two tone paint, mine was light blue over silver), I got 450kms around town out of a tank of fuel and about 600kms on the highway, It was an 18 year old car (at the time i had it).

I also had a 4.1 litre fuel injected engine, the old three speed auto gearbox, an 85 litre tank, poor aerodynamics and it only ran on super petrol - no LPG!

Ride: 07 BFII XR6 Turbo

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

EL 4.0L auto

Driving moderately hard I can get about:

380km to a tank of LPG
420-450 to a tank of PULP

I'm on BP ultimate at the mo' and she's done ~300km on pretty close to half the tank, I'll let you know how that one finishes at the end of the week... mmm 98RON :D

All of those figures are for a mix of daily city (peak hour) and freeway driving. Bit over 300km's a week to and from work.
