I get about 500kms to a full tank of PULP Normal driving. And about 450-500kms to a full tank on LPG however the LPG system is running very lean atm :roll:

Not too bad.

280-350 (city) and 5000-600 / 60L LPG in my (almost MRE-40L's) 4L EBII GLi


Mines the same, but i thrash mine on gas. (and get these figures)

EB II Gli 4litre sedan Dual Fuel.

(litres used / kilometres travelled) x 100 = litres/100km

my fuel consumpsion is round about the same as LTDHO's

about 260 km's if i baby it, about 200 if i thrash it, and thats PULP...., and fuel consumpsions slowly getting worse, when i got the car i used to get about 320 if i baby'd it, about 260 if i trash it on pulp, now im getting the same figures as i used to with normal unleaded, :D , i LOVE my car!

im thinking my o2 sensors are gone, as i just had to replace the cats as thier time was up and they got blocked from getting thrashed all the time, im guessing the sensors not to far up went even before the cats did., but we'll see.
