190-220KM / 85L in my 4L EF Wagon (Only Mobil 8000 Premium!)

300-350 (City and Freeway) / 60L LPG in my 4L EBII Fairmont Ghia

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


hey Waggin. remember that landirenzo system i described in the v8 forum, EB V8 LPG Options? it gets 420km from 68L on the highway with the 5.0L and auto, so i guess the v8's effeciency on gas is even better than i thought.

oh and i get better than 500km with the same car on petrol (also highway)

usualy i get around 450 kms mainly highway driving. the best i ever got sitting on 100km/h with no overtaking was 630 with 40km left on the trip computer.

I'd realy like to get rid of my preformance cam coz it just makes the car too thirsty.

My average economy around town in the XR6 is about 12L/100
on the open road sitting on about 117 it goes up to 8.3L/100
whereas...
My mighty XF ute gets 23.6L/100 no matter if you thrash the ring out of it or drive it like miss daisy. Its amazing, no matter how you drive it, fuel economy is still sh*thouse.


I just retro fitted a trip computer in my EB II GLi last week & since last Sunday (19-12-04) I'm getting around 12.4 - 12.0 L/100 for all the running around in the last week.

I plan to go to Brisbane tomorrow & I will reset the comp & see how I go on the open highway & see what sort of figure I get on highway cycle.

I own the AUII XR6 VCT Auto. Before modding I got 450Km's per tank.
When I moded it with the IT'S stage 3PS kit, I got 400Km's per tank.
When I moded the muffler, straight through, I got 350Km's per tank.

So as it stands, I am getting 350Km's per tank, I am happy with this. The car goes like a cut snake. What else would you expect?
