Try using a little less right foot! :)

Seriously, if the car is stock, concider, tuneup including timing, plugs leads, air filter, clean injectors etc, and have the O2 sensor checked out, also tyre pressures.

Ride: BA MkII XT Wagon

Location: Maitland
NSW, Australia

once again i did another trip to see how i would go, from newcastle to sydney and back to north of newcastle,about a 600km round trip i used 3/4 of a tank, and i was down to 8.2l/100km at one point in time, bloody peak hour traffic stuffed me up and i went back up to 9.6!

oh and thats on caltex vortex, justthe regular stuff, not vortex 98

and this week im on regular unleaded and i have completed bout 400 to half a tank, this includes city driving too

u guys need to get off it a bit :P get some of the lead outta u feet!

btw,i dont know how much extractors, zorst k&n and snorkel would improve my figures over standard, as i never did any trips while it was standard!

NEWS!! The car's computer said I could get 770km of highway travel from one tank of regular unleaded petrol, based on Albury to Melbourne run two weeks ago. Although, car can use a bit more fuel on a trip to the Grampians, Mount Gambier, because of the hills and small hamlets on the way (ie change of speed limits).

Yeah my EL 4.0L gets about 430-450 and thats pushing it hard everytime i get a green light :P i bet if i reved her a lil less and drive like a civilized p***y driver then i'd get at least 550kms out of her, but 450 kms per tank is a great prize just to show off the power of my Falcon :D im actually not sure how big the tank is, im guessing its like 60ltr

68L tank, should hold around thde 70ish mark thou considering you can fill the neck n not all pumps appear to be THAT accurate.

Ride: '97 EL XR6

Location: Cairns
QLD, Australia

My EB2 S with minor mods (filter and exhaust) gave me 500-550km around town and 650-700 with a little h/way travel.

My BA XR6 ran at 18-21km/litre around town and 9.1 on and avg h/way trip.

And EL XR6 is doing 350km in town and 500km with h/way travel.

All 3 cars run on premium only. Thank god that it still only cost 96.9/litre to buy.
