Ride: Falcon EB II 4.0 auto

Location: Mornington Peninsula

i get about 400km off a full tank of regular unleaded petrol, in my 4l 6 eb auto.

im thinking this is a little low, so wanna know whats the norm?

what do you normally get from a tank?


and also, what are common problems to cause hi fuel consumption?

thanks

Not that i've ever filled the tank but would guestimate 450 from a tank (i have reason to believe its an 80L tank).

But yeah, foot down could go as low as 200, maybe less (under boost the fuel guage drops at the same rate the tacho rises, lol)

usually get about 450km from a tank, since i got my exhaust ive been getting a fair bit less than 450 though. i admit i have been putting my foot down a bit harder to hear the rumble :D , im guessing thats the obvious reason im getting less k's, could there be another reason?
