Added extra Weights such as Fuel Loads etc makes a lot of noticable difference as well. I get 8.4Secs for 0-100 with 3/4 tank of fuel and me in at 98kg. Sitting on 1/4 left of fuel and I get Easy 8.1 Secs

For some reason my car really responds well when the oil presure is high and on petty or LPG its roughly the same 0-100 time however petty revs out harder and faster. :roll:

My car atm feels faster than when i bought is as i belive there were a few things that needed to be fixed/serviced at time of purchase.

Clocked a very good 8.014 last night weather must have been perfect for her. :D

And to make it more accurate a passenger timed me, rather than me doing it and cheating :roll:

that's pretty weird dude, that must mean that your car burns lpg better then petty i guess.....

Its not hard to explain really the car must have been tuned to run better on LPG, i could of done the same with my XR6. My dads XF LTD is just about LPG dedicated and runs alot better on LPG, running it on petrol nearly makes the car stall lol. :roll:

But he does have a performance LPG cam or whateva you call it. :roll:

I get about 9 seconds in the EA with it running on injector cleaner, in Drive with Power mode, thats with my girl timing.

I agree with Jaysen... I've gotten better starts without stalling up the converter.

I'd like to say though, I think the 0-100 times are more important than the 1/4 times... honestly, you gotta be pretty silly to be goin over the speed limit in our vehicles. Cops luv pullin over the Commodores and Coons in Brissy, and its not like you wanna be driving around the streets at 150 kmph anyway.

I've been in the situation, time and time again where I will race someone at the lights, and the EA will pull nicely in front and I'll stop accelerating at the speed limit, then the guy in the Commodore, Skyline, Lancer just keeps speeding off to somehow prove a point.. :p I say...
