damn, people actually do get good economy sometimes.lol i didn't think anyone would considering ya's own 4ltrs and most drive pretty hard. good work, ill be taking mine away mid way through the year hopefully with the new o2 so it should see below 10.0, i hope.


just going to throw the idea out there. it might be telling the ecu its rich and be leaning the motor out slightly? chuck one in and let us know how it goes.

did mine and didnt notice any particular improvement
i just done 2 overnight trips to griffth,1200ks at 120kph av. 14/100 lpg and no cruise,nearly all hills,what i saw was green and healthy so must have rained,went 2 different ways to see more country.

My standard EF 4.0 auto got 9.2L/100 sitting just over 100Km/h in yesterdays 39ºC heat. Perth to Mandurah and back according to the computer.

On a cold night I've seen it using 6.8L/100 at about 90Km/h but yoou lose those figures with stops and starts.

Before I reset it there was 16.5/100 from the last few weeks of city driving.

mondeo's arnt small cars and the deisels have a but if grunt. i cant think of a motor in a car that size that makes decent torque and economy that good.

Driving like a grandma, keeping it under 2000rpm, and using cruise control gets me from Adelaide -> Ballarat with 3/4 of a Tank

City/Suburban driving....lol, Probably 300-350 out of a full tank

i generally get 400-450 city and 700-750 highway, 1997EL, 5 speed, extractors. cruise on my EL definerly uses more fuel than just using your foot sensibly...! I get better economy from 92 oct fuel... but smoother on 95... LOL

the listed economy is 7.6 ? i think per 100... nfi how you can get that!

AUIII Fairmont, high 13's L/100km. Climate control keeps the A/C kicking in and out most of the time, except for "tween" ambient temperatures where it's not cold enough to frost up the windscreen and not hot enough to need cooling for comfort... I just switch it off and set the appropriate fan speed.
