Are you a lead foot? I didn't think I was until I started to really slow things down. Since then I'm getting a good 150+k's more out of my tank.

Now I like to just cruise around everywhere I go. I leave the hooning for the local commo drivers ;)

I get minimum 550k's for a full tank out of my EF Mont. under lead foot conditions. Can easily see over 700k's when driven granny style. You deffinately have a prob. though likely something minor as mentioned above.

I used to get a s**t economy like that from my EA, I put 98 fuel in it, within a few weeks, my mileage increased by about 150km's. People suggested it may have been the detergent additive in premium fuels that helped clean out the system and injectors. Give that a shot.
