In some of the morning traffic there it wouldnt suprise me to get that sort of consumption. Nice open roads are where these cars like to be.

450kms is about what i get, on a tickford EF 6... i tend to give the car a bit of a floggin once she's warmed up too hehehe im still enjoying the extra power between 2,000rpm and about 4,500rpm a tickford head has to offer. After 4,500rpm im sure it's the standard headers/exhaust that's holding me back... but that should be rectified soon with pacie comps and 2.5" zorst

Back on topic, i wouldnt be too concerned with 450kms a tank. Are you running premium? Because most people including myself believe it'll give better economy - which basically means it negates the extra cost of using it.

As well as the other side benefits of it - cleaner fuel, detergents, and higher octane
