I used to get 100km from 15L (avg) when crusing around town. Give it any decent amount of throttle and much worse... instant consumption as low as 6L/100km on a flat road in overdrive so 12-13L/100km avg would be achievable.

Crusing economy hasnt changed since blower went on, only fuel consumption when booting it.

Ride: EL XR8

Location: Canberra
ACT, Australia

I drive a manual EL XR8 and i am sitting on about 13.5L/100 since October last year. That has included a couple of 4-500km trips but no shortage of booting either... I am running a uni chip and the rest, but i dont think that made any noticeable difference in consumption. If I wanna use less, get off the accelerator so hard!

Might want to ask it in the 8 Cylinder Workshop, you'll find a lot more V8 owners there...

Ride: BF Typhoon

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

Hwy = 8.7-9.8L/100km with cruise control.
City = 17-18.8L/100km with no cruise control used.
Usual = 15-17L/100km with decent acceleration.

All Kms travled have been on PULP due to the fact that the FBT is tuned for PULP.

City driving with regular stop-starts = 14.8 to 15L/100km.
Hwy driving with Cruise Control on = 8 - 9L/100km.
