thast what i did i got 240km oan full tank (1st tank) but as u do u was thrashin her.

2nd talk filled up on thurs done 130 and about half a tank left tank left its going for a full tune under warrenty id say its running rich.

id be happy with 400 a tank

how can i telkl if there is chip were is it located

Damn! I have been giving my car a bit of a hard time this tank, and i've got about 1/4 tank left and done about 490km.
Mind you my car isn't an XR6, just a Futura with a wee exhaust mod.

i get roughly 600km to a tank from my futura just cruising it and between 500 - 550 playing with it.

The chip should be attached to the computer behind the passanger side kick panel
