i got 620k highway a few days ago, but i get around 400 in the city, i live in city so this is annoying, funny thing is it doesnt seem to change if im lead foot or not, from what ive seen i could fang my car for 1/2 and use less fuel than if i sat in 5:30 ringroad hell for the same time.

gotta put my gas mixer back in and get gas tuned, gas is going down in cost, ULP is skyrocketing.

rushed.


hahahaha poor u man. ring road traffic is the worst......down the western ring road near edgars i mean. lucky i get off at edgars :P

how the hell do u fellas get 12/100kms. my average on the trip is like 14.7 and going up and down depending where im driving. kinda a nuisance.

some people economy in city driving doesnt help much with economy. but freeway driving makes a difference
