I like you thinking smiley! :D



Its funny that you guys try and collude. Its like a bunch of midgets trying to stand up to the big guy. The big guy (me) laughs at the challenge from the shortasses. You guys are like smurfs working together against the big one.

Come on guys, dont try and take me on, lets just discuss the technical issues.

What about your photo shooting a VL??? they are 20 yrs old!!

Discuss technical issues?
Lower diff gears = more revs at cruising speed = more fuel consumption.
Question answered.

The car is in perfect condition, runs beautifully, trated like gold. Im going off the ghia trip computer reading. It does seem a little high, i drive it a little but mostly other people drive it. (I like a little more power than an i6)


How many KM does this Ghia have? What extractors? What Exhaust? Do you regularly reset the trip computer?

How can you say its treated like gold when you seem to barely drive it?

Wot a f**k sook! Won't get his hands dirty. Do you get your nails manicured pretty boy! Im reasonabley sure EB_V8 is a fag. Anybody else of this opinion? Usually the guys that talk about all the women they get get none while the quiet ones that don't brag get em all!


You dont brag because you have nothing to brag about. Country boys dont see any women (decent women). You guys have nothing to do but get your hands dirty mucking around under the hood. Ive seen more women than everyone on this website combined.

Im sure the sponsors of this website prefer people like me, want performance, will pay for the right performance parts, we do business together, not scabs that want free advice but never spend money.

You are th knob that seems to get on here and try to bait people and ask dumb questions, brag about the women (probably transvestites) and wanna race everyone in ya box of s**t that you reckon has 5000rwkw and 3000ftpds of torque but noone has ever seen this piece of crap or any dyno printouts. Back your so called expertise up ya wanker!
By the way your link to your so called performance engine warehouse or wotever it is called is like ya s**t: it doesn't work! More make beleive s**t!

steady eddy, is fuel economy about rev or load!!! you obviously say revs.

No collusion necessary. Everyone thinks your a f**k retard, so they are quite happy to jump on the 'EB V8 is an illiterate f**k moron' train when they see it arrive.

And please dont try to say lets talk technical when you yourself took it off the rails.

When you next in Melbourne, I'd love to catch up. I may be in Sydney next week, if you really do have any balls at all, I'd be happy to catch up for a drink.

Oh, and btw, how old are you? Seems you omit the simple info from your profile. We are all curious to know if you are a 16yo pud puller, a 25yo Holden tossbag or a 40yo mummies boy still living at home like Bad Boy Bubby.

Combination of both.
I could cruise around at 4500 and use more petrol then at 2400.
But if I loaded it up at 2400, i might use less petrol chaning down and loading up at 4500

I wonder if EB_V8 is the idiot on pornmods that calls himself "pornmodstar"?
They both sound like they have the same amount of intelligence

The LS1 with a decent run should see mid to high 12s, so good luck

make sure you bring that $1000. ill hold ya to it

Baaahaha...
a) You should really do some research on what you are challenging before you accept.
b) 'Should' do 12s and 'has' done 12s... 2 very different things.
c) You ever dragged at a well prepared dragstrip before? Experience counts.
d) GO the Terrorist!!!!!


It will do 12s. Who says im driving, ill let my mate take it down he goes every second week so I reckon ill lick him.

Ill be in the crowd to catch it on camera so i can post it to all of you guys

If you want to pretend you give a s**t about the technical issues the answer is both, but mostly rpm. The amount of fuel that goes into your engine depends on both rpm and load. In a world without mechanical loss a little more rpm and a little less load would just about cancel out and you would use the same amount of fuel. However, more rpm means the engine internals are moving more for every km the car travels, which is more friction that has to be cancelled out with power (more fuel and air).

So lower diff gear = more rpm = more friction = more fuel consumption

Stuffed oxy sensor, vacuum leak, f**k injectors.
List goes on.
Those are the first I'd check.
Do a diagnostic on it, or pay someone else to do it for you.
