Im late 20s, I travel between sydney and melbourne for business.

BAck to technospeak, any reasons why im using 20L/100km? I dont drive it that hard.


Might have to tee up something... Would be interesting to see if as big a wanker in person as you are on the forums.

But thanks for the age info, seems like you fall into the 20's Holden wanker section.

Ask the person who drives your car the most, as you have said you dont spend alot of time in it. They are probably thrashing it.

And in reality, I dont see many people on here really wanting to help you at all. Be a waste of time.

Your right, I should stick around in order to get a balanced view, and continue to put these people in their place. I call a spade a spade. They call a spade an ace. Most of the guys here even convince themselves they are right ie 25rwkw from an exhaust? A ford engineer said that. farout. :roll:

They are like shallow hal, they see different numbers on a dyno to reality. They see 140rwkw everyone else only sees 125rwkw. :?

Someone on here told me that shorter diff gears equals better fuel economy?

Ive gotta check up the EL, runs perfect but its a guzzler.

I'd really love to know what your definition of a balanced view is... Obviously its "agree with me, or your not right".

I'd love to see your list of people you've put in their place. Chances are only your name is on it?

And would you be so kind to provide the name and post of the person who said shorter gears give better fuel economy. As chances are, you just made it up to help your cause.

get a 4 wheel alignment & balance done, check your cat for blockage, check & clean your injectors, check your spark plugs.

Or........do what a sensible & intelligent person would do..........drop it in for a major service.

The only thing I port and polish is a hot woman. Women dont like guys with sandpaper for hands. So thats why I choose to leave the engine crap to guys like ARM whilst im out port and polishing the women (probably his too). If ARM grabbed a women she would think she was being exfoliated.

Anyone that has to crap on like that about how much they get is well and truly compensating for something

Poor fuel economy figures like that just plain and simply something is stuffed......

Find it and fix its as easy as that (gas guzzler wasnt a rare factory option).

My apologies it was a member of Ls1.com that said better fuel economy from shorter diff gears

They are like shallow hal, they see different numbers on a dyno to reality. They see 140rwkw everyone else only sees 125rwkw. :?
