Ride: EL Wagon & BF MK II

Location: Raymond Terrace
NSW, Australia

My El Wagon done 750kms p/tank on the way to Brisbane, around town though I'm luck to crack 550kms from a full tank. Premium dosent seem to go any better, except the car does run smoother (no rough idle).
My work car (AU III str8 LPG) is a dog around town, wont get muck more that 400kms, but open road will get around 600kms p/tank.

I have notices my EL will chew it more from time to time, both city and country driving but it maintains a decent count. I really notice a diffrence going from my local independant servo (s**t economy) to filling up at Shell or BP (always better). Bp seems to be the best I recon.
