my city k's may be a tad higher than most as i do shiftwork and so avoid major traffic. highway k's are real. went from adel to hay (720km)loaded with luggage and fuel light never came on and trip comp said another 140 odd k's.

with fuel around 1.20/L i'm pretty happy and sounds to me like you're very jealous.

you serious??? I find it very nerve raking when i am in a car with sum1 driving like a fuking maniac sumtimes..... I can only stand it when i do that :D

But when driving normally, normally especially when low on fuel decide to let the car roll down the hill... quite a fun game if you have the patience.... gone for about 2 km before the car reached bout 10km/h (oh i only do this if i am the only car on the road, not like one of those asians that buy a camry and are too scared to go 50 in a 50 zone).

I drive normal most of the time, the only reason why the economy wouldnt be good in my car is that fact that 80% of my driving is done around town (small city area). I do pretty good considering :)
