i used to get about 750 out of a tank on a trip with my el 6cyl and about 450 in town.
the honda averages about 10l per 100kms around town and 8l per 100 on a trip.hence the reason i got rid of the el..

Yeah thats pretty much the same Economy I get in my EL. I guess thats the price you pay for the bit heavier and thirstier 6 Cylinder Cars.

Sounds about right to me.
Used to do that trip every couple of months in a AU Fairmont & would get about the same.

Damn ... I use more than that ... I need to get my odometer fixed though.
I can't wait to do a good highway run in the car to see how well it goes though ... so far since I bought the ute I have only driven around town.

I miss the economy of the old little Proton Satria ... I used to get 700-750km out of about 40L of fuel ... and that was averaging 120km/h on the highway ... it was awesome ... this was after few mods ... in stock form it wasn't that good.

Ride: EL XR6 with JMM Dev5, Manual

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

when i converted my EL XR6 to a manual, on hte 2nd week, i did a trip from Melbourne to Adalaide, i tanked @ Bachers marsh to a full tank of premium @ the BP on the highway, and made it all the way to the CDB and to north road, then i had to tank.. i think on the trip meter i did 750km on that tank, but by the end i was basicly driving it on the fumes. i cant remember how it went with the auto, it was long ago

adelaide to hay (710ish) with trip comp claiming another 120km's to empty. accross the hay plains would sit on 7l/100k. for round trip to qld from adelaide i averaged 9.4. that included driving round up there. my brother did the journey in a ba xt and economy wasn't much dif on highway.

i do shift work so round town i am rarely in heavy traffic so i get 600 - 650 per tank.
