I was getting 380 to a tank in my 5.0, so i think something is very wrong haha. I have no idea on checking them, but i replaced mine anyway, better to be 100% sure than not.

Wow you all get such s**t economy!

My standard BF Mont gets an average of 10l per 100, and my fairly warm EB Mont I6 gets the same.

This is with a 60/40 mix of highway/round town driving! Even giving my EB a bootful every now and then i still get atleast 600 per tank!!
