trip computer hovers around 8-9 l/100km on highway run.
around town, it sits around 13 on mine. Be interesting to see how others are going with theirs, cause that seems a bit thirsty.

Mine does about 500km to a tank if you drive in a normal manner, can do 550km if you be careful. Use the right foot lots and it can sink to as low as 450km. It really depends a lot on your driving style. If you can keep it below 2000rpm you'll get good economy.

Mine has never dipped below 14L /100, for the last few months it has been averaging 14.4L and thats for a mixture of city and highway. Not to bad but could be better. However, hooning mood + sports mode = bad fuel economy :lol:

Stock ba should do a little better because of taller diff ratio.

you people who can't drive a ba i6 under 2000rpm can enjoy your increased fuel costs and drivetrain/excessive brake wear, but i just love cruising steadily around.
An update on fuel economy, i just got back from driving about 560k's in the ba, it did it on 3/4 of a tank. Trip computer reads 9.6L/100k and i would estimate that on a full highway tank i'd get 650 k's (going off the range saying about 140k's after drive (mind you i trust that range figure as much as i trust Microsoft's x "Minutes Remaining"))
