Ride: Ford AU series 2 Wagon

Location: melbourne
VIC, Australia

i have modified my Au series 2 Wagon .
i added extractors, and a red back 2.5" exhaust.
my fuel consumption per 100 kilometers on the highway is roughly between 8.75 and 8.70 litres per 100 kilometers.
i travelled 845 kilometers on 70 litres, of regular unleaded 91 octane fuel.

does anyone else have good or better fuel consumption figures than what i have obtained.

thats good consumption for a flogging car, mine gets driven hard every day, Worst I have done in 220km out of a tank.. thats hard driving, yeah on a track, but nothing under 4 grand. usually average about 15-19l per hundred round the burbs, HOWEVER.. take it easy and drive for economy, I can also pull out over 500km from a tank un the suburbs, 800+ on the hwy, best I have done is 930km out of a tank, going to QLD.

Gotta love that.

Your fuel consumption on the hwy seems a little high cilkorules, my ef will show (on the trip comp), between 6-8 on the hwy. I averaged under 7l/100km driving to the gold coast, ~300kms from where I live.

The trip computer on my BA XR6 registered at 13.8K/100L yesterday. It usually floats at about 14.0 or so. I can normally get about 450Ks to the tank on average, sometimes a little closer to 500 if I'm lucky.
