Hey guys i have had my ef (which runs on gas) for a few weeks now and i am absolutely disgusted at the economy. I ask this question as to see if its normal or if i should do something.

A full tank of gas gets me only 280km then the fuel light comes on. is this normal?? hell if it is then it works out the same to run on petrol! any info on why she is chewing up so much gas would be aprreciate.

Cheers.

yeah i know an lpg specialist who did my blue slip he told me he'll do it. you think all it needs is a tune up? does the fact that its done half a million kms have anything to do with the consumption on gas (even though fuel is normal)?
thanks

I get 420km/tank (65litre) around the city, which is most of my driving - 60-70kph. Did a trip to Byron and surrounding areas at New years - 90%highway - and managed 480 on the tank. Might have did better, but was getting low and needed to top up :)

My V8 (before latest mods) reliably got 400kms from a tank and over 500km from extended hwy driving... So much for V8's being worse on fuel economy!!

seems like im the only one thats getting the worst k's out of them all i get only around 220 a week, used to get at least 270km, its been tuned, last week and yeah its crap on fuel, use's way to much im thinking it could be because of the exhaust i put on, been told should be extractors on to get better fuel, plus my guage reading is totally screwed
