I get around 15-16 (more ((alot more)) if mood calls for it) for normal driving city to outer subs but mostly short trips or long trips, not in between lol.
On quite long country trip can see it down to 9-10 easy with climate on.
When I 1st got it it was on 8.8 from Sydney to Melbourne cruising 120ish with Climate also.

This isnt I6 thou.

So is my trip comp the only one here that's slow to react?
By the way you guys are talking, your avge l/100km display is fairly instant. As I said, if I started to do nothing but highway kay's from today, the trip comp won't start coming down for about 2 weeks. Why would mine be sluggish?

Mine is same, i can do grampy driving on long trips just cruising at 100ish for cpl of days then it will drop significantly.
Same as if i go out for night n give it a bit, it wont show up untill day or so later lol.

Its not a precise piece of equipment trust me; but its a good tool to see how your driving style changes from week to week.

I just go by how many kms i do per tank; thanks much more accurate!
