68L gets me 700-720k every week. cant wait to see what i can get on the highway.


Judging by that economy, you are confused.

Travelling for 20 kilometres too and from work on a toll road at 80 kph without stopping? You are already on a highway!! :lol:

If on the other hand you are getting that sort of mileage from stop/start, bumper to bumper urban roads or similar.....? Well then, I have no option than to suggest your odometer is at least 50% out, or the truth is being bent slightly!! haha



well i know my parents BF futura can get 750kms to a tank of 98ron with no A/C on the highway and just make it to a petrol station only just by the hair of its teeth

Install LPG and u wont go wrong with that even if it's the cheaper mixer kit if ur not going to keep it for long or go vapour or better yet JTG.

This lpg calculator will help u decide

Use Synthetic oil for engine, trans and diff

my bf consistently returns 700km a tank but it's driven on cruise 80% of the time.
K&N panel didn't improve much, i actually wouldn't pay for another one.

you can't honestly get 500km from a tank in a b series and not know why. they're awesome on fuel, i couldn't ask for any better for a 6 cylinder with as much power as it has.

sometimes you have to realise when you've hit the wall :P
