Thats what you call good fuel economy!
I usually get 350km booting it around, just over 400 on the hwy.
but 480-550! you must be driving your car like a grandma or my system is f**k!


Is it a 68L tank or you put in 68L of gas?

I've had just over 600 k's to 68 lt out of my EF 4.0.... It used to get 500 around town.

I've also had 560 k's out of my AU 5.0 for the same amount of gas.

My old EF 5 Speed Wagon would get 450km out of 62 Litres of Gas, put a new convertor/stepper motor on & it'd only get 350-380 :(

my ea wagon gave me an easy 500 odd on the highway. sitting on 110-120. i replaced the oxygen sensor and it got better. still not sure how, as there was no closed loop control on the lpg setup.
