$35-40 per week (V-Power only) all short trips as well roughly 300-400kms. I usually add Lucas petrol treatment every forghtnight roughly 200mls to 1/2 a tank.

Seems to like that stuff. But i dont care how much it cost to run either! I enjoy every drive!


where do you buy V-power for 85cent/L ???


Heh? I just put in $15-20 for the weekends and then ill put $20 mid week. I get roughly 300-400kms a week out of that (average). i dunno how manly litres it is per 100kms i think it averages about 11-12L/100km. I may have worded my first post wrong???

your saying you do 400km with $40 of V-power. it doesn't add up. Even if you could manage 10l/100km you'd still need to be buying fuel for $1/L

lets be nice and pretend you can get better the factory quoted consumption and call it 11.5l/100km
at what V-power costed we'll be nice and call it $1.25/L it's going to cost you at least $55 do go 400km in an Auto EF XR6.

Nah wasnt claiming anything, the calculations arent correct in my first post as was rough guess with (300-400kms range). but was just saying the V power prices is BS atm.

EF ghia 5.0 (stock apart from exhaust) On LPG, although I only use propane from Supagas.

I do 600km a week, all freeway 16L/100 out of LPG costing around $45 a week at the moment.
80 litre usable cost me under $40 to fill. I absolutely love the economy.

Figured it cost me only $7.68 to drive 100k's!! IMO you'd be hard up finding a petrol 4cyl with that economy in the real world!

Keeping In mind 99.8 % of my driving is on the freeway doing 100km/h with cruise.
