Hello chaps,

-I have a EF Series I XR6 Auto
-Dual Fuel
-Max range so far 515kms averaging 14L/100km on the Gas
-$35 to refill the tank

This is mainly highway cruising at 100kph.

Don't worry about petrol that much as you can appreciate it's cheap as chips to run on Gas.

Cost per week sounds strange to me, a bit pointless really.
How about L/100kms?

EL Futura wgn average 11L/100kms best 9.8L/100kms (686km to the tank) consistent for 3 months long distance commuting.
XG Xr6 11.5 ishL/100km (average 520kms per tank) but haven't kept track as well, cause that includes a bit of sideways km's :wink:

Hi All,

Ride: ED 93 Falcon 5spd
Fuel: Caltex Vortex which is 95RON?
Cost: About $40 per fortnight for staying in town and not towing anything too heavy(~30L)

Just a note for these probably high costs: I do drive a little harder than most generally run second gear to 50 and skip third so these measurements aren't the most fuel efficient :wink:

Cheers...
