I have a EL Gli with Dual fuel. LPG gets me about 350 - 400km's to 68 Litres which is a combo of city and highway. I have 640K on the clock.

Car does need a new ECU and a tune up though.

i get 420km out of a 68L tank, mixed highway and local, whats weird though every now and then i get 340-360MAX when that happens i reset the avg l/100km on the trip computer, next fill i get 420 again, its so weird though cause that shouldnt have anything to do with it, but its done that about 3 times, could it be just a co incidence i dont know but it works so i do it...
