yeah auto, i have gotten 800km befor sitting on 95km/h but that was a huge drag. its 16.2 lt/100km atm, wouldnt mind getting it down to 14ish, i drive fairly sedate but i think i just got a thirsty one

4spd autos are worse than a manual, but you probably should be getting a bit better economy if you drive it as a NA most of the time

Welllll I'd definitely be looking at getting the gas retuned, thats pretty bad for hwy driving! Even gas will be down near 10L @ 100kmhr with a good mixer setup...

you should be making around 12-13 per 100km's average. on petrol i average a 12.4L at 44kmh. great economy on the highway with 6-8 per 100k's. you should see a good 500-700k's out of a tank on the highway no doubt. leaking exhaust pipe or stuffed cat?

Maybe on petrol on a down hill stretch, even my EL on petrol only got 8.5 on the Nullarbor.
ON LPG my BA gets 900+ out of 116lts which equals about 12, around town its 15-16

mainly on petrol yeah. regardless of where i was driving i used to get 6-8. although i always run V Power or BP Ultimate. we did have an AU Falcon on LPG running about 9-11 per 100k's highway travel mainly.

Yes on 98ron I could get the EL down below 8 on the highway but on standard unleaded 8-9 was its best.

6 months ago isn't recent, it due for an other service.
