Just picked up my extaxi with 350k on it. Works great other than a slight shudder and I think the power steering hose is about to die.

However, the AC. The AC blows cold, and hard. But with it on I get 300kms to a full tank of gas. Now with it off, I'm on track to get 650. Driving the same.

My average readout goes upto 25-30 with the AC on at idle.

These are the codes it threw but hasn't thrown them again, that I'm aware of.

i don't know about the codes, so i won't put me foot in it :roll: . with regards to [i presume lpg] consumption ..... i get "around" 300-340 ks around town depending on how i drive it. i don't drive in economy mode. when country driving i can get more k's to the tank & i'm driving an x taxi wagooon. as to you getting 650 k's to the tank [again lpg?] it won't happen. an x had a AU that would head up to 600 k's [or there abouts] when country driving .... however when the tank start to get around half full [something like that or maybe less??] the k's would come tumbling down from the 600. give it awhile and you will workout how many k's you can expect.
