Yes, but was that on LPG?

I got 510kms out of my Scuba Tank setup on the highway not long ago.

Sydney to Canberra, drove around Canberra for the day, and back up to Goulburn. Quite happy.

330 from 65L sounds pretty bad Wayne :shock:

I'd say my kms are so good because 99% of it is country highway driving, the car rarely sees above 1/4 throttle or below 80kph & rarely does less than 20 mins of driving in a single trip.

After making the mixture a tad richer, I am getting just shy of 400k per tank in city driving. Pretty good really, as I drive rather spirited most of the time. And I have the triple scuba setup too.

Mind you, I can put 60L each fill time into it.

New record - 490kms :D Tank took a bit more than 55L though instead of the usual ~50L (it was pretty cold when I refilled though, maybe that's why more went in?)... then again it was flat-spotting for the last couple of kms to the servo, I nursed it in.

Mixer rings FTW.
