I'd say around 12-13 litres per 100 km's around the city if not a tad more or less depending on your driving (or thrashing).

I've got an AUII LTD (185KW). It does 14-15L/100 around the city on Petrol. 9-10L/100 on the freeway.

I think the Ghia would be a little lighter, so you should do better around town than me.

Its going to be very heavy I'm sorry to say mate, 16 per 100 around suburbia and 10 on the highway. The manual is the box of choice for economy/performance.
