I get 16's around town out of the GT-P, and that's being driven like I stole it - everywhere!

I recently did a track day at Oran Park, so drive from Canberra, to Oran Park, 40+ laps at full tilt, and drive back to Canberra average for the trip was 16.4L/100.

Since I bought it (new), the overall average is 15.69L/100 (over 23,000KMs now).


yours is a 6 speed auto yes?


Yes it is.

And yeah the edits are supposed to be great for fuel econ, as well as helping remove the lack of torque down low the BOSSs experience.

Various names. Basically editing the ECU so it runs differently.

I've just done a country run of around 500k's. It returned 12l/100k on premium & cruise cont. Bloody good I thought.That was with 5 adults & a boot full of luggage. Much better than i expected. Not pushing the pedal like I have been around town though!!


I'd say that is very good economy!
