Hi All,

I am just curious, what sort of mileage are you all getting from your 5.0Ls? I just got 400km from 55L. Is this reasonable for my ute? It has 160000ks on it.

Cheers

prior to my heads and manifold mod on my EF, I was getting around 500k commuting and running to the shops etc, out on the highway that was up to just over 600k out of a tank, trip computer used to say 10.8L/100km on a long haul, hoping for better than that now I have more air getting into the cylinders.
