Fit a bigger tank ???


Hahaha classic.

I'm getting 14.8/100km around town/short motorway driving, but i live in a really hilly bastard of a city. Manual helps it a fair bit, before when it had the auto, it was getting 17.9L/100km :shock:

I'm getting around 14.5 in the ute (Driving with fuel consumption in my mind)

If you really want to save on petrol, coast down hills in neutral (this will up your braking) and drive at 80km/hr everywhere and put it in 6th.

f**k this just reminded me of my boss when I asked him why he didn't option up the towbar on his new malloo and said it was because of the extra weight would suck more fuel, and he didn't really need it. He lefted me speechless to comprehend his reasoning of 10kg extra would be fuel issue, If I'd been able to comprehend, I'd probably have fallen over laughing.



LOL.. I rekon if he is getting upset over 10kg of weight vs fuel economy... He shouldnt be buying a Marloo. I can understand your speachlessness (I doubt thats word but suits the purpose)
