Ride: XD 351, FG Ute

Location: Darwin
NT, Australia

my el has a 68L tank and get's about 500k's so $70 will get me 500k's in my EL but $70 will get me around 600k's in my XD

clevo is cheaper when it is on gas then EL not on gas

Yep, running the same on the XY (on a manual box). I have a 80l usable tank and I fill up half way from Sydney to Canberra. But really, the car isnt built to be fuel efficient, it was built to cost less to run. I simply couldnt justify the cost of running the car on petrol. The gas gear is worth a few extra bucks during the build, but at 50 cents at the worst during the recent fuel prices, I really dont care about the initial outlay.

i dont mind filling up every second day. 351's r sick i nearly died in mine but ive learnt my lesson there average off the line but keep your foot down and they will scare the s**t out of you. i pulled my boat with it once i watched the needle flicker to empty so quik it was rediculious. there the biggest fuel guzzlers but the xc is an awsome beast.
