Engine type: L-series
Engine Size: 2.7 (mild stroke)
Tank size: 80 litres
L/100km: 17
Carburettor type: DHLA40 Dellortos

I may or may not be a bit of a lead foot..  ::)


Update, not as good as I thought it was. Tank is 80 litres, can do around 400km on one tank. 5km/L. This is why I can't have nice things.
