The Definitive fuel consumption thread.

We will keep the posts simple and to a formula.

Engine Size:

Kilometers to tank:

L/100km:

Hmm, might be difficult to measure - I'm only on my second tank of fuel this year...

Then there's that pesky breather hose that seems to leak 10 litres every time I fill up!

 

Back when I used the car as a daily driver I was getting about 450Km from a tank, about 13.3l/100km.

Country trips were much better, hooning about much worse...
