Yeah thats off my trip computer, it's at 14.6l/100k now but thats mostly because i took it for a 30 min drive on the freeway.
What do you guys set the "km's to go" option at when you start your car up? Mine is at 500km, does that effect the consumption reading at all?
Cheers for all your advice ill have to check some of it out, i might be getting a new exhaust so we'll see if that improves the economy..
Sorry i meant the option where it says how many km's till empty
my bad, shoulda been more specific
Don't trust the trip computer. Fill the tank up to the brim, even when it clicks off keep filling until it's about to start pouring out. Then drive it for a few hundred kms then fill it up the same way (right to the top) and calculate actual litres put in per hundred kms.
Ill try that adam, measuring how much im actually using...just a question, are the fuel gauge and computer related? Or do they run on their own merits.
Iv'e done around 250km on this tank its got about 1/3 of a tank left according to the gauge, and the computer says i have about 200km of more travel till the tank is empty, im not sure what to believe-if any :S
I've calculated that my fuel gauge is 5 to 10L out.
Damn dude, I am getting about 11.6/100km at the moment out of mine. Had it for about 3 weeks now I went on a cruise on Sunday where we drove from Perth -> gingin -> Toodyay (wa of course) and got it down to 10.6/100kms. Did about 350kms on just above half a tank. When I give it a caining though it does go up to about 14.2/100. I drive 25kms from home -> work and then back again every day and then the travel in between. Consistently with this sort of driving I average about 12.6/100kms.
Hope that helps ya dude
Me? I'm the guy who does his job ... you must be the other guy ...
Had my SV6 down to 8.6 L/100km @ 113km/h cruising the highway (110 zone) this weekend.
Then I had a slight head wind and it went up to 9.0L/100km.
