    I will start the ball rolling...

    Engine Type: 175
    Auto/Manual: Manual
    Total kms done: 3000
    City Economy (l/100kms): 10-11
    Highway Economy (l/100kms): 9
    Fuel mainly used: Shell Premium (95RON, no Optimax here)

    I am pretty happy with my current ecomomy. The city economy is achieved by driving nicely.. If I give it some around town it can rise to about 12-13 but 10-11 is easy to achieve.
    My dash readout for fuel economy is pretty accurate (shame the fuel gauge isn't half as accurate) , I always check mine against my refuel amounts and it is generally 0.1-0.3 difference (too close to call).

    If you give it a hiding it uses considerably more, also seems to like it...and run better afterwards.
    I am surprised at how the car is transforming as it does more klms. It's gone from being a little stiff, notchy and underpowered and is now feeling considerably better. Smoother (but still not as smooth as a modern engine should be), great gear change and still underpowered but a little more flexible in its response.
    Fuel economy does not seem to have changed that much though.

    As with a number of other posts that I've seen, fuel gauge was way out...almost ran out of fuel running from sydney to melbourne thinking I could have completed the trip on 1 tank. I would have fallen short by about 60-80 Km's. Still not bad going though. Quite impressed.

    Out of interest, I have done a few thousand KM on PULP and the average economy is only a couple of % better, and does not outweigh the increase in cost (11.02 c/km on ULP, 12.07c/km on PULP). PULP has more of an effect on economy on longer runs than around town, but it also takes a few tanks for the car to really get better economy from PULP. If I swap fuels (Currently back on PULP it's for a 2 month block to get a decent baseline).
