Last week i filled up my tank and drove 360km and refilled. I could put 46.5 litres in her. Does this sound normal? It seems high to me. How can i convert that into Litres per 100km? What is the average people are getting around here? Im realy feeling these high petrol prices and it doesnt look the prices are going down:(

if i divide 46.5 litres by 3.6 Does that make it Litres per 100km? Thats the only way i can think of figuring it out. im not too good at math. 46.5 divide by 3.6= 12.91litres per 100km????? that right???

yeah twelve is good really, considering cruising consumption is about 10 or so in a 3.8 considering age and what not...3 more litres for city is alright.

Ok thanks for your help guys. Im pretty happy with my fuel usage now even though it still costs a fortune to drive these days. April last year was when i got my license and petrol was 97c litre. Those were the days. And i remember petrol went up to $1.20 and i was panicing then. I wish it was $1.20 now haha

Try running PULP, I think you'll find that for most driving it will give you better consumption figures, and will actually save you money in the long run.

PULP has about a 6-7% increase in price per litre. However, for my car, I've found that I go 12% further on each litre than ULP. So the more expensive fuel actually saves me money.

For the record, I get between 10 and 11L/100km around town and as low as 7L/100km on the open road. However if I drive it hard, I can get it to blow out to be about 15 around town.
