HSV clubsport
Hi all,

I have been looking at trading my 2010 fg xr6 turbo in for 2008 hsv clubsport.
Still unsure if this is a wise move, my current car has 291rwkw and 800nm so there is a power change. Has anyone got an idea with highway driving how many km ill get to a tank?

Cheers

with a tune and otr I can get 800klm from a tank no problems, this was on a trip from Brisbane to Sydney/Bathurst and back last year, stuck to speed limits etc, didn't drive like a granny though gave some stick when overtaking, leaving rest stops etc, all highway though

I dont think you will see much difference between the 2 cars on fuel usage. Is yours a manual, or auto?, and are you looking at manual or auto? Is the Clubby the 6.0, or 6.2?
Both have there own good and bad points. Drive the HSV before making the decision.

My cousin has a VE clubsport that gets 15L to a tank...with no mods.

I think theres something wrong with it though after reading the consumption you guys get :/

Would you buy a V8 that produced 270kw if the fuel consumption was at 22l/100km? :p

No because its not 1985 anymore.

I was just pointing out that would it really matter to him if it used alot of gas, he isn't buying a Prius after all. haha
