hey guys, I seem to be getting not the best of fuel economy out of my VX l67 im averaging 400-430k's too a tank im also using premium fuel so im using about 14.8L/100.. Im about 15ks away from work and in the morning there is hardly any traffic!

Ive changed air filter, fuel filter, plugs n leads, oil/filter and was averaging around 16L/100 before the service the car is also stock as a rock. So kind of wide eyed on this one, as my 5Ltr averages the same on fuel at the moment.

i get about 9l/100km on the highway and around town i average around around the 14-15 mark in my l67. it has always been like this, i just thought thats how they were, thats why ive got my eyes peeled for a nice 5.7 SS

I used to get anywhere from 11-14 liters per 100 out of my l67 Statesman which is worse than my GTS lol.

I don't think you really have a problem mate, my VT V6 gets roughly 12.5L/100km with mixed driving, mostly country. And yours is the L67 version too. I reckon that's about smack on what I'd expect. Especially if you hit traffic in the arvos.
