The Super6's are nice to drive, love the quiet get up and go.
I enjoy taking mine out for a drive now and then.
I drove a friends 2002 VX Calais Super6 some time ago, and that was Dual Fuel and drove great on Gas and Petrol,

I find mine is fairly fuel efficient, keeping in mind its all stock.
13 L/100k suburban
approx. 9.6 on trips, especially up and down the hume highway.

I did find 2 items with mine,
  1. has a hesitation when its cold, but when its warmed up a bit, it accelerates nicely.
  2. sometimes doesn't return to idle (approx 750 rpm) sometimes, replace the IAC and TPS with new ones, and then tried also S/hand ones, but seems to have settled down now.

I replaced the IAC valve today as I had rough idle when cold. I tried to clean the old one a couple of months ago , but that didnt work. Seems much better now.

I recently bought a vt calais l67 myself, I'm getting 10L per 100km on U95 longer drives and 11L per 100 round town. My old vt wagon used to chew the fuel compare to this
