    Once you strap turbos to any car they become fuel guzzlers ... Hence why all imports are shithouse on fuel

    I was in te same spot as you about 3 months ago. Tossing up between a ve commodore and a liberty. Went the ve just cause the subaru had a dead spot in it and it's only 4speed. Other then that the subaru was decent. Services more expensive for the Subaru and a touch harder to work on due to horizontal opposed 4. Subaru uses less fuel. Commodore rego more and insurance more.

    Safety wise almost the same. Space wise commodore.

    Pros and cons on both. Not just the fuel. Sit down and write a list of pros and cons for both the decide.

    Must have been something wrong with it.
    I've had a couple of Libertys (autos, no turbo) and they've consistently given around 8.9 L/100k in combined city / highway driving.

    Proves the point I made in another thread regarding LSX fuel economy... it can vary so much!

    Obviously you want to make sure everything mechanically is all good including tyre pressures and what not... but that aside, it does depend a lot on driving style and the type of driving you are doing. Some people's "city" driving is very different from others, so when people post up results that seem heaps low... they are probably driving along 70km/h roads with no traffic or lights.

    Commodore SV6 2004
    i dont know if someones already said this but i cbf checking all the comments so ill say it anyways.

    I have a vz sv6 3.6L v6 and my mate has a 98 subaru liberty 2.5L boxxer 4
    His car is pretty good on petrol on average. he would spend $40-$60 for a full tank on 98 petrol. Its good in sydney traffic doesnt burn through petrol unlike commodores. i just filled up my commo today spent 75$ for a 3/4 of a tank. petrol was expesnive though $1.61 per/L for 95 (cuz im struggling with money atm i usually put in 98) the commo burns through petrol in sydney traffic averaging 30-40kmph. but on highway its great it will go for ages without having to fill up. Unlike the subaru it will burn through petrol sitting on high revs on the highway. so depends what sort of driving you would be doing. if you are averaging 30-40kmph in traffic and stuff go for a 4cylinder (wish i got a subi.. still love my sv6 though) but if you are doing a lot of highway then go for a commodore. depends on your financial status or which one you like the most really.

    goodluck with the buy hope this helped :)

    This is ####ed.... I pulled the fuel tank put from under the car have replaced the sender and return hoses from fuel tank/filter. Replace the T pieces everything and look what I am getting. Yeah I mean I thrash it, but it's a V6..... ImageUploadedByTapatalk1345215161.609480.jpg
