    what kind of figures do you guys get? these days im hitting around 12.6 aound town, and right into the 10's for highway, thats only becuase i let the car roll everywhere basically :D haha! Whenever i get a bit excited though, it tends to rocket up towards the high teens and low 20's :ranting:

    lol u must be a fairly spirited driver to get that from a v6, ive been trying different ways to save fuel in the last week or so and ive found just keeping an average speed is the best way, like if a roundabout comes up pull a schumacher and cut it

    Fuel economy? lol

    These are my averages: 10.2 suburbia driving, and 8.9 Freeway. The distance varies sorry - will take note of averages over set distances in future.

    Normally get up to mid thirties off the lights - lol. :rolleyes:

    my 6 at the moment does about 12L/100km, thats suburban driving, not city traffic, just not flowing.

    Freeway lowest ive hit was 7L/100km, suburban lowest was about 11 with fairly easy driving.

    With my V6 I can normally get it to sit in the 10's (suburban & city driving), under 10 if a do a bit more highway.

    I've had it down to 7.9 for a tank once, but that was filling up on the highway and cruising thru the country trying to save fuel.

    Worst was in the 12's when i didn't touch a freeway for a whole tank.

    The v6 gets 10 to 11 around town and around 8 on the highway. I have heard that the v6 sucks fuel when it revs, so I try to keep the revs to not too much more than 2000rpm when I start off. Keeps with the Adelaide traffic and it seems to work.

    How does everyone go towing?

    Spot on, that's about where I'm sitting usually.

    Open roads are a little different, in the Melbourne trip I managed 8.9 which I was over the moon, I didn't realise it went down that low :thumbsup:

    I do very short trips 7km's to work and 7km's home so that would explain why it's so high along with some spirited traffic light action along the way.
