Hey guys, got a couple of questions.

I am currently getting 16.7L/100KM's with a Foam tune on my VS Senator. It's just done 157,000kms. Is it average / crap?? Just got an oxy censor for it too, now, do the VS 5 litres have one or two oxy censors? I know they are 2 wire censors.

Would the oxy censor be the cause of the fuel economy if 16.7L/100KM's is poor fuel economy?

Yeah i was gonna give that a shot over the weekend at some stage.

Auto or manual?
Economy doesn't seem too high.
It's an auto. I won't lie, the car gets a bootful every now and then, but not even once a day. I mean like maybe once every 2 or 3 days, it's driven normally with a light foot 95% of the time.

thats pretty bad economy. My 5 litre I get about 500 to 550 on the highway and about 400 around town with a 50 litre tank.

Mine's an 85 litre tank dude.

I would think around town that's about standard.

Ah ok, i wasn't exactly sure of what's good and what's not around town on a 5 litre. Keep in mind the figures would be up slightly from the tune, but not overly.

Factory figures are 15L/100km for city driving and I dont think that takes into account booting it. Sounds acceptable. wouldnt know really because I sit on 110 the entire way to/from work. 15L normal + booting it + tune = about right.
