well splashed some fuel in my car this after noon as it got to red (i know it aint good)
looked at my trip clock and it had 297km on it which i reset at every fill up, i filled up with 33 ltrs last week as we had the local JC crusie.

is this unheard of getting 9 ltrs to 100kms in a vl, i was grany driving shifting at 1200-1300rpm all week besides two drag races that accoured,
i have changed every sensor in my car recently and its running smooth and perfect, could this b why im getting soo good?
it is said that stock manual vls get 10.5 100km so if its possible? and not my trip clock stuff? im stooked if it not stuffd

the great thing is a drive like this always with out thinking of shifting early, problem is i dont get payed much so cant fill up and use it to my advatage well:bang:
what do yous out there get? ____ltr per 100km

could it also be to do with having a zorst system and CAI with K&N panel allowing quick in and quick out of fresh air and th by products?
