Hi guys, brand new to the forum,
But.... heres my question to all models of Commo's
What is the average k's per 100kms you get in your car Un-modified or if you have mods list also please.
Missus is fighting me on v6 and I want v8 and economy is the argument.
Thanks :wax:

I am getting 9.6l per 100km average over last 3 weeks. I drive from one side of geelong, to yarraville in melbourne. If i didnt have to drive through the city it would be even less. I have had exhaust and tune to the LS1. I don't know anyone in a 6 that is getting the same economy, one of the guys at work can't get below 11 in his 6 and he is mainly on the highway. It is all in how the car is driven, the 8 is just as good as the 6, until you start getting heavy footed

apparently it is 75L... but some argue the VZ tanks is only 60 :p
Vt is said to be 75, but when i had it cleaned, i put 5 litres in to get to the servo, would only take another 61...that 9 litres could get me another 9 km's!

Im getting 9lt/100km 60% highway 40% city on E10 in a S1 VN auto with cat back exhaust, VR memcal, VR injectors, VR coilpacks. Ive heard that fuel economy is best with the auto commodores if you dont go above 2000rpm which I would have to agree with. Those figures are what I get if I drive below 2000rpm.

Minux wouldn't that extra 9 litres get you approx. another 93.75km's seeing your fuel consumption is 9.6 Litres per 100km's ?:whistling
