Hey guys,

(searched all over and can't find this for the life of me)

Still on my P's but when I go on opens I'm hoping to get a V8 and if i crap money I'd turbo/supercharge it.

I was just curious what the fuel consumption is on a charged V8? (model type regardless, just looking for a round figure)

Thanks alot for any help guys :)

If you have to ask about such things you can't afford it. Anything like that is going to use heaps - probably 20+ L/100 km if you do it right.

If you're going to drive it like you stole it all the time, your fuel consumption will be through the roof (regardless of which FI you choose). I live in the country so don't see bugger all traffic, but when I head down to Melb I see around 16-18L/100 (avg speed 30-40km/h). Highway/freeway driving I get low 9s. 'Spirited' driving I have seen 55-60L/100.

holy crap thats so much petrol! bet its worth it though haha
That's an instantaneous reading over a short period of time. But yes, it's a lot of fun nonetheless. I only drive the car once or twice a month so fuel consumption isn't really an issue.
