Depends on the driving. Used as a shopping trolley, 1 1/2 Km each way, I get about 16.6 L/100K. 75% 'burbs/ 25% Hwy 12.2L/100K.
10%'burbs/90% Hwy I get 9.0L/100K.

I got 9 in freeways and 14.5 on suburbs, and 17 in city or tram road on peak hours

VE Omega sedan 3.0 2010
3.0 SIDI gets far better fuel economy than my 3.6 VZ.
Refuelled at Coffs Harbour; "low fuel" started beeping near Goulbourn; made it Canberra; refuelled there: 71.3 L.
I checked the manual: apparently it's a 73 L tank, so I had a bit to spare ... but not much.
Odometer said I'd covered 840 km, so that's 8.5 L per 100 km: of course that was mostly "highway" driving, except for the little bit in Sydney, between the two motorways.
Katherine to Tennant Creek: 675 km in 61 L, which I just calculated at 9.03 - but the air-con was probably working harder on that part of the journey, and I had the cruise control set on 117 (speed limit in NT is 130).
What I like is that the VE can make it from major-centre to major-centre without having to make fuel stops where petrol is ridiculously dear - and I regard that as another type of fuel economy.

i did a similar trip recently.... filled up at Canberra, went to Port Macquaire, drove around a few days, and filled up on the way home at Taree (starting beeping just as I pulled in)..... almost 900km... very impressed.
ok she's not a v8, but the little 3L SIDI is the best car decision I ever made. easily single digit L per 100km.... same fuel economy as mrs old Honda Jazz for godsake!

The only time I've hit single digits is the first day I got the car. Lowest I've gotten doing 117km/h on country roads is 10.1/100. Not really too impressed with the figures.

Btw it's a 2007 omega
