    Since the 6.2 has been around for a few months now, it would be interesting to see what fuel consumption figures people are getting.

    Average for mine as a daily, mostly highway and occasional peak hour is 12.6L per 100K (auto).

    Our best is just over 12L /100..mix of new car fun but a fair percentage of that was some slow - yawn yawn- :( Adelaide hills) "driving"..95 fuel. 16 LS3 Redline..auto
    "Around town, as a daily driver"...more ..as you would expect.
    Just did our last fill up with 98...wait and see...we think it will be a waste of money though.

    For the average person living in the suburbs, I would be surprised if anyone got under 13L. If they do then they live in the sticks, or just plain lying.

    Redline wagon...60% highway driving....17L/100KM

    I should probably add that I've owned the car for only 5 days now and drinking the free fuel it came with ;)

    With mine, it has 4000k's on her with the W375 fitted pre-delivery. Average of 12.6 could be due to the better tune and only using BP98.

    14.1l/100km around town. W375 (auto) driven mainly with the paddles. Think mine runs a bit rich down low with 5600kms on clock and tune touch up due at 10000km.

    I'm definitely Joe Public when it comes to mechanics etc but my understanding is as the engine loosens it is possible to throw more timing at it than the original tune. Guess it allows for the generation of more power and greater operating efficiency?!

    Hahaha yeah I saw this and immediately went out and reset my trip metre and went for a drive this morning. Might be able to achieve 12-13s if I don't stop at any lights but 13-14s I think is where I'll sit with moderate and occasional heavy pedal pushing.

    Does the VF II use heaps more fuel than the VF it replaced? I get reliable average of 9.8l/100km with 25% heavy city traffic and the other 75% freeway using 98 which gives the highest range to a tank compared to 91, E10/95 and E85.

    Since I did this comparison I converted to LPG and had it tuned - I get around 13.5l/100km using LPG

    Series II dropped DoD, so will use more fuel than a series I VF V8.

    DoD is more marketing than real-world savings isn't it?
    With the ability of engines to dribble along in ultra-lean mode in the sorts of conditions DoD is used, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if stuff like a freer-flowing exhaust &/or a set of extractors might improve fuel economy more than DoD does?

    We know that using the official fuel tests the LS3 uses more fuel, but I think "heaps more" is very unlikely (as in, I don't believe real-world figures from L76 to LS3 will be as large a difference as the official figures).

    1100km on mine now, and I am averaging 13.1 L/100 Km, mainly suburban daily driving, but I have really been enjoying the car ;)
