It improved it heaps mate. Nudge wink.
May as well call it a VF Commodore Prius V
My series 1 sounded like a prius before upgrades!
In regard to bi modal, do your cars use more fuel with it on or off or about the same.
As a consequence, is there any power loss or gain?
I haven't looked too closely, but I think mine is a bit more thirsty with it on and no noticeable power gain.
It probably uses more fuel coz you use the loud pedal more when bimodal is on.
Doesn’t the system run rich and dump a little more fuel on overrun when in performance mode (so you get a few crackles and pops or a better exhaust note)? Or is that feature of the LE models only?
Guess such a feature would use a little more juice.
My Vf2 would be the first Ls I didn't notice a massive change in fuel economy after tune(normal around 1 to 1.5L better) but I am only at 6000kms avg is 11.5 for a manual mostly highway kms around 70%
Hi guys, i just recently bought a Vf Series 2 SS Redline that already had the OTR and full exhaust system fitted( i assume it was tuned as well) with a dyno chart reading 377 rwhp and 670NM. After reading through various posts, that sounds about right. After having some fun over the first few days, i reset the trip meter and checked my fuel consumption. On a 50/50 mix of freeway\suburban driving taking it easy, i' was getting 14.2 L per 100kms, which seems high to me, especially considering the mods already installed. I'm running 98 octane fuel.
I have noticed a fuel smell from the exhaust after turning it off. Any chance it's running rich if was tuned?
I'd get a dyno run for a check up, shouldn't smell fuel to much just when cold and cats heating up.
How are morpowa? might use them for a dynotune later on.
Not sure mate they’ll be first on my list for a chat when I’m ready to get work done on my car.
Your right, it does dump a minute amount of fuel in to get the snap crackle and pop. But according to Holden press, not enough to alter fuel economy. I beg to differ.....
I see my fuel tends to go up 1 to 1.5lt per 100 km with it on.
Can highly recommend them. Simon & Josh are highly experienced
Here's mine after a Melbourne to Sydney run at 100 kph on the cruise control

Is that for 25km or 100km? You have no shown the measurement used to obtain that result.
^ It’s always interesting to see what the ltrs/100kms is measured/averaged over, be it 25, 50 or 500km AND also the average speed (presumably over that measure).
Without such extra info, ltrs/100kms is a little less meaningful you know, apples and orange in part
I got 6.2 L/100Km once......the car was free falling.
...still not bad for accelerating at 9.8m/s^2...
It's funny how these cars read 2-3l while idling but every other car I've seen reads 0.
Per hour though..probably more accurate than the cars that claim to use zero fuel at all despite their engine running..
