Hey all you 202 owners out there, i havent seen this thread yet, so im just wondering what economy you get out of your 202, either in kilometres per tank or litres per 100 k's, your choice

If your car is still stock and factory parts u can get an easy answer.

if it has other mods etc, eg extractors, holley. efi etc well things will change.

There's a topic in this forum somewhere, might have to search for it, has an image with stock commodores fuel eco.

Anyone know how much it would cost to fill up enough to go 160kms in a stock VB with 202 engine?

Not correct goon as cars age they use more petrol. I'll get about 300-360 out of 60l tank hard to tell as the float doesn't work properly. It read only 3/4 full when full and empty with half a tank. But to work and back is 280k's a week plus other driving and a tank lasts a week

Depends on your where your driving if its more highway style i'd say half a tank would be plenty mine's a manaul so i think i get better economy than an auto when i drive normally

Another eg. Extractors might increase your city usage, giving u more eco and may down your highway usage, using more fuel.

Going on a highway, how much $$ of petrol would need to be used? I know I can work it out by dividing a full tank in half but I don't know the fuel economy of a stock red 202.

just a question...what size in litres is a 202?...got a mate with a 202 kingswood who reckons he can drag anything in it...i keep reminding him that my 3.8 is bigger, more efficient and more powerful...i know the last two are true...

202 = 3.3

Though maybe the blue 202's would have better fuel eco then a red 202? black would have the best eco?
