I've just filled my petrol tank, driven almost exactly 100km then re-filled the tank. It took 15.9 litres. I have done all local driving with no journey more than 15km. Is this about normal? What are other people getting from their V6's on local driving?

15.9l/100km isn't too bad then? I think I may have a couple of sticky injectors as the car is really lumpy at idle but runs much smoother as soon as I give it a bit of throttle.

I have gotten from my last 3 tanks..
455km-478km-430km. Fill up with about 66-67 litres.
Thats an average of 14.5l/100 I'm happy with that.
I'm a local driver the only time i get on the freeway is for 5min to go to the shopping centre at Airport west.

I might have to sort the injectors and then see what I get! I was surprised it was as high as it was since I drive pretty carefully.

Around town I normally get about 11.5L/100km on the open road I normally get about 9L/100km, I have had it as low as 7.5L/100km.

Doing time trials on a mountain road in the Victorian Alps I did get it out to 17L/100km.

It's a manual though, so that helps a bit.
