hi guys im looking at buying a 98 supercharged vt v6 and i was wondering, would it use more fuel then a v8?

also which would be faster a supercharged 6 or a v8? reason i ask is because me and my mate had a debate over it and i said that the supercharged 6 would win and he said the 8 anyone know?

thanks heaps guys, sorry but i don't know much about this stuff :(

Cheers :)

The exact fuel economy depends on the model, but the Supercharged 6 is generally only half a litre or a litre or so more per 100km's than a stock V6, with the V8 adding an extra litre or so on top of that as well...

So a supercharged 6 is more fuel efficient than the V8 around the City, but highway the V8 can get better fuel economy!

their both within a bees dick of each other, but the s/c v6 will pull in slightly better results providing you keep your right foot away from the floor.

On the highway a 5.7 tuned can get down to 8.29l/100km ;)
