I think I managed around 10 litres per 100Ks, however the loud pedel calls and often was much less than that!

Motorway, way less around town, but again how low depends on how you drive!

Hi, 97 3L Super Custom Auto. 12.27 litres per 100k around town or 46.5 litres for 379ks. No highway figures yet. Cheers.

hi thanks again hope my math is correct - so thats

100 k divide by 12.27 = 8.15 k to the litre --- approx 5 litres to gallon

so 8.15 x 5 = 40.75 kiloms to gallon

roughly 40.75 x 0.642 = 26.16 miles to gallon as rough calculation less a bit for good measure


= around early twenties to the gallon around town maybe call it 22 mpg to be fair


anyone got the motorway figure ????

Your not too far off the mark with 20-25 mpg. Again as Clive says depends on how you drive.
