I'm jealous of these numbers of the spec b owners have lol. I'd be stoked on 9s or 10s

I get on average 9.8l/100. Usually just get about 580/600'k per tank. Always on BP98.
Driving about 30% freeway and 70% stop/start traffic for 80ks per day.

I cruise around alot in 6th @ 60k/h to drop down the consumption.
Not super aggressive, always short shift, occasional drag off from the lines.

Freeway driving I think I got around 7.4-8L/100

99% sure my car has VIN tune (from STi Docklands) from the previous owner, hence the lower numbers, but still haven't confirmed that yet.

Catastrophic Sydney traffic due to earlier crash. Took me 1h6m to do my 11km daily....

You are a lead foot Shiv!

I get 13-15l/100 normally on 98ulp and it doesn't bother me at all.


If I was after economy, I would have bought a Prius.........on LPG.

So much truth in this sentence

I think I've been averaging 10.2 at the moment although its been getting a fair beating around town lately, the sweet sound of the H6 makes it so hard to keep it below 4k rpm :D

Vin only changes above 4000rpm in his tunes, under 4000rpm is stock

Just to chime in on this one I've had mine tuned to suit the S/C I had fitted and the fuel consumption is around 14-15L/100km on 100% suburban driving. This is a calculated value using distance travelled compared with fuel input.

The thing is the display says 7.0 -7.5L/100km on the trip meter! Is there any way to correct this!?

I do pretty much 98% suburban :(. Shortish trips and traffic etc. I'll average north of 15L/100km easily if it doesn't see any roads with a decent speed limit and less traffic. Interesting to see how the Kido tune will drop thus :D, I'm not expecting miracles but I reckon it will be noticeable.

Yeah we shall soon see! I have't done enough k's yet to tell, but he did easily adjust the fuel consumption correction value so the readout should be right now as well!

Just had just shy of a grands worth of maintenance work done to my 03 3.0R and I'm still sitting around 7km/l around town and usually get the fuel light around 370 380 although that is a mixture of peak hour traffic through town and back roads with my foot down come the weekend.

Looks like I'm gonna need kido's skills asap after I remove the cats which I suspect are clogged and open up the rest of the exhaust a bit.

I'm getting 13.4 / 100 around town in I mode. Put it into S and it goes to 14+, so S mode only lasted half a tank. Car has 140K km on it. Auto too which won't help, but I drive like your Nana. Gotta get a Tractrix cable and the software stuff sorted so I can log some runs and get some tuning done.

I get around 12 or 13 l/100km in inner Sydney, which isn't as bad as I was expecting honestly.
I feel like a tune will sort some of that out though
