I mean to ask, i4 or v6, sorry lol.
you get 650km per full tank?
ya, it ends up being around 28mpg, cant remember what l/100km it is, but my drive to work and back was 15 min on the highway each morning so it was maybe 30%highway driving and 70% city driving.

For the record, I've been using a web service called MyMileMarker that tracks your fuel economy, mileage, and expenses online. It's located at My Mile Marker. Whenever you fill up, you enter the odometer reading, gallons this fillup, and price per gallon, and it sticks it into a few different graphs for you. Makes projections, all kinds of stuff. And the cool thing is, I can submit my fillup quantities with a text message using my cell phone, through Twitter, and they update my info automatically on the website. So I can do it on the spot, at the pump, and not have to remember to enter my info on the computer later - it's already done.

How much gas does a full tank actually hold?


Also, what are ways to keep the consumption to a minimum (auto, v6)? (coasting after pushing the pedal... etc,)

i think our tank is 55L or so...

i get about 12L/100km... but i drive a lot in a city..

i usually accelerate moderate tillabout 65, and let it go in a 4th gear on about 15oo rpm, i have to keep pedal slightly pressed, otherwise it stays at about 1650-1700.... i duno if it is right, but that is how i do it

I get any where between 400 - 500 a tank.

I'm not 'granny' with the gas peddle either. ;)

hence why you NEED a good tune to account for your mods. (and when I say tune I mean dyno of course)


as for me, I get about 500kms to a tank, sometimes less, my car is a pain because of the IMRC issues I have...that should be fixed next summer though. Got the part, just need to drop it in :)
