Family holiday

Car was loaded 2 adults, kids, cases and Christmas presents. Used the trip counter A for total when departing and the B counter zeroing when filling to get a feel for l/100.

Threw 2 bottles of octane booster in the boot incase we got to a 95 free zone. Luckily didn't need them.

L/100 for the trip was 11.0 on the nose.
9.09 km per litre if my maths is correct.
Trip Distance incl. around town 1472km.
Stuck pretty close to the speed limit and
used both gps and speedo.

No drama.

Blackxt - are you originally from Richardsbay? I'm from RB, grew up there and finished matric, then moved up to Pretoria to study at Tuks and never left again.

Sorry to be so lame, scanned my phone and took no pics.
More just about consumption on the sh xt manual. Honestly
The car felt a little underpowered but it was loaded pretty heavy.

Hoped to do a bunch of mods before I left for the trip, but the
Tax man has been clutching his purse strings tight.

Possibly the best to just hold off until it needs to go in for
It's nest service and then take care of the mods.

Blackxt, I had my sh xt auto decatted and remapped before doing our 3000km plus trip to George and back to Jo'burg. Fuel consumption it to be confirmed but looks average at around 10. But, the car is definitely not underpowered. In fact I've got to concentrate to to have it run away if I'm not using cruise control. Have a chat to Chett.
