I have the legacy 18 inch rims. This might also contribute.

Just BTW the very good economy was with a R250 bottle of NF Ultra in the tank... ::)

I also have better consumption when using my high boost maps, at 1.3 bar its the most economical.

So via that logic spending a bunch to fit a sti drivetrain and taking it up to 500+hp should make it very economical... I'm just phoning the bank quickly...

Hi Guys... I probably shouldn't post, cause we're not comparing apples with apples, but I do want to brag a bit... I commute 140km per day on the R21 between Centurion and Boksburg and when I filled up yesterday I took this pic for you... the range on the computer still showed 130km, but I wouldn't have tried it. It is on my 2014 2.5 X   NON TURBO

 Not too sure...  maybe someone else has an answer... I've heard that the new XT is also chain driven and fuel consumption is better than it used to be, but not sure by how much...

2010 SH facelift. It also became somewhat "longstroke" so the torque is better.

I have been keeping quiet, as 500km per tank is what I get on a bad day!
But then I am comparing pumpkins to apples!
My aim is to get 1000km from a tank one day, but to do that you are going to have to have perfect conditions and end up wishing you had some paint to watch drying.

Hahaha. Did 199.5km  on 23.13 l. Drove the speed limit. 50km was gravel road that was wet and muddy. That has to impact it somewhat.

Stock SG XT Manual + NF Red - Warning light normally comes on around 500km and it then takes 50 liters so still have 5 liters to spare driving in Cape Town traffic. On the N routes get around 450km per 50 liters but then normally fairly heavily loaded and traveling at a goodly speed.

Before NF use was lucky to get about 400 to 450 per tank full - sometimes 350 km. That's at the coast.
