11l/100km not paying attention to you driving. I've seen figures as low as 8.4 when I do 90-100kph.

Hi thanks Steve.
That good for a large family SUV.
Any other replies on this will be welcome as I haven`t driven a 3.0 myself.
My brother had one, and talked about 10l/100km.
We all drive different, the more different feed backs the more informed we are.

Why these questions about fuel consumption?
You wanted a Fozzie (or Subaru), live with it, enjoy it. I'ts not a Diahatsu Sirion or VW Up(- your whatever) :o, that only takes a sip of petrol once a week.  ;D ;D ;D

You get: fun/pleasure/lekker roads to travel/.......

I like my Foz, even if it costs me petrol money/parts..

Wife's clio 3 gets 14km/l in town, my XS gets 9km/l around town...but boy, do I have fun going to work and back...and not to mention weekends...

So you right...who cares! Must say though...since changing plugs,air filter and a new O2 sensor, my fuel consumption is MUCH better
