Hi all

I would like to know what liter per km or economy figures some of the other members get?

Currently I am sitting below 400km per tank of 60 liters, and my car seems to running very rich.

Regards

Hi Willem,
My NA manual use +- 9 l/100 km.
Yours sound like a turbo that is working hard!

Are you doing lot's of city traffic driving? An auto with torque-converter is not very economical then. On my 3.6 Outback with CVT I can get 9l/100km easily on the open road, but slow dorp traffic driving easily becomes 14l/100km...
