2007 Aurion gets:

Around 7.6L/100kms @ 90KPH

Around 9.9L/100kms @ 120kph on a 600 km leg with a 30-40kph head wind. Went down to 8.9l/100kms on the return leg.

The newer generation Aurion are surprisingly economical for a V6 car. Before purchasing my Aurion, I toyed with the idea of getting the camry, then decided on the Aurion Instead.

I just love the driving dynamic of the V6 car. It feels solid and has heaps of grunt. 

Very happy with the V6.

I know that my fuel consumption on the open highway is dependent upon the number of overtakings between fuel stops.

With few overtakings at 100kph, I also achieved around 7.6L/100kms in my 2006 Aurion which was on the Newell Highway [flat country, not hilly]. 

Also adjusting driving style to better use the overtaking lanes and timing to overtake to minimise harder acceleration pays off in the fuel consumption.

Yesterday, 7.55L/100kms Brisbane to Warwick, then got an astounding 5.516L/100kms Warwick to Inglewood in very optimal conditions @ 100kph and no overtaking. Inglewood to Gurley went up to 8.186L/100kms. Different driving @ 110 kph and a few overtakings makes a difference. Gurley to Coonabarabran back to an estimated 7.3L/100kms with less overtaking. On the open highway, I mainly use cruise control then disconnect to slow down for the changed speed limits without the need to brake, in most cases.

Going to refuel in Wagga Wagga this afternoon, so expecting the longer driving distance will be around the expected 7.6L/100kms.

MY11 gets 12.5L around town, pretty sedate driving. Highway not sure yet as i couldnt work out how to bring up the consumption meter when i first bought the car driving back

If you are light on the foot it can reward you with excellent numbers. I have between 8-9lt around town. 

Freeway runs with good flow often yields 5ish .

Gotta love the V6 !

Thats better than factory figures Tony? I drive with a light foot and 12.5 is the best i can get which is reasonable for a 1500kg 200kw V6. Better than 19.5L i was getting in my previous car lol

Ended up being 7.9L/100 kms over 576 kms so represents a good personal benchmark for sedate highway driving.

Me too - here in NZ, with a little urban driving, mostly on open rural roads and highways, but with hills. I average around 8.7 on short-ish runs, but drops to 8.3 on longer runs, and if I'm gentle it can get as low as 7.7 on a long flat run (Canterbury plains) . Gauge on mine currently says 8.6 ....

It's very, very good for a large V6 sedan, and fantastic combination of power and economy, hitting the throttle will flash past almost anything in the way... Even a fairly hard run over some of NZ's nastier roads through the mountains and hairpins, overtaking trucks etc, typically gives me around the official 9.3, but I do sometimes find the Sport mode a bit annoying.

But if you're struck in traffic on your daily commute, it's hard to get close to these numbers, a large engine and autobox just can't compete with a tiny manual (or an EV !) in a crawl.

Here are a few factors that can affect your fuel consumption, note that a few could be considered 'myths' but either way I thought they would be good to mention (in no particular order):

1. Engine condition - has it been serviced recently? Changed fuel filters etc..

2. Poor engine oil - this one might be considered myth but there are thoughts that if you use the wrong grade of oil  (too thick) at certain temperatures moving engine parts won't move as freely as they should which leads to greater use of petrol. 

3. Bad fuel quality - self explanatory, poor fuel quality can mean more fuel consumption.

4. Driving with the air-con on - this can lead to extra engine load hence more fuel consumption.

5. Bald tyres - less traction = more engine load = more fuel consumption.

6. Over loading - again fairly self-explanatory.

7. Driving style - drive like a mad man with your full flat to the floor all the time and your fuel consumption will naturally increase.

Hope these help.

I have found that using premium 95 in my 2013 Presara (GSV50R) gives better fuel consumption than 91/92 octane. I generally average 7.5l / 100km. In my previous 2007 Camry Sportivo I regularly averaged 6.5 l/100km even when fully loaded using 95 octane.

Spend an extra $6 per tank for premium, which wouldve bought an extra 4.6 litres of 91 @ $1.30L

Then think how many km's 4.6 litres of 91 would got you..... Is premium actually that economical?

Premium can't hurt i guess, but for the money, it's not worth it or necessary in these cars.

Most Euro cars demand 95 as a minimum and for good reason, so they don't ping.

The Aurion will get by just fine with RON91.

I have been using E10 for a few years now and it gets as good a mileage you would from using 98, which i have used too.

Not worth the extra dough to fill the coffers of the petroleum bandits.

My imported 2grfe requires 95 ron. As per instructions from the Japanese manual.  In a car that weighs 1.7ton fitted with u660e (6 spd auto) Driving around town lightly i get around 11.5L/100. Highway drops to 8L/100

If it's compatible with E10, you can use that instead of paying the highway robbery premium prices.

I don't get why your imported model requires premium anyway. Is it a higher compression or something ?

From what I have read it comes down to fuel quality particularly sulfur content. Apparently, Australian fuel is a poorer standard compared to EU standards. Also because of different octane measurements/standards, 87 octane fuel in USA is about the equivalent of 91 RON here in Australia.
