Km's on a full tank

Recommended Posts

Warning lamp comes on after about 600 if im city driving if im freeway I can get about 750 maybe 800 at a push but thats staying out of lift :P

Bear in mind though, city driving for me is 70% freeway (M5) traffic to contend with but you still get to cruise a bit, if I was driving like Paramatta Rd or something my fuel economy would go to ****.

1st tank of fuel 7.8 l/100km :)

2nd tank of fuel 8.4 l/100km <_<

i'm usually getting 550-600km a tank of fuel. almost 600 when i hardly use lift. when i use lift a bit..i get 500km. :(

and i'll be using octane boost every 2,000km. that's 1 tank out of 4 with about 100RON ;) :D

every single tank of fuel i write down how many km's and so on.

i've even got a spreadsheet if anyone is interested.

lucio_libre: that avatar is just way too distracting...must you torture us? ;)

My best is 740km (98% highway). Toyota say should get 8.5 l/100 (combined) but the best I can do is 8l/100 all highway.

Red Fuel light seems to come on very early, with about 10 litres still in tank. Although its bad for the car, I drove 80l on red light then still had 5 litres left. was in the country late at night and fuel stations had closed.

First tank, 620Klms, both city and freeway. Filled up only 49lt, has more to go, now on second tank. Up to 900Klms, used 1/4 tank. Gave a bit to enjoy lift zone. Pretty good.

What fuel economy is quoted by manufacturers is always conservative, if you get anywhere near it, your doing great. :D

Just wanna get an idea on how many K's should the rolla do on a full tank?

How many k's does ur car do on a full tank?

What model rolla are we talking about??? KE20, KE55, AE71, AE102, ZZE122?

In my blown AE82, i get around 400-450km from a 40l tank, that's city/country mix with a bit of spirited driving thrown in. I've never done a purely highway run, but i'd imagine i'd get a tad over 500kms.

Thanks mate. It's a picture of Liverpool footballers Robbie Fowler and Steve McMannaman taken in 1996(?). Robbie Fowler had been accussed of using cocaine, so after scoring a goal at Everton(the local rival club), he proceeded to taunt the Everton fans by snorting the touch line :lol:

When i used a bottle of octane boost i got more km's out of the tank...even when i drove it harder than normal. i was very surprised i got more when driving it a little hard. maybe having a higher octane fuel makes the car run more efficiently.

i've planned to use octane boost ONCE every 5,000kms. ;)

Yup, I remember that. I've been a Liverpool fans since John Barnes and Ian Rush days. What about you OneCamMan?

Yeah, i've been a Liverpool fan since i was a little kid. I went to Anfield in December 2001 to watch them play Ar5enal, but unfortunately they lost 2-1 :(

Edit - This language filter/blocker is so stupid. I can't even type the name a freaking football club :rolleyes:

Woah, you actually watched them live!

I met them when they came to Singapore a few years back. Shook the hands of Emile Heskey and Dudek. But the best part was meeting Ian Rush...he looked so different without his trademark moustache.

You must be driving the car hard GZE_Bandit to be only getting just over 400km. I average 550km plus with city driving. And premium is the only fuel to use.

Supercharged = super fuel usage :)

same here.. the old 4A engines are a simple design..

any unburn fuel just pops out of the exhaust :lol:

you guys have vvti and all this fuel effeciency crap in the new motors

all we have is inject, fire, waste
