Chassis: p10 sedan
Engine: sr20de
Transmission: RS5F32V FM41
Tyre Pressure: 37/37
Performance/Economy mods: pod filter
Driving Style: sometimes have heavy foot around town, usually economical on open road
Urban Fuel: 8.8L/100km
Highway Fuel: 7.45L/100km (only measured properly once - pretty confident I could get below 7L/100km if I drove carefully)

Checked my odo as well, it appears to be accurate to within 1%

It's entirely the way he drives - I get the same economy as him with 4WD and a turbo!

I dont even get 600 when i do highway driving and thats when im most economical.  Although i get my hopes up when i get over 300 for the first half tank. Second half never lasts long enough

Are the VE engines normally more economical than DE? Theoretically they should be I guess due to having less of a compromise with regards to camshaft profiles.

I don't entirely drive slow

I get to the speed limit and stick to it..

My style maybe. Not completely stopping as I give way etc.

Plus. I live in Hamilton. Completly different roads. I get 350 km just to the top half tank

VE makes it easy to cruise round under 3 grand. i reckon you could really string out a tank on a VE if you tried.

I find with my sr18de you have to get it up to 4 grand to get to the torque out of the motor. that's not great on fuel really.
