Just thought it would be interesting to see what economy people are getting between different cars with different configurations.


I have a 1996 Primera

5 speed SR20DE


L/100 at last fuel up: 7.58
City:Country ratio:     65:35
Aircon on around 45% of the time


I have to say I am very happy with that.

The car is stock standard  ;)

Long term winter economy has gone to 7.2 ltrs/100kms

Last tank of 91 octane got me 606kms from 42ltrs = 6.9 ltrs/100kms.

Our stock P11 TE-V did 8.4L / 100km on a weekend trip to Tauranga which featured some, er, energetic driving.  It has now done 220,000km and the economy is still the same as when we got it.
Kieran: thank you for being amazing... Have my babies.
