Don't know about the Chally - will pay more attention and see how it goes.

I know my HQ Ute with a 202, 3.08 diff does about 7km/L - thirsty as all hell.

*** cough cough ***

632 cubes
10.7 Litre engine
1050 3 circuit Dominator
3000 stall
TH400
3.55 gears
28" tall rears

55 litre tank

Yet to get 100 K's from a tank.

Closest I have got was 87 K's

My goal was 100 - 120 K's per tank (calculated before I started), which may be possible when I get the dominator off and the two Demons on (fingers crossed)

Lucky bugger. If mine's anywhere near half I know can only drive for 20mins - Drops FAST from there. and tank is empty when guage showing 1/4 (as I found out first time I picked it up...). Have had to use the lil' jerry in the boot about a dozen times still though... Have never had the balls to calculate the L/100 - Luckily no tripmeter so makes less tempting

Serious holy sh*t some of these mileage figures are off the scale lol

Some scary numbers there especially Chris'

I feel bad that my daily driver weighs 2 ton & consumes 8-9L per 100km

lol


But that's diesel for you.

Nah my issue there was thinking Gembrook would have a servo...still can't believe it's 20k's from Gembrook to the nearest servo. Hence the new rule fill up immediately upon leaving home, not at destination !!!

x2 on the above, don't really drive the streeter's enough to worry about fuel consumption.

off the scale is the fuel consumption on the race car - about 2.5lt of Roo16 each pass, or in $ value - about $30 a pass

Fuel sponsorship for next season anyone ??
