    My rental Impala that I have for a week:

    Cruising at 165 km/h - 8.5 L / 100 km

    At 120 km/h - 7 L / 100 km

    better than the G35...

    My 95 Volvo turbo:
    7.4L/100 (32MPG) @ 110km/h
    6.5L/100 (36MPG) @ 140km/h
    15.3L/100 (15.4MPG) Average per tank

    I was shocked that my car was doing better milage at 140! Unless my Gauge is messed up.


    87 Jag XJ6:

    11.2L/100 (21MPG) @110

    Jag is a thirsty bitch!

    usually get 550-575 km per tank (75 L) for normal city driving

    but went on the beyond cruise and got awesome milage/L
    spent almost 35-40 L and got close to 350 km out of that

    No. You want litres per 100km, so litres over kilometres. In this case it is 60L / 550km (x100km) = 10.91L/100km.

    Thanks. That's horrible mileage. I think it may actually be 500 kms

    Okay, now that I've just filled up, I have some numbers for my car.

    Car: 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i hatch
    Fuel Economy Seen: 8.2L/100km or 28.68MPG (imperial)
    Over what Distance: 667.5KM
    Driving Note: All city mileage, Driving Miss Daisy style (ie: no speeding, no heavy acceleration, shifting at 3000RPM except in gears 4 and 5, coasting on neutral whenever possible).

    I wonder what else I have to do to get 8.0L flat! Hahaha

    I've rarely taken the V on any decent trips, only drive it in the nice weather and mostly spirited city driving. Lowest I've seen (instantaneous reading) is 8L/100km cruise set to 95km/h on Hwy 3 in BC. Highest I've seen is WOT, its.... gulp..... 49L/100KM But more relevent, 300km up the highway keeping up to a BMW and MB flying past everyone 20L/100km, then the return trip cruise set to 120km/h got me double that, 10L/100KM. Since getting the car my average is 18L/100km

    Its definetly a thirsty car, and drinks 94 when I can find it. Wich is why I drive my Beretta's as daily drivers they get 26 and 31mpg on the highway, V6 auto and 4Cyl manual.
    Who needs AWD?

    ...... and have since bought an AWD suv

    7.8L/100km from Cranbrook to Nelson in my 2007 Impreza 2.5i, going 110 to 125 with a few high rev passes...could probably get it down closer to 7.1L/100km (ie 40mpg) if the speed limit and no passing was involved.

    I do mostly highway driving since I use my bike for basic groceries and short commutes.

    On my C5, I'll get 7.3L/100km (~32MPG) and I'll get 30MPG on my Legacy GT. Both use 91 octane.

    I got my personal best this weekend! Made it all the way to Vernon before I had to fill up. Went ~128km/h until the park, and then ~105km/h after that.

    9.9L/100km!
