I thought, hopefully, the TG guys are doing their comparison in which car uses the most fuel, so I think we can have that as well ;-)

What was the most your car has ever drunk... But something like on a longer trip or a trackday... No 40 litres if I would be accelerating all day long...

Mine would be 9 litres\100km - 31 mpg

In winter time my beast (Golf III, haha) drinks like mad ;-)

...if you cann it all day
Huh ? Not sure what you mean by that ? :huh:

But here goes:

My Neon on a long trip will go as long as 700 to 720 km on a 42, 43 litres tank of gas. Or about 6.25 l./ 100km ( 37.63 miles per gallon ).

At the max, driving with lots of hard accelerations and mainly city driving, it gets as bad as 10.5 l./ 100km ( 22.40 miles per gallon ).

I typically get around 7.5 l./ 100km ( 31.36 miles per gallon )on a year round basis. This is from seven and a half years of looking up fuel consumption numbers, to get a heads up of a potential problem... and by curiosity.

I don't drive as hard as I used to and I guess the 2.0l DOHC engine in there is pretty good, more than expected when I bought it. :)

** edit. For US members and everybody's benefit,I used Google's calculator to convert the numbers. **

I think that's continuous hard driving. the km/L Jostyrostelli quoted is a bit confusing, but I managed to convert it to L/100km. I thought only the Americans measured how far they can go on a certain Volume of fuel (miles per gallon), whereas the rest of the world measures how much it uses in a fixed distance (L per 100km)?
 
Depends how I use it.
If I drive a lot of long streches of highway (which is rare), I can get around 24mpg.
Usually it's about 15-16mpg though. :evil:
 
my 240sx gets about 27 mpg on the highway which is pretty shitty for a 4 banger.
my old car (nissan 200sx aka 2 door sentra) got extremely good fuel economy but was sooooo slow. it got over 40 mpg highway.

My dad used to have a stock 200sx that would do around 120 mph, which seemed quite fast for that type of car. I don't think it got 40 mpg on the highway though, are you sure about that number? Sounds almost like a diesel :) Maybe that's driving like jeremy drove that Audi....

My wife has a Toyota Sienna that gets 35mpg on the highway and that's reeally good for a minivan.
 
i have an american 200sx. it has a 1.6 L I4. its fwd. it looks like this but in red.

ahh, my dad's was a late 80s model, also US (I'm from Michigan). It was a zippy little car for what it was.
 
As much as 30 mpg on the highway, as low as 14 during the winter and hard driving :)
 
heh, I get about 15mpg with normal city driving, and 20 or so with highway driving, pretty much year round. Oh well, I guess thats what happens when you drive a truck :-\
 
Just worked out my car's: 16mpg - ouch. Pretty poor for a 4-cylinder lightweight Landy with about 40hp. :?

If anybody's got any advice on how to save petrol I'm all ears! :lol:

Oh BTW, I used UK gallons, not US gallons in working it out.

No car, no fuel 8)
same here :?
my bicycle consumes 1pair of jeans every month + a couple of kilograms of washing powder to get rid of the oil stains :lol: :lol: :lol:
 
With my occasional agressive flooring, i do 10L/100km on my 1.6 suzuki vitara ('96)
 
I usually get pretty good economy with my Altima, around 25mpg under normal driving on the highway at 80mph, a bit less if I'm givin' in some stick but, I don't too that too often. ;)

What really annoys me is soccer moms in their big SUVs flogging the 95mph limiter all the time, while I'm driving relatively conservatively. Completely unsafe if they needed to make a quick manuveur, and very wasteful of the petrol resources especially the V8 SUVs.
 
My truck gets about 12mpg in the city, and about 18 on a long trip.
