Hey guys

I have recently installed my CAI and apart from giving it to the car a bit cos it sounds awesome lol.

ive noticed fuel consumtion is a little higher and was expecting fuel consumption to be better with the increased air flow.

I was wondering what mods you guys have and your average fuel consumptions.

I was about 8 to 9 L/100km now running about 9 to 10 or 11L/100k.

what are you doing / whats your average

i think you'll find that your driving style has changed but you haven't noticed! it'll be a guess but i'm thinking your changing gears later or giving the car more so that you can hear the intake! lol :-)

i'm on about 11-12L but thats becuase i always redline every gear every chance i get. when my partnr drives it during the week its about 9L-10L!

You can also view the real time graph in the display when your cruising along.

I have it on the real time graph thing when I'm cruising down a motorway and with cruise control on. It does get a bit distracting though

Hi All,

You all have generally pretty good consumption rates.

Freeway with some hilly bits, i got around 7.2. Although around town 10 - 12.

I actually thought that around town would have been a little bit better, considering I dont drive too aggressively.

You probably reset it while your on the freeway :) I do alot of city driving in Sydneys crappy traffic so my average is like 9-12 :(

I've only managed to see lower figures that during winter months where probably the air is more denser.

lol...... i actually get 5.2 freeway when i can contain myself but the risk of dying of boredom is not worth that saving so my freeway usage is more like 7L although thats not a lot either! :-)

correct...it doesn't matter how you look at it, for the size and weight of the car it's really good.

10.7l/100lkm after having my trip rest following dash removal in Jun'10 for rattle fix. Was running 10.4 prior to that but with a fair bit of fwy travel.

Tank average tends to be 11.4-11.7 with mostly short trips (15-20 mins to work and back).

I have an F Sport intake and Magnaflow rears installed and use the paddles a lot.

Not sure how people consistently achieve sub 10l/100km - the 250 is a thirsty little sucker when you 'explore' its potential.
