Just want to know approx kms per tank you guys are getting out of the 6cly falcons?

my DTE seems to always be out. Would 500kms be possible with this cars?

I drove from Brisbane to Newcastle on one tank with my XR6 (780km). That was not long after fitting a new O2 sensor, plugs, leads and coilpack which would have helped. Even with enthusiastic city driving I rarely saw less than 550km per tank, which is 70 litres in IRS sedans IIRC.

My car gets me from Geelong to Warrmambool and back on half a tank. That's roughly 360km's. In the city, a full tank gets me anywhere from 380km's to 450km's.

The tank is 68 litre, there's another thread on this page a bit further down listed as "AU fuel consumption" which goes into the same subject.:)

Never trust the DTE.....there's always a bit more in there!!!

I get approx 450 out of a tank with no freeway driving........with a bit of freeway driving it pushes this towards 550-600 per tank.....
