Fuel Consumption Comparison

Guys,

I think it will be very useful to know the fuel consumption figures of commonly used vehicles in SL.

A lot of people boast of very good mileage, when in reality it’s far from true. So PLEASE, post your

honest actual experience, based on how much fuel your vehicle/vehicles guzzles on colombo and outstation running.

Thanks

isuru, infact i was doing a cool drive towards matara, and my rex fuel meter did not even budge a bit.

I was just doing around 80 and didnt even go above 3500rpm ( I think turbo ons at 3700 )

Met Nigel at Hikkaduwa and that was it. It only took 15 min for us to go to matara and most of the time hitting 180. He was in his Type R. My Fuel meter went from FULL to Middle just for that 55 - 60km. You know nigs right. I just cannot drive the way he does. He is a very confident driver and takes bends at around 180 flat out.

We both almost got shot by a Ministirial Motorcade when we mistakenly overtook them. ( They just didnt want to accept that we were fast - get back a**holes or die ) :P LOL.

so we gave them the way...

Mazda RS does really well if you do not do hit the VVT zone.

same thing happened to me, i went past a motorcade on the way to kekirawa did not even notice until i saw a white gloved hand and the headlights on the defebder being on after i went past them, my dad nearly had a heart attack cause first he saw them behind me and then he saw the speedometer which was indicating 160, so i slowed let them pass then kept behind them and avoided etting copped all the way to kekirawa got there pretty quick, mind you this was a couple of weeks ago though... not the best idea now i most probably would have got shot, if i did it now,

on to another topic, the minister in this motorcade had an 4.4i BMW X5 as his ride escorted by two defenders and a prado that could not keep up to the other three, he was even behind me. ;) they seem to be wsitching to SUV's over the 7 series now..
