Did my big trip on the weekend. Confession, I used 98RON all the time. In saying that I averaged 5.4L/100km. That's just hiway driving, aircon on about 1/4 of that and cruise set to 105km. I'm freaking over the moon with it. 645km in a tank of 43L! Amazing!

This is the trip computers findings.

That or a really dodgy trip computer, which seems to be a growing trend here? I want Fords formular to see how they manage to get their results...

Rapids, definantly uses less fuel than my wifes, But his roads maybe alot better (ie hotmix). I really struggle to get it under 6.0 on most highways but have seen 5.3l/100 inside the city on the freeways however it wouldn't do anywhere near that with the aircon on. Cruising a rough surface highway can often average 6.4l/100. I was expecting mid 5.5s on any kind of road given Fords figures but I'm feeling that they are somewhat of a lie :S. My Friends Honda Jazz makes 5.4 on the same highways that I can't get under 6.0 on at the same speeds. I don't think we could make the trip to Melbourne and back on one tank (700kms) it would get close but I really think we would be out of fuel before we made it back

This is the trip computers findings.
If the 645km is the estimated distance to empty on the trip computer when you refil, and based on my experience that thgere is about 2 litres left when this hits zero, I would estimate you are getting 41/6.45 or about 6.3 to 6.4 L/100km. You meter is reading 14-16% low - similar to my and others experience.

There' nothing wrong with 6.3 L/100 km on the highway, it just not as good as 5.4.
