Re: wots your average mpg

Just filled up the car - managed 319.2 miles to the tank. No idea what the average mpg is from that. The needle was just above the empty line - no warning lamp on though. Filled it up and it only took just over 45 litres??? Reading the manual I think my 53 plate WRX has a 60 litre tank so I must have had quite a bit left in it.

Anyway the above mileage was a struggle (and very boring to do). I'm sure this tank will be in the early 200's.

Re: wots your average mpg

Who cares about fuel consumption, these cars are fantastic way better than 95% of the cars on the road and they are more than worth it for the smile factor alone.
I have also got a 1969 dodge charger 426 hemi, i took it out of garage once to air off and put 5 litres of petrol in it took it out of garage and left it ticking over for no more than 5 mins and it ran out a total distance travellled of 50ft.

Re: wots your average mpg

I got 550 Km from a tank last week. Thats nearly 350 miles, including mountains but no motorway which is probably why.

Classic STi RA gives me around;

24mpg average (general driving with serious blips and the odd >5000rpm in fifth on the motorway).

28mpg being good on the motorway.

9mpg having fun!
