You may find that you are giving it a blasting at the minute so petrol is going down rapidly (i found this ).... when you calm down a bit (if that ever happens :wink: :shock: ) youll see the petrol consumption get better... My99 was averagin around 19 around here.... when i first had it was around the 13/14 mark (and that was shocking) :shock:

What petrol ar u using?

i would get some super unleaded stuff in there as it could affect performance of the car slightly.... + Look forward to the pics, if you get loads you can include in the gallery if you wish (same as the japfest gallery_ )

Triplezoney,
Bet you wish beer was the same price as petrol.
Don't know what the price of a UK litre of petrol is at the moment, so lets use 90p/litre for arguments sake.
That's 90p for 1.7597888 pints :shock:
I could get absolutely smashed on a fiver
Could go out with a tenner in my pocket, get bladdered and have enough for a kebab on the way home too.
Lets start a campaign to reduce the cost of beer to match the petrol price :wink:

petrol

Yeah, it's great fun when you first get your car TZ - blasting around everywhere - then after you've had it about a year - you'll still be blasting around everywhere

I would def put some 98Ron in, wouldn't use anything else in ours :shock:

I agree, I would put the best stuff in your car that you can, especially if the RB5 uses more aggressive ECU parameters. What is recommended for the RB5?

And over here across the pond we can get beer cheaper than fuel, but I don't want to make you guys jealous. :P 93 octane fuel is about $2.10/gallon right now, and many bars here sell $1.50 draft beer almost all night! Woohoo! :drunk
