excellent fuel economy
« on: 01 January 2011, 05:04 AM »
well, i did some calculations

my 6.9 just returned impressive fuel consumption figures on my long drive, which did include some, but not much stop start driving.

I just filled the car again and put in 82 litres to the top.
from that fuel i got 460k's which equates to 17.83L/100ks or 5.61km/litre

Thats really not that bad.

According to that's what I get in my daily commute.

Not bad at all.

1976 450SEL, 116.033  Sold it to buy a '97 Crown Vic.  Made sense at the time.
1971 250C, 114.023      Sad but true, it's gone to a new home.
1976 280C  Stolen by the City of Seattle, sort of.
1970 250/8, traded in on a 1993 Land Rover Disco
