Quote from: BCDC on 20 July 2021, 09:35 PMThe fuel usage with the wonderful cars is never going to be great. It's a basic law of physics. These vehicles are HEAVY and this is the main reason for not brilliant fuel economy. Sure, it is best practice to get the thing running smoothly but you will never get outstanding economy even driving long distances at low RPM. Enjoy the car for what it is, a luxury saloon. When I first got mine I would work out the fuel usage when filling up but let that go a while ago, now I don't care and never think about it unless I read a post on this forum like this. I spend most of the time enjoying the experience of such a beautiful drive. I must admit that here in Australia we have access to 98 high octane fuel available almost everywhere, so I just fill her up with the best stuff and floor it. Enjoy the last gap of fossil fuels.BC
Quote from: revilla on 20 July 2021, 11:20 PMI hate when my accountant asks these type of questions. Wives/girlfriends have that bad habit too. Calculating and knowing fuel consumption figures and total repair/maintenance expenses in my mind is inversely proportional to the pleasure level of owning classic cars. I personally prefer ignoring them.
