Anyone else want to make it a two day event?

Well close, it's only about 30 feet from the road in Sylvains tarp garage with the head at kerry's garage and the turbo in Sylvains garage on the floor. I'm hopeing that in 3-4 weeks i'll actually be able to drive it that 30 feet to the road and have 300rwhp while doing it. *rockout*

But seriously i thnk 4 weeks is reasonable could be a little longer depending on kerry as well as my exam schedule. on the safe side i'll just say 5 weeks*angel*

Hey man, we don't usually meet downtown...although that would make my life easier since I live down there haha.

We meet not too far from Downtown though if you want to stop by...I'm sure there won't be too many people there this time of year, but worth a try.

Here are the google directions from the 417 comming from downtown. This will take you to a shopping plaza with a zellers, and a red lobster and some other stuff. We meet by the Tim Hortons in that lot, right by the corner of Merivale and Meadowlands.

It seems there are a bunch of us regulars that always show, then there are others that rotate when they come. If they all were to come at the same time, there would be a shit load of us. lol

They usually post more details closer to the date, but judging from past years, it generally starts early morning around 8am and we finish lunch around 1:30pm at our destination, and then it's a "find your own way home" kinda deal. So usually there are a bunch of us that cruise back to Ottawa and get back around 4ish give or take.

Well...yes I 'could' get worse milage if I really tried, but I don't even think I could get that bad milage no matter how heavy the foot. @ 250km/tank I'd be getting 28L/100km:D

Jamil20
03-29-2007, 11:02 AM
Your tank must be like 120L to get 750kms out of it :)

60L of gas won't get me to 500kms, and I find driving with a heavy foot or like a granny doesn't affect it too much. Maybe there's something wrong with my car. :)

Nascar318is
03-29-2007, 11:18 AM
^^ When on cruises you burn less gas, I usually get around 450+ a tank in normal everday driving, but on cruise I'll get close to 600km+. It's like my ford.. I get maybe 350-375 on a tank, but when I went to tennesse on the weekend I was getting 600km+ per tank..

chromius
03-29-2007, 11:19 AM
It's 70L with a 10L reserve. Now that it's gotten a bit warmer, I'm getting around 11L/100km with mixed city/hwy and I'm driving it somewhat hard.

On longer highway trips I was seeing 8L/100km's or less @ 130km/h+ :) Gotta love the long gearing.

You should be easily able to get to 500km's with a 60L tank I would think.

Jamil20
03-29-2007, 11:26 AM
I'm 100% city driving and use the remote starter to let the car idle on cold days. :)

Don't do long cruises. So that's probably why I don't see a lot of KMs out of my tank.

Thanks for the advice, Bro. I'm waiting for some good weather before I attempt taking a lot at any of those. I don't have access to a garage so everything has to be done in my parking lot. It's hard to work with the wooly mits on in the winter. :)

And no, the car doesn't roll back on hills, but it's an auto(I imagine that's a big drain on gas). I need to look at all the sensors and filters soon. I just got the car and while there are a lot of maintenance records, There have not been that much in the last year or two. I'm no mechanic by any means, but I don't mind getting my hands dirty. :)

I was heading to Ottawa on the 27th for my best buddy's 21st birthday and I passed a white E30 and a mint looking 2002 on highway 7... Part of the cruise?
