I get 400 kms tops out of one tank, which is about 50 L (what I pour in).

12.5L / 100

I thought it was air filter, changed it, fuel filter, changed it, all new plugs, god damn it's still burning too much and not making powers.

It just happened halfway through the summer. It feels like I lost 15-20 hp.

I suspect the bottom end is fubar (rings). I can't afford to do anything about it right now though. If I could I would be either stroking the M20 or swapping something 24V in.

man my engine still pulls strong... i'm nearing the 200 mark but yeah i get like 300 kms of gass and i have to fill up every 4 days ... well its gotten a little better. I replaced the rusted coupling from the filler tube b/c it used to leak gas on a full tank. then i got a bit more kms out of the tank when its full. Recharged the air filter not only does it pull better but i got a little more too. Well now i'm at like 320 km per tank. If its the fuel filter... i'll check it out tommarrow too.

you gotta consider the kind of driving.....idling, stop n go, traffic, short trips, etc.


My consumption went up alot also, but its around the 12.something mark now. Used to be in the 10s.

yeah when summer started it was at 11 or so...

weekdays:
I'm doing maybe 4 short trips from markham and 14th to markham and progress. Thats my daily driving.

weekend: short trip to work or the car just sits at home or goes out.

It rarely sees the highway honestly it sucks. I haven't passed 130 km/h in like 2 months

Man. I averaged around 14L/100km last night, only because I was doing a bonzai run to Woodbridge. 230km/h was involved, many times.

Uh - see your fuel gauge? See how it goes up to 60+? That's litres. User's Manual says 62 if I'm not mistaken.
