Alex,

Have a look on page 12 of this thread, I posted them there.

Fuel economy is around 7 - 7.5km/L constantly. I rarely go under 7km/L except when I do allot of town driving and then it drops to around 6.5km/L worst case. I have reached 8.5km/L before, but thats doing 110km/h with highway driving only.

Noted on your previous post.
I just thought it may have heen affected by the tweaks you described on your most recent visit to the dyno.

EDIT: I just noticed, it is the same post. Thanks.

Flippen hell those mags look nice :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Your troll's going to look smart :blonde:

My friend with the Grabbers says just make sure you run your pressures correct when you're on the tar.
He was too lazy to re inflate in the rain on the way back last Saturday and you can see the wear from doing 70km with under inflated tires.
