When you say you're averaging 7.2 lt per 100. What is you average cruising speed? At 110 on the open road I can't get below about 8.7. Also can you tell me what Tyre pressures your EVIC is displaying.
Hi, sorry for the late reply, holidays and all that...
I was keeping to the speed limits, maybe a couple of K's lower, just in case. The trip down I was getting 6.8 ( my mate said that was because it was down hill.. Ha ha.) speed limits between Bribie Island and Grafton have the full range from 50 to 110, when we arrived at our destination which was just south of Grafton, I had to do a couple of trips into town, so the consumption went up a bit to around 8, which of course came down to the average of 7.2 when we arrived home.
I used cruise control for most of the trip and since new Diesel Power Additive in the tank.
Air Con was on and tyre pressures are at 2.5 bar running on Michelins.
Apart from using a Ryco Air Filter everything else is standard. What I have found is that if I am on my own, travelling at a constant 95kmh, I can get the consumption down to 5.8 which is amazing. After getting the Jeep I did 3 full tanks to speedo checks and found the fuel read outs to be fairly accurate.
