Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Still breaking mine in (only 350kms) but so far the fuel consumption says an average of 26 litres per 100kms!!! Can that be right?? I haven't even given it some yet!

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Have you tried a reset? Often the average is quite high to start with due to lots of time idling during shipping/transport/pre-delivery etc.

I was getting 23 from my 5.7 MY05 when new. Will come down loads after 1500km or so.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Only 380?
That must hurt.
I am getting over 1,000 on the CRD.
One might say, that in a race from Sydney to Brisbane, between a SRT and a CRD, the CRD might win, as would not need to stop several times for fuel.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Wouldnt exactly call doing the speed limit (50 - 60kms) the "loud pedal". They told me to baby this thing for the first 1000kms, so I have been sticking to that.
