Yeah, about that... currently I'm struggling to get the consumption down from 7.7 - 8 L/hkm (29.5-30.5 US mpg) that was normal for me when not smashing the loud pedal a lot. When having fun and/or Auto-X'ing this could go up to 10 L/hkm (23.5 mpg).

The last two tanks, while trying (learning) to hypermile I've been able to get an average of 7.4 L/hkm (31.8 mpg) and the current tank looks promising (refill coming soon), but not really ground-breaking. I have to note that the mileage figures are from fill-ups vs mileage only. The car has no instrumentation whatsoever. I just have the speedo and the odo (without secondary/trip odo! Have to write down the total mileage at fill-ups ). No rev-meter either, so I don't really regret not knowing the BSFC curves

There's no EPA rating or in fact any data on fuel consumption for my specs, as this engine was never present (stock) in the 'cento. I've come across, however, figures in the region of 8 to 10 L/hkm from users' own experience. That's quite a lot for the engine size and car weight, isn't it? Of course probably anyone who puts an oversized engine in a car does so to have fun and bash the hell out of it , but still...
