The video is "Private" and we can't see it.

Remember. The speedometer is in km/h. So 120km/h equals 75mph.

With the new intercooler, custum chip and boostgauge. I averaged on the last 8 fill ups. A fuel consumption of 6,4l/100km. Wich made me reach the goal of beating the highway fuel consumption given up from the manufacture.

Best tank was: 1136km with 71,21l making an average of 6,27l/100km!

So i was thinking. Doing more mods, more dificult mods to beat the 6l/100km

Seems like good acceleration considering it's just a 2L -I4.

Diesel prices just fell below the price of regular for the first time in ages here. Or rather, I should say regular petrol shot way up in price and has now exceeded the price of diesel.

It looks like the needle is on 'empty', but that is because of the angle the shot is taken, it is still above the red line, still 50km or more until the red light of empty tank lights up.

Photo of: 1136km with 71,21l making an average of 6,27l/100km.


So, what mods could i do, its a SUV, so there is a lot of aero drag unther the car.

Lowering the car for better milage?
Are you nuts? It's an suv, you don't lower it, because that will look ugly

Reading a lot of threads here about tire spats and belly pans and air dams, i will look more deeper in to that

No guesses or sugestions

Ok.

The way i drive is as following: when i see a traffic jam or slow trafic or a red light. I put the car in nutral and let it coast with an ideling engine.

When i need a constant speed. I use the highest gear possible.

What happens if i coast more times. Like when i aim driving at slow speeds. 50km/h and 70km/h.

Wil i benefit if i p&g (pulse and glide) at lower speeds?

What more mods could i do?
Where do i find info of an switch for cutting the fuel to the engine so it will die. With the key still in the 'on' position?
