So after 2 years of daily work, some aeromodding and a diesel FAS kill switch :

Which is :
  • 59.73L for 1902.2km ie 3.140L/100 and 53.13% saving
  • 15.78gal for 1182.2mi ie 74.91mpg and +113.4% over EPA.
A lot of thanks to MetroMPG, SVOBoy, Daox, Tasdrouille, PaleMelanesian, Piwoslaw and so many others that the whole Internet bandwidth wouldn't be enough

Have fun,
