Under two liters for the first time (That's 121.07 mpg US @ 54 mph avg. speed)

Yesterday was the day when I broke the mysterious two liter fuel consumption barrier. Fillup result showed 1.94 l/100km @ 86.9 km/h average speed. That is 121.07 mpg (US) at 54 MPH avg speed. Fuel flowed onto the ground so I would say tank was full.



Next weekends target is set to 206 km/h end speed on standing mile drag race on same car.

Well done!

Do you have a complete list of mods somewhere? I see several mods in your fuel log that aren't listed on the vehicle profile.

At an average speed of 54 MPH! I can only dream of a car like that being sold in the US.
