schnipps said:500 motorway miles to a tank?? from a 2.0 focus, how on earth you would manage I havent got a clue.
give us some hints, thats impressive
Fulcrum said:I cheated, thats on LPG so it only actually does 27mpg which considering lpg has 80% less energy then petrol is still pretty good. Engine is a Honda D series 1.6 sohc.
My old dohc d series would do about 70 miles realistically on a tenners worth of petrol so thats 350 miles, not great but not terrible either
Townlea said:Just been doing 33mpg average on the motorway today...
this means 990 miles i would get with £50
Going to the Santa Pod tommorow (from preston) so i'll see what my average mpg is to there and back

Fulcrum said:You have a st220 V6 on LPG ? Thats dam nice, I like the idea of a performance car on lpg since the high octane should have alot of advantages. 33mpg is a very good figure considering they are thirsty even on petrol arent they, is it an injection system?
I pay about 40p a litre, so strictly by the figures that makes it 720 miles for 50 quid. But in practise I think it may be closer to 600 miles for 50 I get because its only a simple carb system, it runs rich most of the time and its not adjusted well since I dont use the car much also I dont do any motorway miles at present.
A 55 litre LPG tank would only ever hold 80% of that due to pressure considerations btw
