Default I finally find out my STI.......

the fuel light will come out when you used up 45L of gas.
which means our 06 STI has 15L to go b4 emptying the tank.

when my fuel light came out today and pump it up right away, 45L for 341KM
which i think this is pretty good millage since 15L for me can go for about 80-100KM ......which 440 KM per tank I think is really good for a car like this...
and my car finally finish running in..

and it clear my concern b4 if you have read my thread about millage on STIs.

just something wanted to share with you guys...

cheers...

That sounds about right for mine as well. A little bit over 300km to a tank. Could make it go further, but then what's the point of having and STi?

Yeah, that's about right.

Be aware that the fuel gauge "drifts" as your car gets older. We're not exactly talking high precision instrumentation here so you could end up with less or more fuel when the light comes on in the future...

well, i guess we all take this reading +/- right. at first quarter tank runs for
70KM and 140KM for half a tank really caught my attention...

but since I found out how much fuel I used until the light comes out then I am cool with what the car gets.

This was with a mix of about 80% highway, 20% city driving...as part of my trip to Osoyoos...DT Vancouver to Osoyoos, around the local area, back to DT Vancouver...one 1 tank of regular!

I also drove from DT Vancouver, BC to Vancouver, Wash., filled up...continued to Hillsboro, Or....turned around and drove all the way back to DT Vancouver, BC again. 12 hours+ of driving on 1.5 tanks of regular.

I wish I had an STi or WRX for the power...but I do love my 2.5i for its mileage!

That's right. You race along at 150km/h, and I drive 100km/h heading to California. You have to stop for gas about 50 times, I gas up twice. So, I beat you there! yeah right

Since I already have the gas guzzler, if I were to get a daily driver, I'd totally get a 2.5i. Damn that's ridiculous mileage. Is this the norm or the exception here? (Speaking of the car, not the James).

I always thought that if I don't boost my car it would have similar mileage to a 2.5i :P

So my driving style has been limited to no more than one boost a drive

Wow, you've also got an incredible amount of self-control because I know even without a turbo, I would be stomping on the gas pedal like I was making mashed potatoes .

haha, but stomping on your pedal would make anyone smile...stomping on my pedal makes me wonder where the freaking power is??? The only time I opened her up on the highway, was on the way back from Alki Beach on I-5...when I found the top speed of the 2.5i (a whopping 180km/h electronically limited)

All you people have it easy. Usually a full tank of 94 octane nets me under 200 km's

Crap... are u guys serious? I am lucky to get 280, let alone 300... on 94 octane... I usually get around 250 with the way I drive... best tank was 320 before the light came on when I first got the car... I can get 20-30 kms more once the light comes on, so 340-350 is what I could have gone...

usually the light comes on around 230-260 for me... but since doing my 8% in weight reduction, I've gotten about 30 kms better mileage! so now I can drive hard and get 260-290 before light comes on ... yippee!
