Question Fuel Mileage (The dreaded winter)

Hey guys,

Was just wondering what the rest of you are averaging for fuel during the winter.

I'm getting roughly 12.9 L / 100 KM.

Can't recall exactly what the manufacturer stated. Think it was roughly 10 or 11 L / 100 KMs.

I think mine is a lot worse. I don't know if it's the ski rack, or my new wing, besides the cold weather, but it sure is sucking. Recently I only got like 24MPG on a 400km trip when I usually get 28-32MPG in the summer time.

I'm getting 425-525km per tank in mixed driving mostly in the city. My right foot is twice as heavy as my left foot.

I am gettin 11 L/100 Km. (~450Km between fills). I only have ~10K on the odo so I think this will go up a little. Also I find the tranny fluid takes a long time to warm up... contributes to poor economy. If anybody has switched transmission fluid and found they are getting better cold startups please post what you used. Thanks.

I've been getting 11L/100KM for the last little while. Slightly less when I have long stretches of highway. I usually shift between 3000-3500 unless someone ticks me off .

Cool

and I thought my gas mileage sucked. I'm getting between 10 to 11L/100K. Closer to 11L lately. I don't know how I did 9.75 for one tank, as I don't recall going on a long trip with my car. No much difference between winter and summer (after Sep, 'cause I don't have my car back then), but in winter gas mileage is lower.

well, with my style of driving (I double clutch and match revs every gear change)... I'm getting ~ 11.9L/100kms I'm driving a GT though on 91+ octane. in the summer I see 10.2/3 / 100kms. You also have to factor in idle/warmup time.

Thanks for all the replies.

Must be the darn cold winter here in Ottawa.

Think the best I had was 8.9 L / 100 KM during one of the summers.

Tulit - which motor did you want to see? I only swapped out the 22b block and turbo at the same time... I used my stock heads and intake manifold... btw, give me a shout sometime, we should sit down for coffee on campus sometime!

I knew I had extra bad mileage,er, kilometerage. I (summer TOO) get only like 400km a tank, this last tank I got 380km.

So a 60 litre tank,... 6.5km/L

Is that about 15L/100km? Yeah I guess it is....

Guys for a 60L tank we should be getting a hell of a lot more mileage, oh well, Subies RULE!
