Stock 92 @nd Gen 500kms+ on the open road (one trip). About 350 - 400 to and from work and into town a bit. I have got as low as 300 on a few occasions.

Managed 12km per litre on a Canberra -> Newcastle trip once. Usually average about 10km per litre on the freeway, and around 8-9km/L around town if I drive gently most of the time. 93 MX6 auto. Never run it dry, how many usable litres can you get out of a 2nd gen tank so I can work it out? 55L?

I get about 320k out of a tank round town, got 370k out in the country with a tiny trailer (about 300kg) over the holidays. Thats a std first gen turbo manuel 4WS. I belive that means that it has a smaller tank.

No nothing at all, PSI is the same, i feeled up on BP ultimate then went optimax to see and both were nearly the same. Go figure.

usually 400kms with both cars in the ity maybe 350 with MX-6

but Highway, Wagon will pull an easy 500kms but the Mx-6 can do it too but 450kms is more normal.

I know on one drive most of the fuel was spent in Sydney and over the blue mountains. after that one tank to and from the foot of the blue mountains. Well we did detour to Bathurst.

The worse I have ever gotten in that mazda's is 300km/s in the Mx-6 but it was an attack day maybe even 200kms
Tank was full but like it was on empty by days end and light on when I filled up. but it was thrashing it was just a day where, I had to do a lot of deliverys, from Hornsby to Loftus to Penrith.
but it was terrible traffic accients ETC.

I went from rockhampton and back last week, with 2 people, 2 suitcases, 2 cartons of beer, aircon and doing about 120 all the way , still managed to make it just over 500k's on a tank of BP ultimate. Usually though same as everyone else - about 350 to 400k's. I was pretty impressed with reliability and power for overtaking on hot days, so much better than the VN commy!!

Ill usually get between 450 - 520. All depends on driving style. Running BP ultimate or Shell Optimax. Thats boosting occassionally and a bit of hard driving.
