The manual says 22km/L.... which reads 4.5 L per Km....

and... by the way... you said preference is for imperial units, despite metric units being the international standard used by 190 out of 191 nations and 95% of the World's population.......
If you want this to be a World Wide Report.... maybe publish both?

Keep smiling - see you down the road.

That is with aftermarket air intake, aftermarket racing pipes and rejetting.
What's odd is that immediately after the above mods the fuel consumption used to be about 0.5l/100km lower (consistent); at some point in time it jumped to the above values. Can't find an explanation except maybe for my wrist :)
