Hello,

I'm not sure if this is correct but I only seem to get 430km out of my fuel tank? This is with my 2.4L with 95 octane..

I have had the guys at the mechanics clean out all the sensors but still only get that.

I'm not expecting to get the "9.6/100" but surly I should get a bit more, Anyone have the same issue?

Zooks have never been great on fuel. My Vitara only gets around 400ish from a tank. They are all bricks on wheels.
When I had my 2000 GV 2.5lt I only got about 450ish

How many litres are you using for the 430kms? I'm about 450ks - 48litres in our GV.

having heavier tyres like muddies or all terrains can be an issue with consumption, likewise accessories for extra weight/drag, is the car standard or modified?

I have only added springs to lift it a little and upgraded to 225/75/R16 ATs. Currently have a awning and basket on there for my trip coming up next week to straddie.

I haven't looked at the numbers exactly but when I fill it up completely it hits 430 approx when I hit the Empty bar.
