Default How's your SR20DET's fuel consumption?

Just wondering, how is your SR20DET's fuel consumption like?
Mind sharing how many litres does your tank hold (60 litres) normally, which is about 100+ bucks.

How far can you go for that amount with:

- town driving?
- smooth cruising all the time with no jack rabbit starts?

- crazy ass mofo driving like a batshit from hell?

Thanks for sharing~!

mokomoko,
all components std except for the larger charge-cooler and the sr20det being in a bluebird 910 chassis, i managed to get 10km/L.

i am curious to know what the others are getting as well.

sorry for butting into this thread, I was just browsing through, and I gotta say:

10KM / L is bloody good mate! i'm disappointed with my own 2L N/A (DC5) , i'm only getting 8KM/L !!!

vagabond,
you must be flooring the throttle constantly! :) bear in mind, i ran stock boost and only flooring it a couple of times while in a mix of highway and city driving.

10km / L is damn good
right now i tuned down my fuel pressure slightly cause it was running too rich
i have yet to calculate mine yet but i want to get an indicator of how much can an SR get on average

mokomoko,
any idea what's the mileage like AFTER the fuel gauge light is permanently on? i might bring my jerry can just to find out what's the limit before i run out of fuel.

no idea yet. havnt done the full run out of fuel situation yet. But it is bad for your engine to do that. Usually tanks have about enough reserves to drive another extra 30 - 40km after the red light starts flashing.

I havnt not tuned my car yet. All my air/fuel ratios are out. Currently what i tested im runing about 7km per litre.....which is horrible.

no worries vagabond. if only more owners would contribute their fuel consumption figures.

mokomoko,
your fuel gauge warning light flashes? mine goes on, then off and then after a little more driving it stays on which tells me i'd better refuel within the next 10km or else...

not flash as in blinking. more like just turning on to remind me the car is thirsty. i know u get roughly around 30kms in the reserve tank, but that will be pushing it already.

mokomoko,
ah, that makes sense then. hopefully I still maintain my current fuel consumption regardless of my recent wheel swap. much wider and larger diameter.
