Not far, I think it takes 3+ litters to make a gallon.
I get from 16mpg city up to 27mpg on highway.

A surprise rebuild by brother (Master Mechanic) He calls it a stroker. Custom heads and cams with who the hell knows what else.Oh the NOS kit I dont have a bottle for.

Between 4 and 7 liters per gallon...

27 miles per gallon in miles per liter - Google Search


Google's a wonderful thing! And yes, it depends who's driving, and how you're driving it. I usually get 20-22 mpg in mixed highway and city driving, and I just got 27mpg (a personal best!) on an all-highway trip with no construction and light traffic.

So if that's right and people get from 16-27 MPG, you should get 4.23 to 7.13 MPL.

Past MPL is of course no guide to future MPL. Exiting owners should carefully read their manuals before investing in any "liter" saving equipment.

I can't believe you guys dont know the conversion between litres and gallons. I'm no mathmagician but I've been pissing for 37yrs -a lot of which has been in urinals. EVERY single urinal states right on the top: "1 gallon (3.8L) per flush"

I was thinking the exact same thing hahaha

Actually, what you would probably also want to know is how far can you go on a single tank of gas. Well i got about 380 miles out of one tank on 99% highway i could have passed 400 miles but i felt the need to buy some gas Around town i am normally at about 200 miles maybe a little more before i have to fill her up

Hi there, presuming that your tank have 16 gal, you have reached far, I not of around... so its so different the gallons or miles... a while ago when I saw for the 1st time the fuel consummations it was scary... but in fact a a GT of 4.0L doesn't drink that much... ufff.... anyway... it would be cool if the put a 6 gear box instead of the 5, do you know or somebody know if we can install a 6 gear box?

Cheers
