    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Default More Experimentation....

    This time of the slightly less potentially destructive type.

    I filled up last Friday, stuck the box in on the highest setting it would take and have been driving around Watford ever since like a 17 year old chav in a Nova (maximum fuel consumption, minimum respect). I wanted to see how much fuel I could use if I tried really hard. So that's nothing but town driving, accellerating hard, breaking harder, you get the idear. Well the end result after 80 miles around town was 35mpg! The lowest I've ever seen and probably the lowest I will ever see.

    Next I filled up this morning, took out the box and drove like...er, well me, down the M25, allon the M4 to here. About 60 miles at 48mph average. That should give me the best possible fuel economy to compare I though. Well the computer says 68.5mpg so it's probably about 65mpg.

    I was seeing over 70mpg just driving on the motor way but I did get over taken by a few lorries.

    I'm sure someone will come along in a minute and say, "what was the point of that?". Well, I wanted to see if it was my car that was responsible for my fuel economy figures being so high or my driving and apparently, it's me.

    Ive fitted a D-T-U-K tuning box to my rep weapon and its unbeleiveable the difference its made 48mpg instead of 36 , and the flat spot has gone and it now has a sodding great lump of torque to throw the tin box forward at quite a rate of knots , so thats K&N with the tuning box , hid's , and me subwoofer , im not spending anymore on that car ....

    I think thats a bit over the top! As he has said before, it is his car, he posts on here of his own choice and its our own choice if we read them or not. I for one enjoy his threads, they make me laugh And also where else could you find someone who is willing to take a 10 grand car apart just for fun.
