Hi folks!

There was a discussion of fuel consumption. In cold weather in winter - short trips, my 92 Griffin 2.3T takes up to 14 l/100 km = 23.52 mpg and even some more. In Finland preheater is a must and I do have it.
In the summer on the road it takes at the minimum, very decent driving, 10-11 l/100 km = 23.52. Is this normal?

Greetings from Finland

nope
that seems very high
My stage 6 aero is giving me 27 mpg
On the old abbott ecu it would do 30 - 35 on a long trip...
I would expect the cold weather cosumption to be lower but increase in the summer ..

could be lots of things

I would check the air filter first and take it from there....

10l/100km is actually equivalent to 28mpg, which is not too bad- have you confirmed that with a tank measurement rather than just the EDU display, which are notoriously inaccurate?

Dear Mark E & Ylee Coyote

Yes I measure regularly from the actual mileage driven and the amount of fuel gone.
Filters have been changed according to the service programme.
Cold motor takes of course more fuel.

cheers
