you should realy use the search system on this site for your question .

but it mainly depends on what power you are running combined with how heavy your right foot is.

Thanks for replies.I don't really know to be honest.it doesn't feel standard.it had 4000 spent on it in dec last year where it had a v-pro kit fitted,a fuel pressure regulator and had boost level raised and dyno run.it wasn't me that had all this done as I just bought car.it does smell like it's running a bit rich but power output is ok

Matt I got similar stuff on mine as urs and from what alot of people tell me that mileage is about right.when I bought mine I did have a feeling it would be this juicy so I'm not surprised.but I just wanted to check.I think I'll get a run around just for work and use the skyline in the evening lol

yup - power costs money - there is no magic trick to it! however, I discovered that adding mods to the car does tend to increase consumption - I just had my PFC put in and cruise economy is now waaaay better than it ever was!

Like "frostmotorsport" said -"power costs money"
I still think that they are still really good cars for daily drive, if I drive my GTR bellow 3500rpm I can make 100km for 11liters, but if we push the engine it will do what he needs to do to produce all that power, it´s the simple rule that you need X gas to produce Y bhp.

If you own a GTR, then you should not care about gas milage, its the price you pay if you wanna play. But if you want numbers here are mine:

City driving with some heavy bursts here and there gets me about 300K a Tank.

On the motorway as you gents call it I can get about 600K a tank, cruising speed is around 140K's to 160K's an hour, on the Expressway will easily clip along at 180K's but I will drop into the 500K a tank range.

I spend on the average Y24,000 a month on gas, Japanese premium
100 Octane, don't know how much a liter costs, frankly I don't care, and its a daily driver, and I always fill up when I reach a quarter tank.

some times when i use to use my R32 GTR with just over 500bhp going to work and back which was around a 40 mile round trip , i would use around £20 with a couple of times of the heavy right foot going down and quickly seeing speeds way into the triple figures.

just an expensive hobby (addiction:chuckle:) but i love it :thumbsup:

Like I said when I started this debate is I haven't a problem with the amount of fuel I am using.as I love the car to bits.I was just asking if it was the norm to have that type of consumption as I only just bought my first skyline gtr and wasn't sure what to expect.just wanted to check that mine was the same as everyone elses.like many of u say for the power it's so worth it.so thanks again for all your posts as it was much appreciated.happy guzzling to us all lol

Fuel Consumption is directly proportional to right foot multiplied by level of modification.

If you have V-PRO it is almost certainly significantly modified.

At a steady 70-ish :rolleyes: I can manage around 20mpg, which basically means *** paper thickness pressure on throttle coupled to a 6 speed sequential - aka higher top gear than standard.

At sensible speeds :shy: on private roads on the continent :nervous: I can almost see the fuel guage dropping.

In simple terms, 250 to v Power tankful is very good. Giving it large and it can go in 120 or less.

As stated earlier, laws of physics basically, serious power at around 30% efficiency means petrol tanker volumes!

I usually carry a 10L fuel can in boot just in case........

However! Every drop is worth it. :D

V Pro, if its the gold box about the size of a standard ECU is HKSs top of the range engine management system. It permits the tuner to modify a number of parameters from fuelling, ignition, etc. etc.

Usually found on 600+ BHP cars which are running bigger turbo's, cams, capacity, bigger injectors, etc.etc.

Are you sure you have a V Pro? If you still have the AFMs you are not likely to have V Pro, more likely the lower spec HKS management unit.

Do a search/google and confirm what you have.

I checked the receipt from GT ART that maintained the car.it says hks v-pro kit.they charged 1100 quid for part alone and 1000 quid dyno labour.also says dyno tune and raised boost level and full v-pro set up so I think it is what u said it was mate.do u know where it will be located on car
