Hi. We have been here before. The usual reply is.....you have a GTR and are worrying about petrol costs. I worry about money but petrol......when it is empty I fill up
My bhp will be proved at the dyno day but I think that it is about 400 bhp. On a run to Rod Bells and back (190 miles, A50 & M6), I got 19mpg @ 90 mph cruise
I had to drive at 60-70 on saturday (car following) and would say that figure would have been better but did not measure it.
Try asking how much you use on a track day
Ok fair enough. I only know I did 19mpg as I started with a full tank and then refilled it when I got home so I knew how much I had used. Don't usualy bother checking but I bet some of the anoraks on here do
Look in the mirror and do the biggest smile you can mark that off on the mirror with a felt tip pen - then do a straight face and mark that off - then write 7-8mpg at the top point and 28mpg and the lowest do a few scale marks
All you do now is when you get to your destination check your smile in the mirror for an instant reading.....
I was getting about 220miles a tank (50 Litres) from my car when she was running a mere 348 bhp (although she was internally buggered unknown to me).
I have had a lot of mods including a new N1 engine and Reimax competion Turbines and we are estimating power at about 480 bhp at only 1 bar (not dyno'd yet) I can still manage to get 200 mile + from a full tank!
