i will just give a general informations, 4 cylinders cars carburetors will run 8 to 10 km/l , 4 cylinders cars injector will run 10 to 12 km/l.. than 6 cylinders cars carburetors will run 6 to 8 km/l ..than 6 cylinders cars injectors will run 7 to 9 km/l ...jeep and 4x4 will consume more , driving in high ways are different than city and traffic , and of course old cars which need injector calibration and CO calibrations will consume more...
excuse me for my English ( im french educated )..regards

hardbody: How do i even start to calculate the consumption. ok lets see....on a full tank, my montero takes me to benin and would have gone down to near half tank. You work that out yourself.

My huyndai takes me to owerri on full tank and then i refill. I hope this helps
Drive a montero sport as well, on a full tank with highway driving all through, i get about 350miles to a 17gallons tank (563.15km/68.04); IL/8.28km and that is fair enough.

Flyboy Zee: My EOD - Honda Accord EX 2003/2004 Model, I4 Engine with a 2.4l Capacity usually consumes exactly half tank from Yenegoa to Benin. I usually fill the tank to the brim, that is fill up the tank till I see the fuel in the pipe and drive with AC all the way. It has always been half thank both ways.

As for my 2002 Acura 3.2TL Type S with a V6 Engine capacity of 3.2l, I drove from Yenagoa to Uyo with half tank and also made the return journey on the same amount of fuel.

I can't really say what both cars consume exactly and I have never taken the time to note their tank volumes so I can't come up with any figures. But, if you know both cars and their fuel tank volumes and the distances covered as in Benin and Uyo, I think you can help out here or what do ya think?

Yenegoa to Benin is about 175km. I think the EOD fuel consumption is on the high side. Maybe with AC on as you rightly said that's the reason the car consumes half tank from Yenegoa to Benin. I have always liked EOD. Nice car.

berem: Another silly post! How on earth will I know that? Do u expect me to be carrying my calculator to know how many litres I consume per kilometre? Next topic pls!
Simple maths...nd that also helps to know how to manage
Re: How Many Kilometres Can Your Car Travel Per Litre Of Fuel? by ba_aliyah(m): 1:09pm On Jul 18, 2012
@ Femi4, pls what is fuel magic.

My 97 civic consumes 1 litre over 11.3km. 01 camry averages 9.5km/litre.

According to Femi4, if i use fuel magic i can do 100km with 4 litres. After saving 5 litres with the magic.

There is little difference in your consumption with or without A/C if ur speed is above 110km/h

OK. Without AC, In-town driving takes 100km/8L of fuel while highway driving its 100km/10L. With AC its just additional 5L. Hyundai car.

My 2008 toyota yaris has a very high degree of fuel economy.1 litre to 10km but if i fail to service it early,it reduces to 9km
Re: How Many Kilometres Can Your Car Travel Per Litre Of Fuel? by Ikenna351(m): 10:49pm On Jul 18, 2012
The topic of this thread makes it uninteresting to peep in.

The usual way of checking a vehicle fuel economy or consumption rate is by how many litres your vehicle consumes every 100 kilometers or how many miles it does for a gallon (city & highway figures stated separately. It makes more sense than 1 litre per how many km. Are you a miser? Lol!

Then, a Petrol Head like me would instead check how many kilometers or miles does my vehicle get out of 50 litres or full tank, for the city and highway.

There was a girl that posted here (Berem or something is her name) people attacked. I wouldnt blame the girl for what she said because the topic does really sound weird. You dont count kobo kobo to know how much your monthly expenditure is. Instead, you check your account or earning at every month end to know how your strength of savings is or if you are been wasteful.

Re: How Many Kilometres Can Your Car Travel Per Litre Of Fuel? by nas 00(m): 12:24pm On Jul 19, 2012
Hullo NLers, I observed expressions like "my car consumes xyz Kilometers/Litre" in some of the previous posts. Pls, this is very wrong. Your car consumes xyz litres of fuel/Kilometer is the appropriate expression.

That said, my 2003 E0D (4cyl, 2.4L, DOHC) expends less than half tank from Ekpoma to Ibadan with AC all the way.
I still use the car for a day or two in Ibadan (with A/C) before hitting the half tank mark on the fuel gauge. However, I've noticed that the gauge falls faster between half tank and empty, compared to between full and half tank.
I should take time to do the math, and come up with precise values of my car's fuel consumption/Km one of these days embarassed
Re: How Many Kilometres Can Your Car Travel Per Litre Of Fuel? by ba_aliyah(m): 8:01pm On Jul 19, 2012
That is why it is wrong to say my car consumes half tank or quarter tank of fuel to Owerri or to Lagos from wherever. Who knows the tank capacity of ur car. I had a Golf 2 (Syncro) with 80litre tank capacity instead of normal 55 litres. Tell us how many liters ur car consumes over a given distance,
@davinchi, i bet ur 08 Yaris consumes more than normal at 1:10. Yaris is either 1.3 or 1.5 litr, even '05 corolla with 1.8litre engine consumes less.

Well, I've set myself a new record.

Car make: Audi.
Car model: S8 Quattro.
Engine size: 4,172cc V8 2 x DOHC 40V.
Power: 360 bhp.
Torque: 430 Nm.
Car weight: 1,858 kilograms (4,096 lbs).
Car year: 2002.
Fuel tank capacity: 90 litres / 19,8 gallons.
Fuel type: Petrol.
Fuel computer: Yes.
Transmission: 5-speed Tiptronic.
Air conditioner: Yes.
Fuel range as indicated by fuel computer: 495 miles.
Actual range consistently achieved: 508.

508 / 90 = 5,6 miles per litre.
5,6 miles per litre x 4,54 (1 gallon) = 25,4 miles per gallon.

Nigeria figures = Distance covered / tank capacity (940 / 90) = 10,4 kilometres per litre.

This was achieved with mixed driving styles - city and highway.


Proof that big engines can be economical, if driven properly. If my car was a 6MT (6-speed manual) the consumption figures would have been even better. smiley

My 2005 Nissan Altima 3.5L V6 does an average of 16Mpg i.e 6.8Km/L for city driving - Iyana ipaja to V/I. I guess that's good right?

for only 175 km,half tank is a lot.

I never turn my aircon off. It's automatic climate control, so I just leave it on auto, which keeps the cabin temperature constant.
Re: How Many Kilometres Can Your Car Travel Per Litre Of Fuel? by Nobody: 8:37am On Aug 10, 2012
For people who work in corporate environments and have official cars fueled and maintained by company this is no biggie. My company policy is 6km per litre. We record our litres of fuel bought and kilometer readings every morning or night and these are used to check you and make sure you work for company's good. It's only as car ages and fuel consumption increases that below 6km/ltr is acceptable. Prospective business owners take note.

Siena: I never turn my aircon off. It's automatic climate control, so I just leave it on auto, which keeps the cabin temperature constant.
@Sienna, was going to ask this question but now that you answered; I still need clarification to the climate control thing versus aircon. Do you agree that actively leaving your aircon on rather than climate control will significantly affect the total Mile versus full tank of gas even with your Audi?
