Default 13mpg for a s80 t6 2000....???




Hi, i was wondering, i think i'm burning too much fuel and way too fast. about 450km for 80L. isn't suppose to be more then that? i own a s80 t6 2000. when i put the meter on the fuel consumption instataneous, it shows about 7 or 8 L/100km when driving normally, rpm about 1600. when i get to a stop sign and restart then it goes up to 36 or even 40 L/100km and it takes about 25-30 seconds before it draws back to normal number. when i restart after the stop sign, rpm doesn't event reach 2000rpm. i try to drive slow but something seems wrong, isnt it? thanx for your help [align=right][/align]





thanx to bigern45,made the math for me, so i can speak in mpg instead of km and litres.maybe this title will help me a bit more.i don't step on it as often as before due to the13mpg i'm getting, i try to drive a slowly has possible keeping the rpm down....please help, any suggetion?

Does the message window mention troubles? If so, have the codes read. This forum could help you fix it or bring it in for tuneup/repair. It should be getting about 25 mpg.

25 mpg if you drive like my grandma... if your enjoying the turbo youll probably get 18 in the city and 22 on the highway...

I am your Grandma, Now watch your tongue or I'll put ants in the oatmeal raison cookies next time.
And another thing, there is no reason to do jackrabbit starts if you leave early enough, didn't my daughter teach you anything?

You should actually calculate it yourself and compare it to the computer results, to see how accurate the calculation is.
