I have gotten down to the rated 8.5L/100km driving 96km home from work which was 90% highway....I can't complain just did a fishing trip to North East Ontario 700km one way and only used 158L of fuel plus to and from work totalling 1600km (994miles) of 158L which is right around 9.9L/100km or 23.8MPG....Cant complain considering my buddies 2007 Silverado stopped to fill up 3x hahahahahaha

It does what i need it to do and it has great pick up for a V6 with a turbo...
They don't have a turbo.
