    Caprice fuel economy worst I’ve ever seen

    Hi people. I’ve got myself a early wm caprice L98. 06 or 07. I’ve had L98’s before however nothing as thirsty as this. I’ve always done my own work on cars if a can and I want to dig a little deeper into this. I’m only getting around 300kms or less to a tank and the car smells. Like I burnt fuel...

    Fuel Consumption Issue

    I have an l67 and it uses a decent amount of fuel. At idle in park qhen warm uses 1.9-2.2l per hour on the display and in drive uses 2.2-.2.6l per hour. I've read it's meant to read around 1.6? What things could effect my idle usage? I think idle usage pretty much reflects driving usage which is...

    VZ Calais: Exorbitant fuel consumption

    Hi all, I've recently noticed that the fuel consumption in my 2004 VZ Calais has been pathetic. I'm averaging 300-400 kilometers per tank, and according to the l/100km it works out to be 15-17 litres. I remember when I first bought the car I was averaging 600-800 kilometers on a tank, even more...

    Running rough and loud

    Was wondering if anyone has any ideas, 2009 VE SV6 is running loud and rough. Took it to a mechanic who said it was the fuel solenoid valve (not so sure it is), was making a ticking sound and when taking foot off the accelerator it makes a loud fan/ winding down sound and is burning about 16-18L...

    High Fuel Consumption

    Sorry for posting again but my VT is using a lot of fuel, 15L per 100KM. I've recently changed the fuel pump, o2 Sensors, fuel filter, oil, oil filter, cleaned maf sensor and changed air filter and still it uses heaps of fuel. What else can I do to fix this issue?

    Holden Berlina VE 2007 - terrible fuel economy ?

    Hi I have a Holden Berlina VE 2007 with about 77k on the clock at August 2014 (so it's only 7 years old). It's the standard 3.6l V6 petrol engine supposedly at combined fuel economy of 11.0L/100km. I'm getting anywhere between 17L / 100km to 18L / 100km and I think it's just wrong - surely I...
