Hey all,

 

 

 

Some may note I've added my usage to my signature. Pretty disheartening seeing what it costs.

I have been tracking my car for 2719KM and I have spent $907.84. Lol...
Post the signature link from your Fuelly if you run that and we can keep a live running tally of what are cars are using and discuss. If it gains traction maybe we should keep discussion and tracking seperate. But I am keen to see what other geek use.

Cheers

I'll have to have a look at Fuelly, thanks!  I know that my 2015 ix35 was averaging 10.5L/100KM.  My new 2018 Kona is averaging 6.3L/100KM so far.  Drove to Wanganui and back to Wellington on the weekend and still had over 1/2 a tank left, with lots of driving around Wanganui included too.  New car opex is going to be much less than before!

I give it less than 30 minutes before someone come in and posts their "equivalent cost" for their EV :-)

I give it less than 31 minutes before someone come in and posts their "equivalent cost" for their EV because they're not paying any road user charges or tax. :-)

Not going to place it in my signature but this is mine:

 

Only just recently started using the app. Will fill up again on Wednesday (when BP does 10c/L off) but my average is around 19km/L according to the cars computer.

My 2 Cars

 

 

Tracked that one for 52,000km @ average of $2.07 per L (95)

 

 

Tracked that one for 62,000km @ average of $1.95 per L (91)

 

 

 

Interestingly I get better fuel economy than my wife in both cars

Thats not bad at all, We should all use either how many L per 100Km we use or how many KM per L so it looks the same. I am thinking of KM per litre as you posted.
I get 8.6KM per litre......... 


Cheers

My hybrid runs 4.4 to 4.7 l per 100km. The slightly higher end is only when running on 98. Aircon, lights, whatever makes no difference to the average. That's calculated from the station pump reading, which has always matched the dash reading so I quit calculating it ages ago.

Huh?

 

No fuelly....

 

But I thought my 6.0l V8 Commodore would be worse @ 13.9l / 100km - but nope.

 

Comes in @ $850 for the same kms as you - based on $2.25/l for 91. (Yes I know some people think it should be on 98 - but I don't really notice the difference in how it drives.)

 

And wtf is up with your ca being so expensive!!!  :)

I got the wagon so it is slightly heavier and a lead foot. I use the torque a lot and it just drinks..
The older low compression V8's don't really mind what you throw at them but if I run 91 my car knocks!!
It can also make your economy worse running an octane too low for your engine and also can prematurely detonate or knock like mine does on 91 which is super bad!

Auckland is stop start stop start, dart out in front to get the gap before lights sort of ordeal.. If I drove like a nana i think id use a little less.

 

Got 9L per 100KM on the road to whangarei on the weekend.

I haven't used the fuelly app, but may look at using it in future.

 

I just did the calculations the old school way recently - brimmed my tank and reset my trip meter, ran the vehicle until almost completely out of gas, then brimmed it again and recorded the cost to refill and mileage driven since the previous fill. Added the cost of RUC at 6.2c per km and came out with a total cost (fuel + RUC) of 20.4 cents per Km.

 

This is for a 2016 Ranger Wildtrak.

 

Note that I used my new McKeown fuel card to fill up - this cost me 1.349 instead of the 1.749 which is the going rate pretty much everywhere else in Christchurch. I saved myself around $30 on the tank (80 litres), including the $2 it cost to drive out of my way to fill up.

 

Buying fuel from regular Chch fuel stations would seriously affect that 20.4c/km rate!!!

In other news, I really do chuckle every time I hear someone moan about petrol prices.
