Interesting to see how the next couple of tanks go 👍
I'll monitoring and updating as I go :)

I think we're heading down south over the xmas break so that will be interesting with like 90% HWY driving, should hopefully show even greater results :fingers:

Just techfun :wink:

Not having drag vehicles anymore my only outlet to curb the withdrawals is to keep tinkering with this, not quite the same adrenaline rush but satisfies my curiosity and desire to play with tools :)

I hear dirt drags is fairly popular over there with a run what you bring approach.
A lot of bikes with paddles or twin rear wheel setups as linked in streetfighter forum.
200m  dirt/ sand strip with timing lights etc.

There used to be a property up north of here run by one of the biker gangs where they did the dirt an mud drags but I've not heard of them in years, never been to watch them myself.

The local dragstrip-speedway and jet boat course are my favourites :honk:

On a better note :) the spacer I installed is working well, just filled up again at the same point as last time with 47ltrs used in both refills and managed to slightly better the last result of 5.8ltrs - 798km's with 5.7ltrs - 829km's (730 to 750km prior to spacer fitment)

Still having 5ltrs left in the tank makes them pretty good results "me thinks" :D

Wow, that's terrific.  With the turbo added , I think my best will be around 700kms.

Dazz, you should get one for Trish's car...better torque and economy :) very easy to install, takes about 20-30 minutes.

Just looking at the Shark Racing site now and they've already bumped the price up to $94US :rolleyes:

Next update, I don't think I can get any better than this :D I'll be filling up at the same point again so another 47ltrs, this time achieved 872km's before the flashing fuel level came on so what's left in the tank should get me over 920km's :happydance:

That's awesome Craig. Last fill I was showing 6.9 L/100 km average for 1800 kms since I left Port Melbourne and showed 695 DTE without brimming it completely. I reckon 750 might be achievable in an SR DCT on a long light cruise.  :cool:

Yeah I'm pretty happy with it now :goodjob2: this was a normal (98ron) tank of fuel used as well, not the previous tank which had 10ltrs of methanol in it :twisted:
