i see from the other thread that you drive a Getz. a friend of mine rented a Getz for 2 weeks when he went to visit family in europe and he was quite happy with it. normally he drives a golf GTI turbo.
What a neat looking little car! Too bad they aren't selling them over here.
Looks like the economy average is 6.1 L/100 km (38 mpg US). Hopefully you'll do better than that. Good luck.
Thank you. yes I like the little rascal too... If you visited the Hyundai site, you can see the pics of my previous vehicle which was a Starex 2.5 liter turbodiesel intercooled MPV. ( not sold in the US either) It was } when it came to guzzling diesel fuel. I was not much of a worrier of fuel saving till I discovered that it was guzzling 65 liters of fuel for a 400 km trip !!! ( approx 14 MPG !!!)
It was only 14 mo. old and had clocked only 40K kms when I decided to dump it. I sold it without even bargaining with the buyer !
I managed to eek out a 4.8 lt/100kms up tilll now as a record. I do not exceed 80kph, use as high as possible gears without wracking the engine...
And with the advice from you guys, I hope to see even lower than that...
EDIT / ADDITION : Hey 95, I saw you are from Ala... I lived in Edmonton for 4 years... I love the province ! Hope to visit again some time in my lifetime... All the best !!
