That is a bit high, my 3.5 is around 15 lph for around town driving, and can go to mid-high 11's for highway. I generally use 98 in mine

I would suggest giving your MAF a clean and check air filter is clean. Try using 95 for a few tanks and see if it gets any better.

Do you have any accessories fitted?

No accessories, no modification...

I will try 95 for few fills and 98 after that to check the progress.

Yeah way too high for unmodified unless you have an obscenely heavy right foot (V6 is VERY thirsty if you hammer it everywher). Mine used to get 12-15 (11 highway on a good day) when I bought it. Muddies, rooftop and lift have raised it to around 15-18.

I do admit I have heavy right foot. But not to that extent.... Would you think transmission mode makes any difference? I heard from few people that auto sucks more juice compared to manuals

I highly doubt it would be that much.

I have an 89 NG manual. I found using 91 she used a lot of fuel and suffered slight power loss as compared to 95. 98 made no difference. The old girl carries large drawer unit in back, second battery, homemade steel roof rack, bullbar and winch. When i went from 29's to 31's it suffered a bit more but nothing extreme. I am a (according to wife), a leadfoot. I get around 17 to the 100 mixed town / highway km's.

There is a lot of info elsewhere on this forum about the damage that e10 can do to motors that are not designed for it. the older the PJ's I assume do not say in the manual that e10 can be use, so don't. Basically it is the alcohol that rots rubber components and because the alcohol can absorb water the metal parts can rust from the inside. You won't find out about it till it is too late.

Hi All,

Just an update...I have been using 95 for last two fills and it is 14.70L/100 Km compared to 91 (18.30L/100 Km). Do you think thats significant difference? I also did my 100K service. Not sure if that helped a bit..

I would gie a try to 98 for next few fills to see if that makes any significant difference.

I honestly can't tell the difference between 91 (E10) and 98 octane, except for the 20c per litre price difference.

For what it's worth, I use 98 Ron Shell or Mobil almost exclusively. The main reason being I find I get a better response from the engine, better economy when on the freeway and especially when towing (1800kg 1990 Evernew Caravan). Recetly went to Lakes Entrance for the Christmas holidays, 18lts/100km on the trip down. Best economy I've got with the van on in ages. Coming home I could only get 95 Ron from Caltex / wollworths in Lakes, into a head wind the whole way home.....Haven't done the sums yet, but had to do a fuel pit stop in Officer on the was home....it's going to hurt!!!!
