Fuel economy

Transport Canada rating on the V-6 is 6.8 L / 100 KM. In reality what kind of fuel economy are V-6 drivers getting for regular everyday driving.

Does the car calculate your Litres per 100km. If so does anyone have any numbers ?

I have the V-8 and 6spd.......... 1400km's on her ........ not really going for mpg here and still getting 10l/100 = about 28.2 canadian mpg ... It will get better once it is "broke in " The V-6 sould get lots better :-)

I did notice with traction Control off your gas mileage does go down. The computer is not restricting fuel flow.

you can always look, at the cadillac cts who has that same engine .. the cady and the camaro maybe weight about the same but maybe the gearing are different, i'm pretty shure anyway it can give you an idea of the v6 consumption..
