Gas Mileage in Canada

My fellow Canadians,

I'm looking @ purchasing a 2014 2LT 3.6L V6 engine in the next couple of months. For any Canadian who reads this, could you please tell me how much do you spend to fill up your gas tank and at what cost per litre. Do you fill up when the gas tank is completely empty or when its 3 quarters empty?

Thanks!

So what is the gas price/litre in your area? How much does it cost you to fill up is what I'm asking.

In Hamilton, it's about .98/litre. So it would probably cost me just under $71 to fill up the tank completely.

I havent driven my car since I parked it for the winter in October/November of 2014 and gas was still ~1.37/L for regular. I always put in 93/94 and it was ~$1.55+/L and it would routinely cost between $90-100 to fill up from empty and last ~450km's worth of shit-eating grins (DIC shows 14.3L/100 average).

Does that help? Thats with the 6.2L LS3 with bolt-ons.

Yeah that helps a lot.

With a 3.6L V6 engine, I'm sure I won't be spending as much on gas as you were with the 6.2L engine. The smaller engines do have a better fuel economy.

Also , with the LLT V6 engine (which I have), you can use regular

You should check your owner's manual...you will have the LFX V6 engine...to see if regular is the recommended fuel.

Alright, I'll look into it or else ask the dealership prior to purchase. I'm getting the vehicle in April or May so I still have some time. I just wanted to get a feel of what I'm getting myself into.

I filled up tonight.. the low fuel warning went off.. took $65 of regular. LFX doesn't need anything more than that. Average L/100KM recorded over 35,000KM is 10.8. I do a lot of Toronto 401 - so sit a lot.. and have winters on now...

I put three tanks a week into it.. maybe 2.5.

LFX takes regular fuel. I spend about 100 per month but I like to cruise around a lot for no good reason. Also like to be a bit heavy on the throttle off a redlight so just take that into consideration.

I average about 11.5L/100km in all my travels.

But really though, no matter V6, V8 or supercharged V8... you ain't buy this car for the fuel economy!

If you have to ask, than maybe this is not the car for you, even as a daily driver.
Yes, the V6 will be somewhat more fuel efficient that the V8, but it also depends on your driving habits.

Back when I had a bolt-on llt I had between 15 and 17.X L/100km, no less.

that's worse than my current ls3

They really truly don't.

Ive had my camaro since June 09 and all our local SS buddies would laugh at my MPG lol This v6 thinks its a V10

If I milk it, and I mean milk it, I get 440km for a full tank. Key word, milk.

If I drive it like I stole it, I can burn half a tank in an hour (ALOT LESS sometimes)

Exactly what I average with my massive 3.6 LMAOOOO


Honestly, I learned the laws of physics because of this V6 Camaro lol
Heavy Car, get the bigger motor, works a lot less harder than the smaller motor to get it moving.


To be clear, I bought the V6 solely for insurance reasons. Not for gas or cost of car. 600 a month for a v6 or 800 for a v8
Keep in mind I got the car almost 6 years ago and I was a lot younger

Lol, I think was being conservative, probably 150 a month for me. But I don't drive it for work. Just evenings and the occasional weekend :P

We go to a few Camaro trips a year to the states...There're SSs and V6s
We all gas up at the same time and between the V6 & SS it's about $3-$4 difference (I have a V6 & always use Super)

As mentioned earlier, your fuel economy is going to depend more on your driving style and whether you're cruising on the highway or stuck in city traffic than it is on whether the car is a V6 or V8.

My car (V8, M6, TVS 2300, making about 570 HP) can get as high as 27 mpg (~10.1L/100 km) if I'm on a long highway drive and keeping it around 100-110 kph. In the city it can be as low as 10 mpg (~27L/100 km) because boost + 2nd or 3rd are a crapload of fun

I only use Sunoco 94 and fill up when I'm down to about 1/4 tank left. My first fill up this year was just over $55.00 for 43L. Last year it would have been closer $65.00 for the same fill up.
