does 6th gear on a r32 give less KM/L?
« on: December 22, 2020, 05:41:15 pm »
was cruising today on the highway at 100, and 6th gear gave me about 8-9 k/l while 5th gear shot well up to 17-22 k/l, is 6th gear worse for km/l or is mine just buggy or something lol

cheers

You sure it wasn't set to litres per km?

it says km/l on the infometre and idk why it'd jump from 8-9 km/l 6th gear to 18-22 km/l for 5th gear

Yours is Jap import so will be in KM per litre not Litres per 100KM.
So the higher the number the better efficiency, as you are covering more KM for each litre of fuel you use.
